A somewhat wary yet people-oriented guy, Raz would love a trustworthy family who sets the rules, routine and structured environment in the home, which will provide a feeling of safety and security permitting him to blossom as a fun, playful, affectionate member of the gang. A total sweetheart, but a bit unsure what to expect from people, Raz responds well to direction, kindly treatment and being allowed a respectful minute to size up new situations. He is searching for leadership, and requires a responsible and strong owner with a firm---but never harsh--- approach who sets behavioral limitations, as well as permissions. This devoted canine boy will form a deep bond with caring owners who reciprocate the warmth and loyalty he offers. Attentive and eager-to-please, he absolutely thrives with warm words of praise for a job well-done…he won’t turn down many treats either!
Calm and friendly once he is comfortably sure everyone and everything is safe, Raz is interested in his environment and enjoys opportunities to learn. Training and Socialization classes are highly recommended and would help increase Raz’s social confidence, while reinforcing good canine manners. Attending class together is also an excellent way to establish a trust bond with Raz. In addition, an owner who provides on-going socialization opportunities--- providing exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences and chances to master new activities and situations--- helps ensure that Raz progresses as a well-rounded dog who becomes increasingly more confident and outgoing. Like all dogs, Raz needs regular mental stimulation and physical activity to be at his happiest and healthiest. Frequent leashed walks, shared play with family members and solo romps in a secure yard should suffice for his moderate exercise needs.
Raz 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, we recommend a meet-n-greet with any housemate dogs to determine compatibility prior to adoption. Direct interaction with cats is unknown and cannot be assessed at the shelter at this time.

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.
