My Perfect Match:
-Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know us before taking us home. We are fearful of strangers when we first meet them.
-Has experience with fearful dogs. Our reactions to fears can include barking & lunging or not wanting to move!
-Has lots of patience and understanding of our past - we were feral with our other siblings for the first 6 months of our lives, then our first home was PAWS & WAG.
-Having a safe & secured yard would be a bonus for morning zoomies!
-Loves goofy loveable quirky boys! When we are comfortable with you, we like to show off and get into mischief.
-Will continue with our training and be okay with doing individual training for each of us. We are very food motivated and already know a lot of basic training goals!
-We need help to grow confidence without the other, while we love going on walks together, we need individual walks as well!
-Will be okay with vocal dogs! We are both loud barkers and sometime bark in excitement!
-Will be strong! We are both strong and there is two of us 😉
-Will love us forever no matter what, quirks and all!
-Although we take a while to warm up to new people, once we trust you we are very loyal to our friends.
-We are both very well behaved in the home, although we are at the counter level, we never sneak stuff off!
-We are very shy about meeting new people, you may need to meet a few times before we are friends.
-We enjoy quiet walks in the woods, we would need to work slowly on enjoying walks in busier areas.
-We need lots of gentle training, we loved getting a chance to work with Saundra from Alpine dogs!
-We have a few tricks up our sleeves - 'Touch' will bring us right to you for a touch of your hand and a treat. - 'This way' will let us know that we are going to turn abruptly to a new direction if you want us to avoid something. We do well with recall when it has been practised in a safe environment and with a long line. 'Leave it' often reminds us to check in with our human. 'Sit' and 'lie down' are easy for us 🙂 We are still learning 'stay' but doing pretty good with that too!
Our first 6 months of our lives were without human interaction, we were with our 2 other littermates and no home. We were brought into PAWS and shortly after transferred to WAG. After some time at WAG, we really settled in and were ready to find a home to call our own. We were adopted by a lovely individual who put in lots of time to gain our trust and we loved her greatly. Unfortunately, we were brought back to WAG as we are a lot of dog for one person!
If you cannot adopt at this time, please consider donating to our WAG, they continue to take in animals like us, who will need a little more time to find their forever family.
