Yes, we have another foster dog.
This poor guy was fuh-reaking out at the center. Scared to death with huge separation anxiety.
So, we brought him home to our pack of hounds.
And…he was terrified of them – especially Wally, oddly enough. Our guys were baffled – they went from Hey-New-Guy-Let’s-Play to Hey-New-Guy-Let’s-At-Least-Sniff-Each-Other to Huh…What’s-Wrong-With-This-Dude?
Jack also panicked when we left the house – there was much wailing and nashing of teeth.
But man, what a difference a week makes.
As happens so often, once you take dog out of the incredibly stressful environment of a kennel and place him in a home, magic happens.
Jack now loves to play with Sawyer and Wally. (Sherlock spectates).
He’s well on his way to being crate-trained, and we’ve learned that he already knows (and obeys!) quite a few commands: Sit, Lay Down, Stay, Come, and Off (as in, get off that chair).
Pretty darn good for a two-year-old.
His affection knows no end – he is at his absolute happiest cuddled up next to you on the couch.
Jack has so much love to give and will make a great family member. When we took him to open house on Sunday, he remained perfectly still and calm while a little girl (~3 years old) carefully inspected his ears and nose and mouth. He was just happy for the attention.
He’s pretty much the perfect dog with his lone fault being that he loves his humans so much that he gets upset when they leave. But even that improves every single day.
So, if you happen to live in the State College area and you want to give this great guy a forever home, check out Centre County PAWS or come out to the open house this Sunday from 12-2 pm. Jack would love to meet you!
