About Troy

Akita mix
Age: Adult
Sex: Male

Hi. My name is Troy. I am a handsome 6yr old Akita mix. I may look intimidating, but I'm really just a gentle giant once I know you're not going to hurt me. My history with humans hasn't been very good. I spent the first 5 yrs of my life living outside on concrete. My 'owners' did not provide me with the human interaction I craved or allow me the chance to socialize with other dogs. When neighbors started complaining about me being outside crying in the frigid temperatures, my owner sent me to the highest kill shelter in NY. Thankfully I was rescued and have spent the last year living with the greatest foster dad ever. He has provided me with the love and structure I desperately needed and deserved. Thanks to him, I am now crate trained, housebroken, walk well on a leash and am very food motivated. I won't lieĽ└%BD'Ľ└%BD|.I can become possessive of my food, but I'm working on it and don't mind eating breakfast and dinner and my crate. Although I have never shown any signs of aggression, I do take time to warm up to people since I was never properly socialized. For that reason, it's best if I'm the only dog in the house. I love to cuddle in bed and will roll over for belly rubs once I know you're not there to use, abuse or neglect me. I am fully vetted and healthy. I am looking for someone to take me for walks, runs and allow me chase after my tennis ball. I would really love to be part of a family.
