Rock Star   

In shelter Dog

Apple Valley, San Bernardino County, ...
Pet name:
Rock Star
Beagle, Mixed
Brown, Chocolate with White
Rock Star is a beagle mix, 5 and a half years old and about 40 lbs.  He is two tone---brown/white-- and an active boy. When he was younger and before he came to us, he had several homes that didn't work out. In one, he chased the cat.  He can, if introduced properly, mesh with other dogs. 

In the other two, there were nipping issues (no skin breakage) when new owners tried to restrain him by the collar.  It is entirely possibly he gave a warning that he did not want to be pulled by his collar and it was ignored.  And with a new dog we always recommend leash work.  We would not want to be pulled by a collar, or the collar of our shirt - and if that were done and we gave warnings that were ignored, we might then punch the "puller" or do the same back.  

You gotta listen and pay attention to your dog - educate yourself on dog signals, behavior+++   The better informed you are, better teacher and respectful, the better your dog will be. He will do well in a home like this; He is eager to learn. One of our dog walkers has worked with him, and he loves to go out on the leash. 

He has transformed quite a bit recently, and always gives cues when he is afraid or uncomfortable. Once he trusts you and believes you are with him, he lets down his guard and plays, goes for walks, and likes to get petted.  However, he needs patience and for things to be done respectful of his timing and boundaries.  He doesn't pull on a leash, but he can when he sees a squirrel.  

NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS:  On his SAFER test assessment, he scored all 1's (A's) except a 2 on tag item (may be a little sensitive to high energy).  He was described as jumpy social, active, sweet, bubbly.  Enjoys going on walks.  Needs manners training. 

At this point he needs a patient, training savvy person or adult home.  We'll keep you updated as anything changes.

For further info on the adoption process, please visit our home page and check out the "Adopt a Dog" section, which has thorough instructions.  All our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and  fully vaccinated before adoption; they have been wormed, bathed, socialized, walked daily and much loved; each adoptee leaves with a leash, collar, and all medical records.  
Our prices are higher than the shelters' because we nurse the dogs through their illnesses and get them needed surgeries and dentals. We also spend time socializing. Furthermore, unlike shelters, rescues do not get financial aid from the government and must rely on donations, grants, and adoption fees. Our fees for adults start at $150 and go up to $750. The higher end is for our most in demand dogs, such as young beagles and other purebred dogs. The lower end is for dogs who have been here a while. For puppies, we may go beyond this and charge $1000. The good news is that, because rescues fall under the "charity" category, the fees for our dogs are officially donations and are therefore tax deductible. You can think of it as donating to a worthy cause and getting a dog in return!
