Hi, I’m Stoic. I’m a big brave guy who was found with a broken arm/elbow. The kind people at AARCS helped me get it fixed. It’s all better and I’m now ready for my forever home!
I came to my foster home to heal from surgery. My mom has been very impressed by my good behavior and my stunning good looks. She loved that I never had accidents in the house, didn’t wreck any of her stuff, and tolerated the resident cat constantly pouncing on my big fluffy tail. She taught me to “sit” but we’re still working on the other basics…
I’m a big docile guy, but I like to move at my own pace sometimes. Now that it’s nice outside and my elbow has healed, I love to go for walks (I’m very polite on a leash) and play with my foster brother. Be warned though, I’ve also discovered that the front door is the gateway to adventures and I’ve been known to barge my way past my mom in an attempt to explore on my own. I don’t go far or fast, and she always catches me while I’m letting the neighborhood know what belongs to me (hint: everything belongs to me!) She thinks someone willing to spend a little time working on recall with me would be the perfect match!
I’ve met lots of dogs at my foster house, big and small, old and young, and I’ve gotten along with them all. I’ve only met kids while on our walks but I think I like what I see. Mom says to warn you though, I sometimes forget my size and try to shake 2 paws at the same time….apparently I’m a bit heavy and the little human’s might not appreciate that! During my time in foster I even got to go to work at a hospice. Everyone there loved me when I sat and held their hands.
I still limp a bit on my front leg but as time passes I keep getting better and better. My surgeon say’s I’m healing great!
I can’t wait to meet you!
