found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Orin is a 5-6 year old AmStaff cross, possibly with Dogo. He is a very powerful dog and will require a responsible owner. Orin was originally transferred to us from a shelter in BC as he was very stressed and suffering from 'happy tail.' This is when a dog continuously wags his or her tail against the walls of the kennel, causing it to split open. He was adopted a couple of years ago, but came back to us recently when his owners split up and could no longer care for him and his fur-brother, Simba (previously adopted).
Orin is good with most other dogs, but can be selective, and tends to be a rough player. Orin generally does better with females, but can co-exist with a laid-back male dog depending on the individual dog. He gets along great with small dogs and tends to just ignore them. He is a bit clumsy though, so needs to be supervised when he is excited, as he will sometime run right over top of the little guys. Orin is looking for a home preferably without cats. He did live in a home with cats in the past, but tends to chase them, so this would also depend highly on the temperament of the cat(s). Orin requires daily exercise and would benefit from having a fenced yard for play sessions between his structured walks. Orin gets along great with all people, big and small, and would love a home with children. Because of his size and exuberance, however, he should go to a home with kids at least 8+ years, as he tends to bulldoze the little ones over sometimes.
Orin has a very strong sit and down, and redirects to his handler easily. He likes to pull on his leash and currently walks on an Easy Walk front-clip harness. He does sleep im a crate, but will get out of a wire one, so needs a hard-sided crate. Orin is the most loving dog and would love an owner who will snuggle with him and give him regular belly rubs. He also smiles when he is excited to see you. He does tend to jump up when excited, so his new owner will have to continue to reinforce alternate behaviors. Orin also has a beautiful 'smile' and tends to show it off most when his people first walk in the door.
Orin will only be adopted to a home committed to using rewards-based, force-free training: this means no choke chains, pinch collars, shock collars, or dominance-based training methods.
Orin is neutered, vaccinated, flea-treated, dewormed, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $350. If you are interested in adopting Orin, please submit an adoption application at http://animalrescueandoutreach.com/adoption-application.
