Trigger was a sweetie form the moment we met him, even on his own turf he had no hesitations to meet us, strangers to him. The image will never leave us of his wagging tail on his wounded battered body, yet all he wanted was to make friends. From that moment until the present, Triggers temperament has remained the same, a happy, joyful guy. Trigger is happy as a clam here at the shelter, the smallest things we take for granted in our own dog's lives, are what Trigger lives for now each and every day. Trigger has a room set up outside of our main kennels, where he has the King suite of accommodations. Trigger enjoys coming in each morning to find what new soft comfy bed he will have that day. He demands his breakfast, then he rests comfortably, with a rawhide or Kong slathered in peanut butter. Throughout the day, Trigger enjoys walks on our trail with staff and volunteers. Trigger also enjoys down time cuddling on our couch with his human friends here at the shelter. Trigger tries to convince everyone that he is hungry by carrying his bowl around in his kennel; we have even caught him falling asleep with the edge of his bowl in his mouth. We know that Trigger had experience at his previous home with other dogs who shared the yard he was in, but they were kept under stressful conditions. An adoption to a home with other dogs or children would need to be carefully considered as Trigger may have food resource guarding issues, given the prior living conditions of how he was kept.
