I’d like to introduce the newest member of the RAGOM family—Mr. Casey! He has been in his foster home since New Year’s Eve and we are still getting to know him, but here are some things we know so far. We were told Casey is between 1 & 2 years old. We can believe it since he has quite a bit of puppy-like energy. He has been to the vet, so is up-to-date on his shots and received his microchip. He will be neutered on February 3, 2016. After that, he will be available to go home to a new family!!
Casey is left home with our resident dog for 8 hours a day and does just fine with no tendency to chew or destroy things, although he has greeted us with a shoe or glove from time to time! We were told he does not kennel well. He had a few "accidents" when he was first left alone with our dog during the day, but he has not had any lately. Casey does a good job of letting you know when he needs to go out and will also do his duty on walks. He loves walks!!! While on walks, we are going to start using a Gentle Leader to help stop his pulling. Hopefully, with some training, he should start to do much better.
He hasn't shown a desire to bolt out the door, but like with all young, energetic dogs, his forever family would need to be careful. It would be great for him to have a fenced backyard to be able to run and jump and play!! To protect your garden, you may want to keep an eye on him while he's out in the yard, as we were told he might be a digger. Hopefully with some training, he improves with that as well.
Casey is good with other dogs and loves to play!! Unfortunately for Casey, our 8-year old resident has aches and pains, so doesn't really want to play. Having said that, he is quite capable of entertaining himself by throwing and retrieving balls and toys. He would love to have a play buddy to romp and roll around with!!
Casey loves our granddaughter and her friends, who are 10-12 years old. We don't know how he is with little children. He may do better with older children, only because he likes jumping up on people. He is very energetic and needs some training to help with the jumping. He is quickly learning that good things happen when he does what is asked of him--like "sit"!
All in all, Casey is a wonderful guy (also known as "little Dude") who can't help but make you laugh and fall in love with him. He would do great with an active family or someone who would invest some time training him. He is just a young pup who needs to learn some puppy manners. With a little help, he will make a wonderful addition to the right home. If you are interested in meeting Casey, please let your Placement Advisor know.
