Approximate DOB 08/11/2022 Size - maybe 50 lbs - his mom is about 45 but he is a big boy History- This guy was picked up by animal control with his mom (Phoebe) and sister (Monica) running at large. At that time the puppies were about 5 weeks old and just following mom as she looked for food. They then spent about 6 weeks in the shelter with no interest. After 6 weeks the shelter was packed with no open kennels and they were asking for help and sent out some photos of dogs who had been there a long time that could end up on the euthanasia list if one had to be made. We let them know we would take them and picked them up the next morning. Sadly the shelter is very small with few staff members and a bunch of dogs- which means that puppies don't really get the socialization they need at a shelter so they were pretty fearful when we got them. The little girl would run from us every chance she got and they hid under and behind their mom. They have now been with us for a few weeks and doing much better but will need patient homes with a focus on love and training- spending as much time as possible with family members and meeting new people. Temperament- He tries to be very brave but is still a little worried. Extremely smart but still acts a little fearful. Doesn't accept cuddles as he didn't grow up with them but now loves attention and pets. Ross is very treat motivated. Energy Level- Very high energy Dogs/Cats- They have met the other dogs here and love to play chase. They are very submissive puppies when meeting the others. Terrified of the cats. Housetrained- They currently stay in the laundry room with a baby gate and are completely house trained to go outside to do their business. Ross is absolutely adorable and looks very much like a Bull Terrier mix. If we didn't have momma we would have thought he was a Bull Terrier mix- and his dad could have been we honestly don't know. But we don't think momma has Bull Terrier in her - she looks to be a kelpie mix. Ross is very smart and learns quickly. He is also very food motivated and really, really, really wants to trust people. He is such a sweet boy and follows us around to watch. When I weed the garden he drags them around to try and get Monica to chase him. He loves the grandkids and is just such a sweet gentle boy. He is still fearful though and will run if they move to fast but overall if they sit quietly he loves to go to them for love. He will make a wonderful addition to any family wanting a special pup to help come out of his shell- this boy will definitely blossom once he learns to trust a new family as he has been meeting strangers and is excited for the attention.
