AriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAriAri
DESCRIPTION:

Ari is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence.

Those ears are precious and that face melts your heart, such a sweet boy.  Ari would love to be apart of your family in his forever home.  He is settling into his foster home so please watch for updates from his foster family. 

Updates:
  • Ari is a very sweet dog who is quite gentle and loves his humans. He has learned that stairs are not scary and can even be fun to run up and down on. He is respectful of boundaries in the home (no dogs in kitchen). He is easy to walk on leash, even if his heel is not perfect yet. Ari is aware of other dogs, but does not seem interested nor bothered by them, even if they are barking at him from across the street. Ari is good at staying quietly in the crate for a couple of hours. Ari has a great bark and likes to let the mailman know when he comes to the door. Ari sleeps well through the night on his doggie bed. Ari is working hard on housebreaking and is doing a great job. Ari is a very laid back dog, but does have moments of being playful. If Ari sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet him.

Arbor adopted
ArborArborArbor and his foster bud.ArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArborArbor
DESCRIPTION:

Arbor was surrendered as his person said she had no time for him.  Arbor is very much a teenager and is in need of obedience training and structure.  He can be very protective of his person which needs to be corrected.  While this is a trait found in German Shepherds it does need to be managed by their person.  He has good leash manners and is crate trained.  He is currently settling into his foster home, watch for updates.

Updates:
  • Arbor is starting to relax in his foster home with two resident dogs: a young bossy female shepherd and a laid-back adult male. He likes the human children in the home and is learning not to jump on them, which is how he says I love you right now. 

    He’s completely unfazed by the roughhousing and noise that accompany young children and so far does not seem to have any objections to having any part of his body touched. Arbor is also learning that humans do not like affectionate nibbles on their ear and hands while receiving kisses. He takes correction nicely. 

    Arbor is being fed in his crate and that’s where he keeps his bones too. He is not happy when the resident dogs approach the crate while he has food or a food treat in there. He doesn’t seem concerned about the toys. He does not react to the children approaching the crate while he has food in there but that is still being very carefully supervised. He brings balls and toys to the kids to play.

    Arbor appears to be housebroken and doesn’t mind the crate. He likes to go for walks and has excellent leash manners. Arbor is very happy to come inside after his walk and knows after 2 days which house he goes into.

    Arbor really wants a forever home. He would like to have kids throw balls for him and to go to training to learn good manners. He would be fine as an only dog or with a laid back resident dog. If he goes to live with another high energy dog he will need an owner who is experienced in being the boss while they establish boundaries.

  • Unfortunately, Arbor tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Arbor is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Arbor is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 10 weeks old
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: ???
Housebroken: No, I'm a puppy!
Obedience Trained: No, I'm a puppy!
Living With: Foster
History: Shelter

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes
Other Dogs OK: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

Bria, along with other family members, were dumped at the shelter. Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this case, they are lucky they were. The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives. Bria has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment. Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Bria will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is. Please inquire if Bria sounds like a good match for your family.

Merle adopted
MerleMerleMerle
DESCRIPTION:

Merle is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Merle is such a sweet,  handsome boy.  He is a little underweight, approximately 10 more lbs would be his ideal weight.  He is in a foster home and seems to be housebroken and crate trained.  He knows some basic commands such as sit, stay, paw and down.  He enjoys playing with toys and fetch.  As he settles more into his foster home his foster family will provide updates. 

Updates:
  • Merle has been in his foster home for a little over a week, so we know a few more details about him. Merle is a young, handsome boy who has definitely known the comforts of a home in the past. He is fully housebroken – he does well on a schedule and controls himself accordingly. Merle is also crate-trained and goes into his crate without resisting when asked to do so. He knows a couple commands (sit, down, stay, paw) and works for treats, toys or praise. He does not know to heel while walking, but is not difficult to walk on leash. Merle loves toys and will play for hours, usually wanting his human to join with him. He has great ball drive and will fetch/retrieve as long as you are willing to throw it. Merle is very athletic, with a smaller, slim build, and thus suitable for a lot of outdoor doggy activities, which he loves. Merle bonds deeply and quickly and can become protective of his space and his humans. This will need to be addressed with both training and a strong handler. He will also benefit greatly from a strong leader who will provide appropriate correction and training. Slow introductions to new people and animals seem to work best for him. Once he accepts a newcomer, he's very social. Merle is a great young dog, looking for his perfect home. Could that be yours??

