He is walked daily and will needs walks and/or playtime. He does fabulous on a leash until he gets close to home. Then he gets really excited for some reason. He starts jumping, and mouthing trying to grab your hand. The foster has been bringing a toy with on walks, and when the walk is coming to and end, she gives him the toy which prevents the mouthiness and jumping. At home when playing he also can get a little mouthy when he gets excited. So he may not be the best match for small children who are not used to big dogs and their behaviors.
He is great with kitties and other dogs. Although his foster home doesn't have dogs, he did great with his dog testing prior to arriving to us. We have not seen any anxiety issues, or guarding issues. He still likes to chew sometimes but has kept his chewing on appropriate toys, bones etc. He is fabulous with the teen Daughter in the home. When he first arrived he did some marking. He was neutered on 10-11-16 which helped with the marking along with the foster using a belly band. he hasn't marked now since the beginning to middle of November. He tried once to l lift his leg, the foster said no Kermit, and he put his leg right now.
Kermit was found as a stray in Kentucky. He had been at the shelter waiting for a rescue to save him for a month. Because of his length of stay at the shelter, he ended up on the euthanasia list. When we saw his picture and videos, we had to say YES.
Kermit is being fostered in a home in Bolingbrook, IL, which is where you and your family would go to meet her. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ We must have an adoption application submitted and processed prior to making an arrangements for a meet and greet. Once we receive the application we will process. We are all volunteers so it can take a few days to process it. Please be patient. Thank you.
If you are seeing Kermit posted for adoption, he is still looking for a home so there is no need to email us asking if he's available. We update the site regularly. If your interested in meeting this adorable boy, please complete an adoption application by going to our website at www.angelsonwheels.org and clicking on the "forms" tab. We need to have a submitted adoption application and processed prior to making an appointment since we do not have a facility or regular viewing hours.
Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
