Sarge's story is all too common in his extremely close call to being euthanized in a scary Texas shelter. But who could ignore her adorable manner and desire to bond with someone who would be his best friend? Sarge, while initially shy...his engaging and adorable nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated. He is such a wonderful being...we think he represents some of the best qualities of the Brussels and the Cairn Terrier.
Sarge, with his loving attitude, seems to be in the process of leaving behind the neglect and lack of love that made up his early life. At about 3 years old and 9 lbs, Sarge is a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please. The happier his family is with his behavior, the more he shines with his accomplishments. We would love to see Sarge in a home that includes him in family time and activities...he's learning about being social and would thrive in a family that truly loves him and considers him a very important family member.
Sarge would also be a wonderful companion for retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Sarge is a bit frightened of the quickness of movement and loud voices of young kids...it is for this reason that we feel that Sarge would be happiest in an adult home.
It's not an absolute requirement..but we'd like to place Sarge in a home with another small and very gentle dog. He enjoys his relationships with these pups and it makes him happy to just hang out together in the sunshine.
Sarge will do well with anyone who's invested in spending time with their pup. He's so pleasant and portable that he can be a part of any adventure....it can be a leisurely walk, a visit with friends, or just an afternoon spending time together plopped down on the couch - all of this would speak to Sarges's trustworthy, gentle temperament and extremely loving ways.
Sarge appears to be a very lightly shedding pup..although it's a bit difficult to tell until he grows out his sad shelter coat. He'll require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his coat healthy and soft as cotton.
Sarge is in a foster home in the Denver area. We're currently accepting applications and setting up Meet & Greets for this friendly and kind best friend.
