Sherman's Story...
Meet Sherman, a year old, male wire-haired terrier mix. He was found in the woods, with his brother, Rusty, who’s also up for adoption. Sherman is a loving, happy dog with alert eyes, handsome whiskers, and great personality. He loves to be petted and cuddled. A medium sized boy with a coarse but shiny black and tan double coat, he has dark lively eyes, tan eyebrows, a shortish muzzle with tan whiskers, black nose and floppy ears. Sherman is active, agile, and fast. Sherman is a good blend of both breeds - a medium sized, low shedding dog that is comfortable in any setting - rural, urban, apartment or house, but needs regular exercise. But as with both breeds - he can be stubborn and will need a firm hand until he is fully trained. He stands knee high on an average adult, and is healthy and quite sturdy.

Sherman is more dominant than his brother Rusty, but he also loves to play with the others dogs, and runs all over the yard with them. He is young so still displays puppy behaviour, rarely forgets housebreaking rules, and doesn’t care for the leash, although he is learning well and quickly. Sherman's temperament is quiet and calm and when he's played out, he is quite happy laying and playing on his bed while his foster mom works. He loves toys and always had one close by. Sherman is not a barker, but does like to mumble when he wants your attention. He is housebroken and learning to walk on a leash. He is obedient and wants to please. We have no idea how he is with cats or very young children. He is neutered and up to date on shots.

Anyone wanting to adopt a dog from the RARFS is expected to fill out an adoption application, provide references, sign an adoption contract, agree to a home visit, and finally to pay and adoption fee. Families who rent must provide a letter from their landlord stating that they are allowed to have a dog. Once the application is received, references checked, and a home visit completed, families can take their new family member home. We have a no questions asked return policy should a dog be returned.

Sherman’s adoption fee is $75. We prefer that families come and pick up their new family member, but a licensed pet transport is available. Should we need to transport Sherman to his new home, you will need to pay $150 to the transport company. For more information on Sherman, please contact Louise Vande Wiele at louisevdew@gmail.com
