Note: Dogs are pack animals and do not do well away from other members of their pack. The adopter is the alpha member of the pack, and the dog or puppy needs as much one-on-one contact with the alpha as possible. For this reason, all Route 66 Rescue Inc. dogs are adopted to inside homes only. They must be on leash, or inside a secure fence when outside, and not left outside alone when no one is home. Invisible fencing does not qualify as protection since other animals and strangers have access to the dog. The dogs must be returned to Route 66 Rescue, Inc. if ever given up by the adopter. Thank you for understanding we want only the best for the dogs you give a forever home.
Kramer is a very lovable 6 yr. old red and white Heeler mix boy that weighs 55 lbs. He is housebroken and knows the sit, down, and shake commands. Kramer walks on a leash, but sometimes he gets excited and tends to pull. However, he is very smart and is easily trained. Kramer would be ok with one other dog. He tolerates the small dogs but he wants to be the Alpha. Kramer would do well in a family with older kids, but not with cats.
Kramer has his very own Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/kramerroute66rescue/ Here you can see some of his training tricks, how he behaves, and the things he enjoys!
Kramer is a sweet, loving dog but he is very strong and needs to play. He can jump a 4 foot fence from standing still and can climb a 6 foot fence if he so desires. He will not try to go over a top-wired privacy fence.
Kramer loves to do zoomies when he first comes inside but then he settles right now and sleeps or entertains himself with his toys. He will not destroy the house or mess in the house. He loves a Kong especially if it is filled with peanut butter. He loves bones safe for Pets. They are hip bones and different things.....the Jones brand is suggested.
His foster says: Kramer's biggest issues are he jumps fences, he doesn't meet new dogs well and he plays rough, he pulls on his leash and he jumps on people. He should not be left alone with another strong male as he will challenge him and they may fight.
His biggest strengths are his sweetness, his willingness to train (he loves it), he loves to cuddle and he doesn't chew or dig or tear things up, he is fully potty trained....he also loves the car but he should be tethered as he will jump all over. He loves the window down and calms down if he can stick his head out.....again, must be tethered.
