Meet, Ranier, this week’s dog …
What are people thinking??? Dropped off at the shelter as a senior! Unbelievable! I'm a good boy and I have the typical appeal that all deserving dogs have ... soft fur, sweet eyes, irresistible ears and because of my unfortunate present state, some very insecure behavior :). Where are my people? Where are my toys? Hey, you may as well know it up front ... I'm nervous and concerned for my future. In fact, at this point I lack a bit of confidence. You see ... I was once in a house and use to a couch. No middle aged or senior dog should have to find themselves in a shelter in their golden days.
Note: Please keep in mind that all adoptable pets need time to decompress once they enter a home. For some it will happen quickly and for others it might take a few weeks. You'll want to be understanding of what they have been through and their level of insecurity. We ask that you treat all of them as if they were an 8 week old puppy. Assume they know nothing and begin at step one. You'll soon know what they are capable of and what behaviors you will need to "kindly" work on with your new family member. It's called commitment! And, that's what these pets want more than anything!
*We recommend that if you have other dogs to bring them to meet your potential new dog.
