Whitey is a white German Shepherd mix, approximately 58#. He was rescued from a home where he was neglected and starved. He was left in a yard for months at a time with no socialization and very little human contact except for someone feeding him occasionally. He was never allowed inside. I took him into my home with 5 other rescued male dogs and he has been so happy. He has separation anxiety due to the neglect. The problem is that he does not get along with my sharpei- mix. He gets along with the other four dogs just fine. It is so sad because he loves his home here but I cannot risk another fight. He is a bit of an escape artist and will need a good secure fence. He is completely crate-trained and will walk well on a leash. He may be OK with cats but I am not sure. He would be good for a one or two dog family who would bring him inside at least at night. He is a good, loving dog who just wants a family who will care about him and include him in their family activities. Update: he is calming down now and not so anxious. He would be better with a female owner than a male because he is afraid of most men at first. If I can get my trainer Jason V. to come over and socialize him with Benny, I will keep him and he will not be up for adoption.
Easthaven Dog Rescue is a small rescue organization and shelter. We rescue homeless, neglected, abused and/or abandoned pets, mainly from the Easthaven subdivision. We also have a program called "Shelter in Place." Shelter in Place assists people who currently own pets but want to give up their pets because of problems. We help solve the problems, allowing the owners to keep their pet. Some of the problems we help with include: owner can't afford vaccines or medical treatment, training and socialization problems, containment issues (no fence or fence needs repair), and other problems. We like to teach people what their pets need. Feel free to call or write if you have any pet questions.
Donations of cash or supplies are always appreciated. We would welcome volunteers who would help bathe or walk dogs.
