found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Update 4/6/08 - Lyric is wonderful with everyone he meets. We recently had him at an event where he met kids of all ages and dogs of all sizes, and was fine with everyone. Now that he's been in his foster home for a month, he has really settled in. He rarely pushes us any more, but when he does having him sit immediately stops the behavior. Lyric plays wonderfully with our male Dane. We do crate Lyric when we are not home. Because he has a mild case of separation anxiety, he will shred any blanket or dog bed we leave in the crate.
Update 4/13/08 - We have noticed that Lyric has an occasional mild limp in his right front leg (it's mild enough that most people don't even see it). After an appointment with the vet and some x-rays, he has been diagnosed with a mild case of OCD. While this does not require surgery at this point, it may in the future. Lyric has continued to be a sweet boy. He will walk up to you, sit down and wait for you to pet him. He was even great with the vet and the techs during his vet visit.
Update 5/11/08 - Lyric has continued to do well. We have not seem him limp in at least 3 weeks. He is always walking up to you and sitting pretty waiting for pets. He also loves to snuggle and will cuddle up next to you on the couch. However, Lyric still needs reminders that he is not in charge.
Update 5/31/08 - Lyric has continued to settle in to his foster home. We have not seen him limp in over a month. He is always walking up to you and sitting pretty waiting for pets. He also loves to snuggle and will cuddle up next to you on the couch. However, Lyric still needs reminders that he is not in charge and sometimes get a bit rough in play with the other Dane in the home. Usually just making him sit or squirting him with a water gun will redirect his energy.
Update 7/6/08 - In the 4 short months that Lyric has been with us he has turned into a wonderful dog. We rarely have to correct him on anything anymore - other than counter surfing. He is a snuggly, cuddly boy that is also a ton of fun. He loves to play with toys and it's a blast to watch him throw and chase his Kong. Lyric has a nightly ritual where Lyric lays with his head in his foster Dad's lap. He will snuggle up close to you any opportunity that he has. Lyric does still have one challenge that we are working on. He does not do well when first meeting strangers around his house or neighborhood. We believe that Lyric will resort to many of his old behaviors when he moves to his adoptive home, however we have seen that they can be overcome with some patience and training.
