Requirements: The adopter must understand Reggies resource guarding and handling issues and understand how to work with this behavior. A minimum of 7 visits to the shelter is required where you will spend time with him, the staff who works the closest with him, and the Director of Enrichment and Behavior and/or our Behaviorist. This requirement is important to ensure that Reggie has the safest and most successful adoption possible. It is crucial to understand the correct way of handling this behavior to avoid any situations where a bite may happen. Reggie will need continued behavior modification which could ultimately help him learn to feel comfortable with handling.
I'm Reggie and I have special needs because I'm going blind. I have cataracts and see very poorly. I am on eye drops twice a day and other pills for my eye and joint health. Because of my poor eye sight I should not be placed in a home with other pets or kids because they might startle me. I'm a very happy go lucky boy in spite of my condition. I just love being pet and don't forget belly rubs. I enjoy my daily walks and am a good walker even though I'm a big strong boy. I would love to have a home of my own and if you think you could take care of me please come up and visit!
If you are interested in Reggie and meet the requirements and are willing to take the time to get to know him please contact Animal Care Sanctuary at 570-596-2200
