George came into rescue not knowing any of the joys of being a dog. Everything is new to him. His new foster brothers and sisters are showing him the ropes but there's a lot to learn, but he is very smart boy. Already he has developed a friendship with one of the other dogs and follows him everywhere; learning to use the dog door, going potty outside and peeing on trees! What a life for a dog. After his dental he was much more relaxed and has been seeking out petting and loving. Yesterday he looked at me and wagged his tail. George has a new purpose in life....to be loved by his own human family.
Notes from foster mom: George exhibits signs of being a "puppy mill" dog meaning he has some odd behaviors that may be life-long. He absolutely cannot tolerate being crated for any length of time. I put him in a crate at night but he wakes up in the night and will bark to be let out. He then will sleep on my heated sun room. He seems to prefer dogs over people and will probably always need the company of dogs preferably one that is well trained to show George how things are to be done. My suggestion for a future home is for the family to be very kind, loving and patient, experienced in working with socializing a dog like George and have a fenced yard.
Wouldn't you love to be the family taking this journey with him discovering a whole new joyous world?
