History: These sweet pups needed rescue from an unfortunate situation. They are adorable and doing great in their foster home. They are each hoping to find a family of their own!
A note from the foster:
Sarge was 1 year old on Oct 28th. He has that puppy energy and goofiness but also listens very well. I don’t think he even sheds!
He would be a great fit for an active owner. He is a very loyal friend. He wants to be a watch dog, but understands when you tell him ‘it’s OK’
He is extremely smart and attentive. So much that simply spoken words are all you need for commands.
He is highly responsive to love, treats and a soft voice for reprimands.
He loves his kennel for sleeping, chewing a bone or a place to go when you need him out of the way.
He is completely potty trained. He is not allowed on furniture. He rides very calm in vehicles.
He is also trained to obey an electric fence system. He really likes to stick around the house anyways.
He gets along great with other dogs
He handles very well on a leash.
Some things we’re still working on:
He’s had a tough puppyhood before coming to Coco’s, so he is skittish at times. Meeting new people in an unfamiliar place makes him nervous. He doesn’t like little kids running around close to him. Open spaces or unfamiliar places make him nervous. He is excellent in all these situations when he’s with my resident dog, though.
Sarge just needs a patient, structured and mindful owner for his forever home.
