Pluto was moved to our Bridge facility where he became fast friends with Maggie May, a female pitbull. They romped and played and had a great time. Kathy and Richard, our two experienced dog trainers there, worked with Pluto. Here is their feedback.

from Kathy, July 14
Pluto seems to be a young dog, somewhere under a year. He has shown no aggressive tendencies toward Maggie or Kadie. We still have to try him with a male, but so far so good as we have not had to make any corrections at all with him. (Upon arrival, Pluto was aged at 3-4 years, so I'm not sure where the discrepancy here is and why Kathy thinks he is under a year old. I think she may be judging him by his playful behavior.)

from Kathy, July 16
Pluto was let out today with an older pit who has been retrained so that he does not fight. The two males did their "ego, stiff-legged waltz and then locked legs". Richard said "No" and they both trotted off. With anyone who can be calm and just say "No" I think Pluto will be okay. If the people freak out and start yelling or hollering, I think he will either feed off the drama and start fighting, or slink away in confusion. From Kathy's notes on July 16, it's clear that Pluto has been without someone to guide him. He needs a home with a family to love him and give him direction. He's a sweet boy. He has responded well to Kathy and Richard in a short time
3-4 years

About Darlington County Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

Darlington County Humane Society is dedicated to helping homeless and forgotten pets find new loving homes! The shelter takes in thousands of homeless pets a year, and tries to find homes for them before their euthanasia dates. Due to the high volume of intakes, small shelter, and lack of funds the Darlington County Shelter is forced to be a kill shelter. We try our best to adopt out as many fur-babies as we can to avoid this! We continue to work on educating the community, and saving the the homeless animals of our county!
