Who can resist this sweet boy? Palmer came to us in pretty bad shape. We are not sure what happened but Palmer was found as a stray by animal services along with his three siblings. Animal Services suspected that the puppies had been dumped. Palmer's sibling were happy and healthy but Palmer could not walk and was deaf. Palmer's siblings were successfully adopted out by Animal Services but they needed help with this special needs puppy. They reached out to us and we just couldn't say no to his cute face and sweet demeanor. 

Our vet could not find any reason why Palmer should not be able to walk. A few days after Palmer's arrival, with a bit of help, he was standing on all fours. He was a bit clumsy in the beginning but was able to get himself around. Within a few weeks he was running and playing with other dogs. Palmer just needed a bit of love and attention. 

Palmer adores other dogs and would be best suited for a home that already has another dog. He is a bit shy of strangers but does warm up quickly with the proper introduction. Having another dog with him gives him confidence. Palmer is very energetic and would do best with a dog with a similar energy level. 

Palmer is a little more difficult than most dogs to train due to his inability to hear. There are different methods of training for dogs with this type of disability. Palmer has learned some hand commands and is very attentive of his people. He will definitely make someone a fantastic dog if you are willing to put the effort in to him.

About Satchel's Last Resort

About Our Shelter...

At Satchel's Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet.

Each dog that comes to Satchel’s has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel's) and guests (adoptable dogs at Satchel's for a temporary stay) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind. Most important to us -- we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them.

Trainers work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals. We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own.

At Satchel’s Last Resort, we believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people. Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.
