It is so sad, but Sargie continues to sit in boarding. He has been there for over a year now. It breaks our heart that he is still sitting in boarding and does not have a foster fur-fur-ever home yet.
Sargie was born into our rescue. At the age of 8 weeks Sargie ended up with Parvo due to cross contamination by his foster mom going to a shelter. Sargie made a full recovery and adopted out when he was 4 months old. Sadly, three years later his owners divorced and neither one of them wanted Sargie any longer. We did not have any open fosters so Sargie ended up in boarding. However he did find a wonderful foster. She fostered Sargie for just over six months. We knew she was a short term foster, as she was moving out of state. She could not take Sargie and now he is back in boarding. Sargie is a lover and cuddler. He is VERY food motivated and loves to please his handler. Sargie loves to go on long walks, runs, or hikes. He loves the water and the car. Sargie has amazing leash manners but is a bit hyper at first due to being in a kennel for several months. Sadly, Sargie received very little socialization and training in the 3 years he was living with his adoptive family. Sargie has a lot of fear issues that we are working on. He needs a foster family that will work with us and our trainer to help him overcome his fear of new people. He needs a foster that has no other pets and with children over the age of 12. Sargie has begun training in our facility with their personal trainer and he is also on medication to help him get through this. This will continue in his foster or fur-ever home as well.
Sargie is such a good boy and does not deserve to be in boarding...but until we find proper foster placement, this is our only way to keep him safe. Without us, he would have been taken to and have already been put down. It is the sad reality of today's world. We are praying we can find a foster for him quickly...to bring the joy back in to his heart.
