Like any newly adopted dog, there is a need to allow your new furry companion time
to decompress in your home, learn the routine, and get to know you and establish a
bond. On the two times that Buddy was adopted and returned, he was not given the time
or space to acquaint himself with his new life and sadly bit a family member within
the first day of being home. Buddy is cautious upon meeting new people but quickly
warms up to you. He likes to show off his “sit, paw, and down” and takes
treats ever so gently. Buddy chooses the dogs he likes to hang with as not all are
his cup of tea but enjoys their companionship when he does. Buddy needs a family that
will give him time to adjust to his new home and have experience with “trading
up” to work with toy/treat possession. Dogs like Buddy take a little more understanding
to build a bond but when the connection is made, the reward is immeasurable.
This dog requires an adopter to come out to the rescue three times in order to build up trust and form a bond with this dog before going home. Please talk to your adoption coordinator regarding the behaviors we have been working with this particular dog and the training techniques we have seen improvement with. We will also need the name and number of the trainer you plan on using before they will go home.
