May 2013 update: Shane is being returned to the rescue because he is having anxiety meeting some adult men. He craves routine and closeness with his humans, but what he loves most of all is playing with other canine buddies. His new home will need to have at least one active dog in it. He is also fine with cats and children. Shane absolutely loves to play, and will benefit from a patient, active family life.
Handsome Shane has a beautiful red/gold coat, weighs about 50 pounds, and is two years old. A DNA test showed him to be a Golden Retriever/Boxer mix. He is a well-mannered walking companion and enjoys running and playing in the shelter yard. Shane is a friendly dog who loves attention and affection and being petted. He has one of those happy doggy faces that looks like he is smiling at you. Shane is a bright dog who wants to please and should be easy to train. He does well with people of all ages and also gets along with other dogs. Shane was tested with cats and did really well, he was friendly and did not try to chase. He went to the vet for his final health checks before traveling and he was SO sweet with everyone. He can be a little shy at first but then relaxes and is friendly with everyone.
Shane was originally confiscated along with 24 other dogs in a hoarding case and taken in by one of our southern partner shelters. He had lived his entire life on a four foot chain prior to being rescued. What an upgrade in life he has gotten! After a lengthy court process, the dogs were surrendered to their facility and Shane has blossomed with the love and attention from the staff and volunteers who care for him. He was shy at first, but now trots happily at your side on daily walks and enjoys being petted. It has been such a joy to see him experience the freedom to run and play, have fun with toys, and savor treats. He is such a sweet dog!
