Description:
We’ve all heard about the viral posts of “Prancer, The Haunted Victorian Child Dog” and “F*%#ing adopt Hank Already” so let me add Faboam to the mix. My sweet boy was just born a little lacking in the Prefrontal cortex sort of way. We’ve had Fabian in Rescue since he was a puppy and from the get-go, he has always been leery of strangers even as a baby puppy. Because we have had him his whole life and put in the work to minimize those knee-jerk judgments and fears we know that he has no reason to feel this way. That said, he does. Nearly a year and a half later and many visits with the behaviorist and I conclude that he just needs a quiet home. A simple request really, he needs to be put up for visitors and introduced slowly to new long-term guests if any were to arise. 

He will never be featured on the UPS dogs website or deemed Mr. Congeniality but he loves his person! Fabian enjoys other dogs, does not tolerate cats, is house trained, crate trained, not a barker in spite of his breed (which I’ve included below), and did I mention he’s handsome?! Serious inquiries only please, I know he’s stunning but take into account if your home is the right kind of home from what I’ve described. He has trimmed down since these pictures were taken earlier this summer, he was getting a little chonky.

I wish I had a witty catchphrase for Fabian but alas here we are, no wit but all heart!

All known information about an individual dog is provided in its listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters should understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for 1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only hold it for one hour per month of age (i.e. a 4-month-old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break). 2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you cant supervise. 3.) Socialization.  The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home. 4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well-adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dogs behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded ten-fold, for years to come.  Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didnt realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.  Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time-consuming and can be expensive. All dogs require supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well-socialized dog is more than worth the effort to get them there.
