8 FREE GROUP DOG TRAINING SESSIONS WITH OUR DOG WHISPERER/TRAINER in Orange City FL
ADOPT FEE - FULLY VETTED: $ 75
My Story: I'm a 3 1/2 year old (12.13) 60 lb hunk of muscle and elegance. I have a lot of energy and love to be playful. I must have a fenced in yard to run, roam, and explore.
Sometimes when I have too much energy, I need to run it off. Although I love to play, I'm still a big fan of taking naps. My favorite part of every day is cuddle time before bed.
I'm very alert and am always on guard to protect those I love. I also have a timid side but I'm working on it. Loud noises, such as the garage door and thunder or sudden movements have a tendency to scare me. I can be jumpy and nervous, but once I get comfortable with you, I cozy right up.
I have a lot to offer and am a very good boy. Everyone who knows me loves me, and I hope you will too. I'd make a great ESA because I like people. Since I'm high energy small children might get bowled over by me so older ones would be fine.
I know these commands: Sit, lay, paw. Roll over, shake, other paw, gentle, kisses.
I'd also love to have a sibling to romp hard with. With my energy it would be great to have a brother or sister because I do so well in a dog park with new dogs that I JUST KNOW IN MY HEART I NEED A BUDDY DOGGIE!
Emotional Support Animals (ESA)
Emotional Support Animals are not required to undergo specialized training. They can be dogs, cats, exotics, birds. Their primary role is to provide their owners with emotional comfort. Emotional support animals can benefit a disabled individual psychologically. The basic gift of companionship and unconditional affection can be the therapy needed to counter a condition like debilitating depression or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
ESAs are protected under the Fair Housing Amendments Act (FHAA) and the Air Carrier Access Act (ACAA). People meeting the proper criteria are entitled to an ESA to assist them with life. The FHAA protects individuals by allowing ESAs to live with them regardless of breed (even with no pet policies). The ACAA protects individuals by allowing ESAs to fly with them in the cabin of an airplane without having to pay additional fees. ESAs are not required to be professionally trained. An owner can train the pet. A letter of need written by a mental health counselor may be required for those wanting to transport via plane or for landlords. For information regarding the legalities of ESA contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
