This is a courtesy post:
Shadow is a loving, eager to please 4-5 year old goofball. He is a great companion inside and out but unfortunately has washed out as a ptsd service dog. Shadow gets along with other dogs, cats, adults, but too big and goofy to live with children at 80lbs of dancing excitement when he is happy or tries to play with them. When Shadow falls in love with you, he will become very protective to any stranger that approaches you in a manner he thinks is threatening. Non-threatening strangers can come and go with happy wags and a goofy smile. Poor Shadow has a past history of abuse and he has some scarring on his face.
Shadow knows all his basic commands, house trained, crate trained, has used all methods of transport including flight, and works well with a face harness (halti, gentle leader). He enjoys biking, hiking, chilling at your feet or on the couch if allowed. Shadow is stoically healthy but does have a seasonal cough due to allergies and when excited due to past trachea damage from collar. He is UTD with shots, wellness exam, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Please call Ellen Clark at (407) 463-0858 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
