Arrival Story: Waggin' Tails found Andrew at Detroit Animal Care and Control. His perky ears caught our attention and his silly personality won us over. After meeting Andrew we promised to find him a great new home.
Approximate Age/Weight: 1-2 years / 50 lbs.
Personality: This kid always has a smile on his face! Andrew is a little independent, a little athletic, a lot silly with eyes that will melt your heart. We’re not sure what breed Andrew is but we have fun guessing. He is likely a sight hound mix. His skinny build makes him ideal as walking/running partner. He’d love a yard of his own to run in freely. Andrew is treat-motivated and his nose is to the ground on walks. We are working on his walking skills and he wears a harness. Andrew is puppy like and loves toys. Sometimes he can be a bit pushy in trying to get your attention by jumping or nudging but he is learning manners and is quickly redirected to a sit and eye contact awaiting your next move. Andrew is learning his name but a whistle gets his attention every time.
We are unsure if Andrew is fully housetrained as he is currently residing at a kennel until a foster home opens up. But he is doing a good job at keeping his kennel clean. Andrew is good at the vets office.
Forever Home: Andrew would fit in best with an active person/family. No electric fences for Andrew, please.