DESCRIPTION:

Emilia along with other family members were dumped at a shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  Emilia is so very sweet, she enjoyed spending time with our volunteers being loved on.  Right now she is more comfortable with women, she can be skittish of men.  She did well in the car and at the vets for her exam.  Emilia has never been on a leash, she is working on that.  Training will help her build self confidence and form a bond with her new family.  Emilia deserves to know what a real family is, one that will love, care for and cherish her.

DESCRIPTION:

Oakley, along with other family members, were dumped at shelter. Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this case, they are lucky they were. The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  Oakley is very scared and confused and will need someone who can go slow with him.  Oakley   has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment. Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training,  Oakley   will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is. Please inquire if  Oakley   sounds like a good match for your family.

Updates:
  • Oakley is learning about being in a house with a family. It was obvious that he didn't know much about being inside. He was even scared to go through the door. Oakley is making great strides, and while loud noises and unexpected movement can startle him, he recovers quickly and is back to his happy self with a constantly wagging tale. He seems to get along just fine with the resident kids in the house, and hasn't seemed interested in the cat, though that could change once he is use to all of the new things in his life. He seems to enjoy having an older, calm canine companion to show him the ropes. In just a few days he has learned to do the stairs and is sitting on command. He is a smart puppy that is going to make a really great family dog.

Khaleesi is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence.

She is such a sweet girl with a quiet calmness about her.  She is settling into her foster home so please watch for updates.

Updates:
  • Sweet Khaleesi is settling into her foster home. She is a total sweetheart but afraid of everything, so her foster family is going very slow with her. Her foster family reports that she is a love and maybe the easiest foster they have ever had. Khaleesi is crate trained and uses her crate as a safe place to decompress. At this time, Khaleesi is considered a high flight risk and needs a quiet and calm household. We hope with time that she learns to trust again. If Khaleesi sounds like a match for your family, and you can have the patience to go slow to gain her trust, ask to meet her.

Murphy
MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

Murphy made his way to us from a shelter where he was a stray.  We have no past history for him, so we are getting to know him.  He requires a slower approach when meeting new people.   He is in need of training which will help him learn good manners, build his confidence and bond with his new family.

Updates:
  • Murphy is an interesting high energy pup. He’s likely had very little structure in his life to this point and is in need of a strong willed person or family to help guide his future and provide consistent and strong structure, especially with his indoor manners. He’s easy to leash up and walk, both on long and short leash. He’s loves car rides but seems unfamiliar with exiting or entering the car. He is unfamiliar with stairs but is learning to handle them quickly. He has a very high ball drive and will bring the ball back to his human as long as the ball is thrown again. Murphy loves his humans of all ages and wants to be with them always. He needs some work on his manners and is prone to countertop surfing. He also needs help learning that his crate is a safe place to stay. He takes treats gently and is very treat motivated. He is happy to work with anyone willing to give him a chance, could that be you?

  • Murphy is a sweet boy who takes time to get to know you.  Once he decides you're his friend, you are allowed the honor of bestowing belly rubs!  And then come the kisses!  He's great on leash, sitting at stops while in heel, knows basic obedience and follows his handler. He's VERY food driven, which is a very handy training tool.  He is going to need someone who can commit to the exercise and training he needs to keep his mind and body healthy.  He's such a handsome boy, do you think you have room for Murphy in your heart and home?

Mason is very scared and confused and will need someone who can go slow with him. Mason has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment. Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Mason will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is. Please inquire if Mason sounds like a good match for your family.

EviEviEviEviEviEviEviEvi
DESCRIPTION:

Evi was tied to a fence in a nearby park with a note on her neck that her owner is homeless and asked for someone to please give her a good home.  The shelter reached out to MAGSR to help Evi find a forever home.  It is reported that she is good with children and other dogs, but will Chase cats.  She is a friendly, sweet girl.  She does need basic obedience training which will teach her good manners and help the bond between her and her new family.  

Updates:
  • Evi is settling in to her foster home nicely and is learning how to behave in the home. Evi has a good bit of energy and loves to play – so much so that she plays very rough and will use her mouth during play. Due to Evi’s roughness and mouthiness during playing, Evi will not be placed in a home with young children. Evi will need a leader who is willing to work with her and burn her energy. If that leader is you, please ask to meet Evi.

GloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGlory
DESCRIPTION:

Glory came to us from a shelter so we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Glory is adjusting to living in a foster home, watch for updates.

