Meet beautiful Shelby … our black boxer … what a great dog! We spent the day with her last Saturday at Hardesty Park and she was so tolerant of everything going on around her. She loved everyone that was willing to give her attention and she behaved beautifully. One observation I made was that she wants to be top dog in the presence of another. After 6 hours in the park we all were amazed that she did not bark once – not once! She rested in the grass comfortably and she was very tolerant with all of the people and pets walking around her. Don’t delay … this great dog wants to go 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!
