HERO NEEDS A HERO! He has been in kennel free boarding for too long because his foster was no longer foster and his original rescuer is no longer rescuing. A forever foster (but even better - an adopter) with large-breed experience is Hero's dream! We supply food, crate and other necessary items for our fosters & cover vetting at our vets.
Hero came to us from Riverside Shelter where he was on the euthanasia list for his age. They also noted he had trouble walking. We expected to pick up a weak old guy with hip issues, but instead we picked up a young-at-heart guy who thinks he’s still a young Buck! :) He has spent several months with our trainer who was amazed at his energy level. The only way you can tell his age - his beautiful grey mask and worn, rough pads on his backside. :( Other than that, he has no idea he’s a mature gentleman. We are not sure of his breed but Shepherd/Boxer/Pointer/Pitbull have all been guessed as possible mixes. He is a beautiful, shiny, dark-chocolate brindle.
He does best with submissive dogs. We don’t know how he is with cats. Because he is strong and can be a bit nervous in new situations, we recommend a home with no kids.
Can you give an old guy the home or forever-foster he so deserves?