Updates:
  • Unfortunately, Glory tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Glory is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for her entire treatment. Treatment is expensive but Glory is certainly worth the cost.  Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

  • Glory has started her heartworm treatment and is doing pretty well adjusting to the activity restrictions she needs to finish getting better. Glory is so sweet and loving to the volunteers who come to the kennel to get her out for some fresh air.  She is working on her sits, downs and stays and she takes treats gently. Glory would love to have someone to help her through the rest of her treatment and love her fur-ever - could that someone be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Titan's human dad took ill and can no longer care for him.  Titan has had some turmoil in his life and will need time to adjust to the changes in his life.  He lived with teenagers in his temporary home before being surrendered to us.  Stability, structure and training will help him tremendously, this also helps build a bond between the dog and family.  At only 2 years old he does have lots of energy, lots of mental and physical exercise will help burn that young dog energy.

Updates:
  • Titan a very handsome, long haired GSD with a lot to offer.  He can sit, down, stay, walks well on a leash, loads in the car easily and takes treats very gently.  He's fine being brushed, AND having mats removed which is very important with his beautiful long coat.  Titan is a wonderful boy who will make someone a loyal companion.

DESCRIPTION:

Dakota came to us from a shelter.  We have been told that she is a people person, enjoying being by your side and following you around.  She also adores children according to the report we received.  She has been around cats, but she seeks them out to play.  This may be too rough for some cats if not properly managed.  We are also told that she is good with dogs of all sizes.  Sadly it looks as though she was used for breeding then dumped.  She has no leash skills at this time, but this is something our volunteers will work on.  She requires training to teach her good manners.  She has energy as she is young and will require daily exercise.

StraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStrax
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Strax found himself in a shelter when his family dumped him there.  The shelter staff love him very much and took very good care of him.  Strax has some skin issues which we are having looked into by a vet.  We are not sure if it's allergies to food, environmental or if it's something else.  His food has been changed to a grain free and he's on fish oil, it will take some time to see if this helps.  Strax lived with children in his previous home, he was cat tested at the shelter and he did well so he may be able to live in a home with cats.  He is such a well mannered, even keeled boy.  He takes everything in stride, welcomes all people he meets and will play bow when introduced to other dogs.  Strax seems to be an overall well balanced boy who would fit well into anyone's life.

Updates:
  • Strax is a very laid back boy, easy to walk, wants to be around you all the time, loves people, wants to meet everybody, good with other dogs, is crate trained, loves ice cubes. Bottom line, Strax is amazing! His foster parents cannot go to the refrigerator without him running up and looking at the freezer for his ice cube. Strax thrives on making his humans happy. His foster parents call him their dream dog because he is so easy and dedicated. Strax LOVES his donated Nylabone as much as we love Strax!  Strax would be an amazing family dog in his furever home. Does Strax sound like the perfect fit for you? If so, ask to meet him.

Oso
OsoOsoOsoRexRexRexRexRexRexRexOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOso
DESCRIPTION:

Oso a very handsome, big boy weighing in at 105 lbs.  Although he is large, he is a gentle giant.  Oso's favorite activity is to play with balls, the more balls the better, yes even soccer and basketball size balls.  It is imperative that all dogs go through obedience training and Oso is not exception.  With a dog of this size you want to have good manners, this will make walking him on a leash much more enjoyable. 

Unfortunately Oso was returned to us.  Family members moved into his home, after he had lived there over a year, with small dogs that Oso did not get along with, so he got the boot.  He was fine with the neighbors female GSD.  He came back to us over weight so he has been put on diet, that along with exercise he should be down a good weight in no time.  

Updates:
  • Oso sure does LOVE balls, all sizes, squeaky and otherwise, this boy goes nuts for them!  He's a very calm, loving sweetheart who will be a great companion on walks or just hanging around.  He's easy on the leash, takes treats gently, sits nicely for brushing and knows basic commands.  A training class will help with bonding to this honey of a dog, once complete you will have a wonderful friend.  Just look at that smile, with his size and demeanor, he's sure to impress!

  • Oso has been a very good boy in his foster home and very respectful. Oso knows sit and stay until he gets his release command before he goes for his food and he is working on and getting better about taking treats gently. Oso loves belly rubs and loves being petted on the head and around the ears (he's a real fan of shoulder massages). Oso will give his human kisses. Oso is working on his leash manners and after walking a bit, will settle into a nice heel. Oso is a very kind and gentle soul. If Oso sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet him. 

