Foster Home Feedback

10/10/16This weekend Penn met with another dog who is around 9 months old and they played constantly! They had so much fun! It’s great to see Penn getting along so well with other dogs. He did however have a few accidents in the house; we think it was because he was so excited by playing, he forgot to let us know. We have discovered that Penn doesn’t like stairs. He will go down the three stairs we have to get into the yard, but he will not go down a whole flight of stairs. At the bottom of a set of stairs this weekend, Penn saw a couple cats. Because he does not like stairs he just sat at the top staring at them. He did not growl, but eventually he did start barking. We are not sure how he would do with cats.

Right now we are still working on basic training like come, sit, down and get off.

Inside Penn listens very well, however outside he is easily distracted. Penn loves

treats and responds better when enticed with them. We are also working on kennel

training by having Penn eat in his kennel and giving him treats when he goes in. He

even occasionally goes in on his own to take a nap!



Penn is a very strong boy and because he is so curious, he tends to pull on his leash

when on a walk and sees any other animals. 




10/7/16:   Say hello to Penn! Penn is one big lover! Since coming into our home, we have learned a lot about him. He is always looking for cuddles from people, whether you are sitting on the floor or laying on the couch. He will come right up and work his way onto your lap. Penn gets along very well with the other dog in our home, although sometimes they can play a little rough. When playing, Penn can get a little mouthy. He is not trying to be aggressive, he just wants to play with you! He loves playing with toys, but he would much rather chew on them than play fetch.

Outside, Penn loves running around and smelling everything. We have two neighbor dogs who tend to bark and he will bark back and forth with them through the fence. He also barks when he is in his kennel if he knows we are about to leave the house, but other than that, he stays pretty quiet.

When first arriving in our home, Penn marked a few times, but after adjusting and getting comfortable, he hasn’t marked since. Penn is not destructive, but he does try to chew on things like couch cushions, cords, and socks, so we try to make sure to redirect him with the correct items and away from the other things (esp. the cords!).

Penn is not food or toy aggressive at all! Penn and our dog are always sharing toys. We have petted Penn, moved his bowl, and grabbed a couple pieces of food out of his bowl while he was eating and he did nothing but wag his tail.

Because Penn is a big boy and can be a little mouthy and occasionally jumps up, we feel that he would do better in a home without small children. Penn is basically a very large puppy and he would love a family that has the time to work with him on his manners!

Our Adoption Process...

There is a pre-adoption application, reference check, and home visit required prior to adopting an animal. There is an adoption donation/fee applied to all dogs. This fee ranges from $100-150. These fees help cover the veterinary care we have provided for the animals while they wait for homes. The fee also helps pay for the food and other general care we provide for the dogs. You must be 21 yrs or older to adopt a dog and can not live in a an area where there are dog breed bans. We do adopt to homes outside on the area, but there are special requirements for out of state adopters.
