About Me:

Hi I'm Linus!

WAG has just recently had Linus brought into our care, from our shelter in Pemberton PAWS. They had this to pass along about him, but keep an eye on things as we get to know this big boy more! 

 I am a very big boy, who has never had any training in my life. I am friendly, but I’m so big sometimes I don’t know my own strength. I haven’t spent much time around other dogs yet, but with slow introductions, this may be something that could happen in the future! Unfortunately, I had been beaten up by a dog pretty badly before I arrived at PAWS, but thankfully I’m all fixed up now!

I need a dog experienced home who can help me learn the skills I need to be a good boy. I have a kind heart and just want to be with the volunteers as much as possible. I don’t know how to travel in cars or walk on a leash very well, so I would like help learning these new skills! I need a home with no small animals, as I have a high prey drive. I am a little bit of a goofball and don't know my own size, so a home with older kids would be okay, but young kids I could easily knock over a toddler. I would like a person who is willing to take it slow meeting me and spend the time to get to know me while I’m at the shelter first. Someone who wants to get on board with my training plan is necessary!  Could you be my furrever family?

My Story:

I was surrendered to PAWS after I had been roaming the streets for a while. My life before coming to the shelter is a bit of a mystery. 


If you cannot adopt at this time, please consider donating to WAG or PAWS, as we both work closely to help the animals in our communities!
