Jun 6, 2017: Black Bart is learning to relax. He enjoys sitting under his foster's desk while she works. He is a super cuddly and very sweet boy. He loves his foster sister! Every day he gets more comfortable and happy. He is becoming more comfortable in the crate, loves to play, is initiating cuddles with foster mom, and sleeping through the night.
May 30, 2017: Black Bart is the shyest of the brothers. Although he is scared with all the changes in his life he does accept affection and will eat out of your hand. He is well-behaved and very quiet. He only barks when he has something to say! Like "I need to go out" or "I'm hungry" or "there are cats here!" He seems afraid of the foster's cats, not aggressive towards them. Bart is house and crate trained and good on leash. He loves his food and loves other dogs. He might be happier with another dog. He adores the foster's young dog and follows her everywhere.
May 26, 2017: The 3 B's (Black Jack, Black Bart & Black Bear) are from a rural shelter we work with. They were owner give up to the shelter, his female had a litter of 8 and he could not find homes for the last 3 and turned them in to Animal Control. He is getting the female spayed. The Animal Control Officer asked us if we could find them new homes. They were outside dogs but very happy to be inside. When you first meet them they hang back to see what you are going to do but if you have treats or a ball they will gather around to get attention. They are looking for a family that will give them plenty of attention, love and training. Must have a fenced yard or they might wander off.
Kids 10 and up as we don't have history. Good with other dogs. No cat information. Knows sit, will have a Training Addendum as they are your dogs. They haven't been on lead much but are learning. Crate trained.
