In shelter Dog

Acushnet, MA, 02743
Pet name:
Coat length:
George is a middle aged hound mix looking for his forever home. He generally likes other dogs, and enjoys playing and hanging with dogs he knows and trusts, but does need slow, proper introductions to them and is not a "dog park dog." He also needs slow intros to new people to be set up for success, this means that anyone who is new to George will have to be okay with taking it slow and earning his trust over time. But once he trusts you, he’s very sweet, snuggly and always happy to see his pals. No kids for Sir George. He likes to run, walk, hike, swim and is an all around great adventure buddy. He used to have issues in the car but does a lot better now, making him even more of a buddy dog. He would do best with a fenced in yard where he can hang out freely for the day when youre home because the more time he spends outside, the happier he is, though we’ll consider this on a case by case basis. He knows his basic commands (sit, stay, down, place, come, kennel up, etc) and walks well on leash.

*PLEASE NOTE: All dogs are in foster care all over MA & RI. They are NOT at the cat shelter, which is the address listed on Petfinder. There are ONLY cats there. We do not set up meet and greets with dogs until after youve been approved to adopt. Please do not email asking us if you can come by and meet a dog the same day.*
