Just look at those soulful eyes. Plain and simple, Weaver craves a connection to people. He yearns to bond and is searching for that person or family who is worthy of his trust. We can’t know for sure why this sweet guy is so wary and hesitant, but it does appear he’s had a rough start in life---harsh treatment somewhere along the way. His confidence has been shattered, and yet, Weaver, unsure as he may be right now, bravely is starting to settle in and looking to trust humans again. No doubt, with patient direction, follow-through, and positive experiences, this little guy will become increasingly more confident and outgoing.
Some canines tolerate the uncertainty of shelter life more than others. Weaver just finds it difficult and disorienting. Like all dogs, he craves routine and structure which provide a measure of security; life isn’t quite as scary when you know what to expect. Weaver relaxes and shows more confidence outside the shelter environment. When outdoors on a leash he is extremely well-mannered, and he enjoys the time and attention; he’s also obedient and eager to please when he knows what is being asked of him.
This loyal young dog has experienced more than his share of people letting him down, and he’s ready for a new chapter in life. Weaver is looking for the right family to embrace him as part of their own; he is a loving dog who will form a deep bond with responsible, compassionate owners who provide calm, consistent leadership and lavish him with the warm affection, patient guidance, and TLC he so craves and deserves.
The teaching/learning exchange between owner and dog can be a catalyst for deep-bonding, and in a sweet and highly sensitive soul such as Weaver, it is even more so. Reserved and uncertain as to what to expect right now, Weaver is nonetheless open-to-trusting and wholly sincere too; we have no doubt, Weaver will become increasingly more confident, ultimately, blossoming into a happy and faithfully devoted canine family member for the people who open their hearts and home to him.
Weaver is best suited as an indoor pet and companion for a home with a calm, low-active to moderately-active lifestyle. As with all dogs, a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs will be necessary to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be fully assessed at the shelter at this time.
Come meet Weaver at Monroe County Animal Control located at 911 S. Raisinville Rd, Monroe, MI (just south of the fairgrounds). Kennel hours are Tuesday - Friday, 11:00 am - 3:30 pm; Saturday, 11:00 am - 2:30 pm; closed Sunday, Monday, and National Holidays.
For more information you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the shelter during business hours at 734-240-3125.
Monroe SPCA also offers microchips for dogs and cats adopted from Monroe County Animal Control for a fee of $15.00 at the time of adoption. Microchips are implanted between the dog’s shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. Microchips are registered to Monroe SPCA with adopters adding “new owner” information after adoption. If the dog is ever lost and slips his or her collar and tags, the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact when the dog is scanned for a microchip.
Even if you cannot adopt at this time, please consider making a donation to Monroe SPCA so we may continue saving, protecting, and improving the lives of homeless animals in Monroe County.
In addition to providing emergency medical treatment to animals who need it, Monroe SPCA, now, provides every dog at Monroe County Animal Control with basic preventative health care which includes flea preventative, deworming(s), DHPP vaccine and booster, and Heartworm Testing. If a dog tests positive for Heartworm, Monroe SPCA also provides that dog with Heartworm treatment. Dogs adoptable through Monroe County Animal Control have no adoption fee at this time (adopter’s pay a $10.00 application fee and $25.00 sterilization deposit payable to the County of Monroe); this Monroe SPCA Operational Support Program at Monroe County Animal Control is funded solely by monetary donations. We do not receive government funding, and we are not affiliated with or funded by Monroe County Animal Control, the HSUS, the ASPCA, or any other humane organization. Monroe SPCA is a 501c.3 non-profit organization, and we rely on the financial support and generosity of individuals and businesses in our community to conduct our daily operations and help animals. All donations to Monroe SPCA are tax-deductible.
