Seven is a POINTER mix who weighs about 65 lbs and was born around the end of 2008. Like so many dogs, he had a home - and a family - but they moved and left him behind. AAT was alerted to his situation the week before Thanksgiving. He had been left in the backyard for over 2 weeks with no food or water. It took a few days of coaxing with food (and the cold weather) for this sweet boy to give in to his fears of new Humans and allow one of our Volunteers to touch him and slip a lead over his head. He walked - on leash - into his new life. Upon entering the backyard at his AAT Foster home, Seven's personality radically changed. His tail went up and his attitude leaped from fear to joy as he explored his new space! He was so thankful!
He likes to run and play with girl dogs - but so far he challenges the boys. He is shy about meeting new people, but we are seeing that fear fall to the wayside as we immerse him into his first real family, his AAT Foster Family. We will continue to teach Seven house manners and general obedience skills. He is a fast learner - he was crate trained in less than a day! And boy does he love his crate - it's warm and comfy with a never ending supply of fresh water and those non-stop kibbles!
Yeah, it's good to be an AAT Foster Dog!
