My name is Sargent and I am a good-looking boy.  I am tall, lean and an energy machine.  I envision a life with a runner, hiker or a very active family and containment will be important to keep me safe until I mature.  Hey … you may as well know it upfront … I am excited about life and I need a few manners.  With your help I will learn quickly and become the dog that I was born to be.  Please remember when coming to meet me at the shelter that I will show best once taken to a private room.  In fact, many of my friends down here do too.  After all, these smaller kennels don’t allow for a good evaluation of the deserving dogs that we are.  Don’t delay … please take me home today.  I am anxious to begin my life with you – and your friends and family too!  You can see me at 250 Opportunity Parkway, Akron, OH  44308 or Contact Georjette Thomas at Pay It Forward For Pets at 330.760.0763 for information.  Visit  www.payitforwardforpets.org.

His story is maddening ... it shouldn't happen ... but his nervous behavior is an example of the lack of security and neglect he experienced in his home. Tox was dropped off by his owner because he was inconvenient to the family's new living arrangements. Because of his LARGE size, they decided to keep the smaller, newer dog that would work better for their newest lifestyle. Tox has come a long way in dealing with the shelter environment and has learned to tolerate a lot. He is a volunteer favorite and Randy, his handler, really wants to see him go home. Because of his size, this boy is for the person that wants a big presence in their home and wants to help a dog continue to grow his confidence. He’s been there awhile because he doesn’t show well. He’s non-demonstrative and always appears concerned but take him out of his kennel and he is a big agreeable boy! Don’t delay … please give Tox a home today!

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!
