  • Story

    George is a male submissive dog that will be happy go lucky with time and patience.

    George was living in a community in north Saskatchewan. He was trapped by his foster during a clinic that was held in his community. George went to live with his foster after he was trapped so he could be socialized. In the beginning George was very afraid and would scream out of fear when his foster tried to touch him. This is because he had no human contact before. Over time his foster would put a little pressure on him to let him know her presence was ok and that she wouldn’t hurt him. But most of the time she allowed him to be and get use to his surroundings. Over time he did start to trust a little bit and began to develop a bond with the other dogs in the home. He has especially developed a bond with the dominant male dog, Roman. Roman is a security blanket for him and he gets much of his confidence from Roman. It has been 6 months since George has come to stay at the foster home and he is doing great and trusts his pack, human and dog. He enjoys going out to the off leash parks and loves to run around. He gives little licks to his foster mom and is starting to learn how to play. he has learned how to sit recently. He is very trust worthy of his surroundings right now but it has to be known if he leaves his secure environment he is likely to go back into his feral tendencies. He will need stability, patience and trust with an experienced dog owner.

      Yes, Behavioral Special Needs

      George was trapped and was semi feral, no human touch but had lived in close proximity to people. He needs to have someone he will trust and learn to trust. He is great in foster care with his family ( one human and 2 dogs, the one dog he follows for confidence) But will be fearful of a new environment and its people.
