Meet Fisher!! If Fisher could talk, we are pretty sure he would be making a living as a stand-up comedian. Fisher is a highly intelligent guy with a wisdom beyond his 6+ dog years. And oh, what a sense of humor!! Fisher can be silly and goofy and he keeps his foster mom constantly entertained with his shenanigans. Foster mom says Fisher keeps her on her toes, but not in a bad way, lol. Fisher is a funny guy!! Fisher survived a whole life of neglect and living in deplorable conditions, but you would never know that now. Fisher is a survivor and despite his tragic past, he still loves people. When I say Fisher loves people... I mean he REALLY loves his people!! Fisher is highly intuitive and we believe he can quickly realize the difference between good people and bad people or ill intentions. Fisher is not aggressive, but he is certainly wary of sketchy people... Fisher also recognizes when someone is good to him. Fisher bonds deeply with people who are good to him, and he will be a fiercely loyal companion for the right person or family. Fisher thrives on companionship!! Due to his intelligence, we believe Fisher will do best with an experienced, confident handler who can truly tap into his potential. We believe Fisher will do great as a family pet, but we also believe that Fisher will bond most deeply with his one, primary person. Fisher absolutely adores his foster mom and is a velcro dog. He recognizes when foster mom is not feeling well and comforts her with kisses and couch cuddles. Fisher looks to his foster mom for guidance and he takes comfort in her presence during a scary thunderstorm. Fisher also loves, loves, loves his toys and he is quite the toy hoarder. Fisher does fantastic with all dogs... big and small, and he is very playful with other dogs. We do think that Fisher would do best in a home with no cats and we also feel he would do best in a home with no young/small children due to his size and silly antics.
