9/29/19 FOSTER UPDATE: After just one day, Carter is transitioning well. He may drool some but he is a big lovable teddy bear. If you lay on the floor, he will place his head on your chest – sometimes with his rump up in the air and sometimes he tries to lay on top of you! He has been great with our nine year old and is calm around her.
He knows sit, down, and will respond to his name. If you say no, he will stop what he is doing. He is quiet in his crate, although it takes coxing with treats to go in. So far, he seems to be house broken. Our routine is take him out after every meal and drinking water. He LOVES to be brushed! And laid there for 30 minutes as we use the rake on his undercoat. Overall, he is a calmer dog but is still playful. He typically barks with excitement when getting water and food. He rides well in the car and is quiet as long as the car is moving. He has been a great family dog.
Carter is a recent arrival and we need to double-check his age since the owners said he is five, but believe he is younger. Like so many of our rescues, he has been on quite a journey. His original owner passed away and he next home kept him chained outside. He broke out of his chain and was found during his travels. The owners were located, but fortunately, they didn’t want to bring him back home. The person who found him reached out to us for help and the more we learn about him the happier we are to find him a family that will share the comforts of their home. He is a very friendly 83-pound sweetheart who gets along well with other dogs. Our vet described him as very chill and mellow. That sounds like a perfect match for so many of our adopters and Carter definitely deserves a nice soft bed.