  • Oso is settling into his new foster home more day by day. He know basic commands such as sit and down. With a strong leader, he walks well on a leash. Oso is completely house broken and has had no accidents in the house although he doesn't know which door to go to because he hasn't been in his new foster home long enough to know. Oso loves being pet and let's you know he wants attention. He is well behaved in his crate when he can't hear or see anyone. When he knows his humans are around, he wants to be with them. Oso loves being in his foster home but he would love a furever home instead.

DESCRIPTION:

Hi  friends, my name is Sarge and I am interviewing prosepctive forever families. Let me explain my situation and get you up to speed. I managed to get myself in quite a pickle as I landed myself in local  shelter as a stray. I am not really sure what a stray is but I will figure that out later.  The accommodations were not bad. They were really nice to me and I did get a warm bed and two squares a day! It was kind of rough though because I was use to em... certain luxeries. I was at this place for about a month when they told me my foster family was coming to pick me up and bring me home! They are amazing and I am really living it up here wth them but foster mean temporary until my perfect home presents itself. They told me I can stay as long as I need to which makes me so happy. I even heard them say they were taking me to acupuncture this weekend so I am hoping that is some sort of massage and they provide treats! I will update later on how that goes.. So dont worry, I am in a good place as I interview

So back to my requirements.. you know a senior gentleman has certain needs and things we become accustomed to. I like a soft orthopedic bed with a blanky, I demand regular head and belly scratches, and daily treats. And let's be clear, I DONT enjoy steps and can only get up or down one or two steps because I sustained a bad pelvic injury in my younger days that never healed correctly so I only get around on three legs. My back leg is pretty useless although it does help to steady me when begging at the table... I have learned to compensate for my injury and do still enjoy playing and romping in the yard. My new family will need to provide some pain meds and supplements to help keep me as pain free as possible. Here is a positive.. I am totally house broken but do require to be let out every few hours as in my old age I just can't hold it as long as when I was a young buck.. My favorite past time aside from eating is sleeping because don't forget I am a senior boy and require several naps.. I am the most laid back guy that you will ever meet! I like my doggie friends big and small! I am just an all around great companion and just want a person to call my own. I will follow you around and lay at your feet! If you feel you could be my forever family and provide for my senior needs please apply above! Love Sarge

Autumn
AutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumn is fearless when playing tug-o-war!Autumn
DESCRIPTION:

Autumn cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little girl, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses.  Autumn has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment.  Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Autumn will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is.  Please inquire if Autumn sounds like a good match for your family.

Updates:
  • Autumn is a loving, fiesty, high energy puppy.  She's getting along great with her foster brothers and sister.  She enjoys squeaky toys, kongs, nylabones, tennis shoe inserts, tennis shoe strings, charging cords - did we mention she was a puppy?  She is learning "no" quickly, sits nicely for treats and settles after minimal protest in the crate for the night.  With the proper training that every dog needs, she's going to make someone a wonderful companion!

  • Autumn is doing well learning the manners she had not been taught during her rough start to life. Autumn sits for treats and also before she is fed. She settles in her crate for some quiet time and at night for bed. She loves toys of any kind, including balls, stuffed toys, nylabones - and still has a love of shoes, but now knows 'leave it' so drops them when told. Autumn gets along well with her foster brothers and sister, as long as they're ready to play!  Autumn is feisty and appears to want to be the dominant one. Autumn's fosters are still working on the no teeth rule with her, as she gets pretty excited getting out of her crate. Ask to meet Autumn and you won't be disappointed.

DESCRIPTION:

Luna along with other family members were dumped at shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  When Luna arrived we noticed she has lazy eyes and was uncoordinated, along with a lump on her head.  The vet did a thorough exam, Luna's eye sight seems fine, but the vet feels that she may have suffered from head trauma which caused the lump and the unsteadiness.  She may or may not improve with time.  With all of that aside she is a beautiful, playful and curious puppy.  She deserves a special family who sees the beauty she is.  Please be prepared for a puppy as they are time consuming, they need training, socialization, lots of exercise and a lifetime of love and care.  Yes, puppies chew things they shouldn't, they get into things, they have potty accidents and they have lots of energy.

