From the Foster: Newman has only been with me a few days, but I can already tell that he is the sweetest boy once he gets to know you. He is a bit of a nervous Nellie and is very anxious about meeting new people, so patience is key to getting to know him. He loves and is very playful with other dogs - he would do well in a multiple dog household if the other dog were confident and well-mannered. I think he could be successful as an only dog, but it would take longer without an example for him to follow. Newman would not do well in a home with another nervous dog.
Newman does jump and tends to shout when he's nervous or anxious and while this seems to lessen as he's getting more comfortable, it is definitely part of his personality, so I wouldn't recommend him for an apartment and obedience and confidence training are a must for him.
House training is going very well! I have yet to see him signal that he needs to go out, but he's done very well with frequent, scheduled let outs.
Newman is looking for a person or family who will be patient with him and have the time and commitment to work with him each day. He is definitely worth it! If you have questions or would like more information, please complete an application!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
I f you would like to meet/adopt this animal or anyone else, then please fill out an adoption application at http://secondhandhounds.org/
adoption-information/and the foster(s) will be in touch! Keep in mind that there may be multiple applicants applying for the same animal(s). You only need to complete 1 application for multiple animals that you're interested in.
Note - We change an animal's listing to say "PENDING ADOPTION" when they already had a meet and greet with a family who plans to adopt that animal. We put "NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS" on a listing when an animal has multiple applications in and the foster has asked to stop accepting any more while they review the applications they've already received.
