Loving family looking to add a precious, sweet, gentle, loyal and loving Pancake to their home! Meet 4-5yo Pancake. He's had such a rough life. He used to live outside on a chain until his family allowed us to take him in a find a better home for him. Since then at no fault of his own he's been in 3 foster homes, been adopted once by a sweet family but was a little too much energy for an older woman in the home with health issues, to being back in foster, to getting adopted at Christmas and living with a new sweet family that included a senior dog, a senior cat and two very small and young children. Sadly, Pancake was returned because his adopters had him on leash outside and he saw the neighbors yorkie on leash and bolted for her. He went "after" her but neither dog was injured. We can kinda say Pancake has high prey drive because of going after the yorkie and he's charged the current fosters cat but he did do well with cats at other fosters and in his last home but I'd say no small dogs and no cats should be in his future just to be safe :)
I've personally had the pleasure as you can see of having Pancake in my home for a few nights. He's been great with our 21mo daughter and was eager to meet our dogs but due to his short stay we didn't do intros. So Pancake went to a 4th foster and AGAIN no fault of his own was attacked by the fosters current dog :( He's ok! He's a trooper! Was still loving and affectionate with his foster and got lots of sweet cuddles.
We need to desperately find this boy a good furever home. Guys, if we didn't have a zoo this boy would have been mine a long time ago. I just can't even describe to you how adorable and sweet he is. He CRAVES love. And he DESERVES love. Please help us find him a permanent and furever home!!
Cats probably not ok unless they're good at hiding and don't come out much!
Big dogs ok
Prefer calmer and submissive dogs with low energy
No small dogs!
