Sherman is a very social outgoing playful goofy yet gentle big Ole puppy that loves kids, men, women, dogs & cats. As of 8/24/16 he was 66 lbs and he is estimated to have been born February of 2016. He is tall and lanky. Sherman's passion is playing tug-of-war, chase and wrestling with his canine companions. He is living in a foster home with small and large dogs submissive and alpha. Sherman is friends with all of them. His best friend is a 100 lb Rott and 16 lb Schnauzer mix. Sherman enjoys getting in water. He went to a water park open to dogs and was leash less with hundreds of dogs. He got in the wave pool and he had a good ole time running around the park. He is house trained with a doggy door and he goes to his crate on command. He is working on commands and pretty much has sit down. When his foster mom is not home he is crated which totals around 8 hours Monday-Friday. When his foster mom is home Sherman has run of the house inside and in the backyard. At night he typically sleeps in his foster mom's bed right next to her.
Sherman is a typical puppy that likes to investigate by chewing on things. His foster home sets him up for success by keeping things he should not chew on up. He takes treats oh so gently.
Sherman was saved from the Lufkin Animal Shelter on 6/5/16 and transported to the Dallas Fort Worth area where he is being fostered. Sherman was found with a hunting collar on the was tracked back to a hog hunter who trades his dogs for dog food. Sherman has zero prey drive so we think his owner dumped him because he did not have the prey drive he needed to hog hunt. Sherman was named after Sherman Texas which is where the man lived that found him on highway 59 in Luvkin. The shelter was closed so the man drove him over 2 hours away to Sherman then drove him over 2 hours back to take him to the Luvkin Shelter so his family could find him. He reached out to the rescue community to help save Sherman from euthanasia due to space since his owner chose not to reclaim Sherman.
Sherman is neutered, up-to-date on his rabies, bordatella, and distemper parvo. He is heartworm negative, on heartworm preventative and microchipped with HomeAgain.
