Meet Waldo~ Four year old Waldo is not only very handsome, he is very sweet! Waldo loves people, and is totally fine with other dogs of all ages and sizes. In addition to being smart, Waldo is great in the crate and potty trained. His energy level is average. While loving to go for walks and great on the leash, Waldo does not need constant attention. He is quite content entertaining himself or just chillaxing. Waldo is around 3-4 years old. It's hard to be sure of his age because his teeth are pretty messed up and worn down. We are thinking he was caged and Waldo tried getting out by chewing out. *While seeing our veterinarian for his CT health certificate, Waldo was very good until the vet need to do things Waldo didn't like. Then it got ugly and Waldo tried to bite the vet and vet tech. After they stopped doing what he didn't like, he was fine. There was no lunging or ill feelings luckily. Waldo is a very sweet dog but after seeing that we can only adopt him out to someone that has experience dealing with this kind of behavior. We don't know if it will happen again, or if it will happen often so we need to err on the side of caution. Who knows, Waldo might need to be medicated or sedated before every vet visit! And of course since this happened we cannot send Waldo home to a family with children as we know Waldo has buttons and we have no idea what other situations can upset him and cause him to become aggressive again! Waldo weighs 62lbs. BREED IDENTIFICATION: Please understand that many rescue dogs are mixes of multiple breeds. Petfinder allows us to choose up to two breeds per dog. While the shelters and our rescue do our best in accurately identifying breeds, breed identification is not guaranteed. If there is a certain breed that you do not want, it is very important that you share this with our rescue when applying. When adopting a puppy, breed uncertainty plays a big part in the size/look of the dog as an adult. Please know that any puppy can be a wonderful dog, regardless of preconceived notions of certain breeds, but it is very important that the adopter has the dedication and patience to raise the puppy with boundaries, consistency, structure, & love. The more effort you give towards training & time you allow for exercise, your puppy will grow to be a HUGE source of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, TOTAL LOYALTY, HAPPINESS, COMFORT & COMPANIONSHIP! ABOUT OUR RESCUE: We are a small rescue run by volunteers & focused on finding the right match for both our dogs & for you. If you are interested in adopting through our rescue, you first will need to complete an adoption application & be approved as a potential adopter before meeting any of our pups. No need to be intimidated by our application as it allows us to get to know you & your lifestyle. Of course, the more you can share the better! Please also note, while a fenced yard is fantastic, it is not required by our rescue, however, it may be required for a certain dog occasionally. Once adoption applicants are approved to become potential adopters, we offer private appointments where you can meet one or several dogs at the discretion of the rescue. We offer a unique & pleasant experience focused on finding the perfect match. It is extremely important to us that everyone is treated with respect & that NO ONE IS LEFT HANGING. WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU WITHIN 2 TO 3 DAYS of application submission. If there is a dog you are eager to meet, please TEXT US DIRECTLY at 203-241-2351 so that we can check the status of your application and move it forward immediately. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you find your new best friend. *All adult dogs can be cat tested by request. HOME/RENTER INSURANCE: SOME PROVIDERS HAVE VERY STRICT POLICIES REGARDING WHICH TYPE OF DOG BREEDS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THEIR COVERAGE. STATE FARM WAS SUGGESTED TO US AS THEY DO NOT PUNISH, DROP, NOR REFUSE YOU DUE TO DOG BREED SHOULD YOU RUN INTO ISSUES WITH YOUR CURRENT PROVIDER.