Updates:
  • Luna is doing very well in her foster home. Luna pounces everywhere and loves to play with her foster brother and gets along well with the other resident dogs as well, who are all much bigger than she is. Luna's foster parents are teaching her how to do steps in the home and she's working hard to master them. Luna is food motivated, incredibly affectionate and loves everyone - she loves to snuggle and give licks and kisses. If Luna sounds like a good fit for your family, please ask to meet this sweet girl.

DESCRIPTION:

Astro came to us an owner surrender.  This is a perfect example why you do not get a child a dog and expect them to be the caregiver.  The child, after 3 weeks no longer was interested in caring for him, even though he promised he would.  The parent did not have time, nor the knowledge to care for a GSD puppy.  Astro did not have training and was doing your typical puppy behaviors...chewing, jumping, nipping.  Without structure, guidance and training to teach good manners his puppy behaviors continued as no one taught him otherwise.  Astro is now in the care of a loving foster learning acceptable behaviors, good manners, getting lots of exercise and structure.  Astro is a sweet boy, he will need a family to continue to provide him with training and structure, along with positive reinforcement.

Amber
AmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmber
DESCRIPTION:

Amber was surrendered to us as she was not getting along with the other resident female dog.  Amber likes to be the alpha, so she would do better with a non dominant dog.  She has been around children and did well.  She also did well with a visiting a larger laid back dog, although she does play rough.  As you can imagine her world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  We are giving her time to settle in so that we can get to know her better.

Updates:
  • Amber is a well mannered girl who does well walking on a leash or just sitting at your feet. Regardless of what you're doing, she is happy, so long as she with you. She is a serious pup, that is reserved around strangers. Once you've earned her trust she's a very warm and loving dog. Amber isn't the dog that's going to jump and bark to show her affection. She's the dog that walks up, rubs up against your leg, then sits down and leans on you to accept your calm affection. Amber can sit and stay, but is still working on down. This is a very well mannered lady that will make someone a wonderful companion!

DESCRIPTION:

Sophia along with other family members were dumped at shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  Sophia has a secondary skin infection caused by the flea infestation.  She is currently on antibiotics.  She is so very sweet, she enjoyed spending time with our volunteers being loved on.  She did well in the car and at the vets for her exam.  Sophia deserves to know what a real family is, one that will love, care for and cherish her.

Updates:
  • Sophia has settled nicely into her foster home. It is a big transition from being outside all of the time to being in a home with a family. When Sophia first arrived, she sat by the door expecting to be put outside. Over time, she is understanding that inside with her people is a good place to be. She sleeps in her crate without whining or crying unless she needs to go out. Sophia loves treats and takes them very gently even from the resident children. She also loves walks but is a little hesitant of things she doesn't know. Sophia is getting medicated baths a few times a week to help clear up some skin issues she currently has from her past neglect before MAGSR. But, Sophia is a trooper and takes everything in stride. If you're looking for a dog that will bond to you for life, Sophia is the girl for you!

RockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRocky
DESCRIPTION:

Rocky was an owner surrender as his person had no time for him.  It is so important when taking on the responsibility of a pet that you have the time and patience to work with.  Rocky is a 6 month old untrained big puppy.  He was not taught any manners, nor were his puppy behaviors addressed.  He will jump on people, he is mouthy, will chew things he shouldn't and have accidents in the house.  He is in need a good training program and a family that will teach him acceptable behavior.  Socializing him with lots of people and other dogs is critical, as it is with all dogs.  Due to his lack of manners we will not place him in a home with very young children.  He will need a strong leader who is willing to work with him and burn off his high puppy energy.  Prior puppy GSD experience is required.

Updates:
  • Rocky has made good progress with socialization and rules in his foster home. He goes for walks with the resident GSD several times a day and passes many other unruly dogs in the community and he is learning to be on his best behavior and waits in a sit until they pass. Rocky is learning he does not have to be jealous of other dogs and getting attention and by waiting patiently for his turn, he gets a lot of love and attention. Rocky is working on sit, place and heel and is learning quickly. Rocky is nervous meeting people and doesn't like people approaching him until he's ready to meet them. Rocky is being desensitized to random objects around the house like trash cans, recycle bins and yard signs - all things that when initially in his foster home, freaked him out. Rocky is an insecure boy that needs confidence that everything isn't going to hurt him. He is learning to trust his foster mom and his loving personality is coming out towards her and he sits at her feet whenever he can. It will take time for Rocky to build trust with his human - patience, commitment and training is a must with Rocky. If Rocky sounds like a good fit for your household, please ask to meet him.
