Badger escaped the overcrowded shelter by the skin of his teeth. He has no known past history as he was picked up as a stray. Fortunately for Badger, he was fostered in someone's home until the scheduled transport to BRSM so we do know a few things about him. We suspect that he is a lost or dumped hunter as he tracks while on walks - tail flagging, nose to the ground and pulling excitedly. He doesn't bark much, but will loudly announce the arrival of any wildlife in your yard. He is friendly with adults and children alike, as well as other dogs and the family cat. Because Badger has such strong hunting instincts, he will need a yard with an extremely secure fence (Ft. Knox strong!) or be leash walked exclusively. His temporary foster in Kentucky suggests leash walking in the yard until he is completely settled in and supervision thereafter. Badger has a friendly, happy personality and is a very good boy. He'd like a chance to prove it. Right now he's holed up in a crate at the vet's office awaiting some kind soul to foster or adopt him.
If you think that Badger could help brighten your days - as a foster pup or a forever addition to your family - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
