Dodger arrived from Turkey with the rest of the dogs on Friday and came to us yesterday. He's a big, adorable, rambunctious hunk o' love. Dodge's bio says that he is from Eskisehir in Central Anatolia. He was found on the street and spent time in a foster home, and they guess he is about 3 years old. Since arriving here, he also seems to be a very happy, social boy, who is a handful of energy. He can be stubborn--when he doesn't want to do something, he simply lays down, but if you keep walking away, he will follow. He loves to play and has spent a lot of time wrestling with the residents. He immediately jumped on the couch, the chair, and each of the beds, like Goldilocks trying to figure out which was "just right."

He likes toys, ate his food right away, and loved treats; when one of the residents got too close when his treat was sitting on the floor, he gave a warning growl. He doesn't seem to know "house behavior"--he tried to climb over the coffee table, which was hysterical. He had one little accident in the house last night, but after the long trip he had, and all of the excitement of a bath, people swarming around him, new dogs everywhere, I can't really blame him. He did really well overnight; no messes. The only issue so far is he wants to chase the cat, and the cat wants none of it.

Big, happy boy looking for a home with no cats. Would love another dog, but not necessary. Needs exercise and obedience training. He's like a big, smiley polar bear!

Dodger seems to have a pretty high prey drive. In addition to seeming to have a HIGH interest in the cat, he's also interested in squirrels. He spotted one walking across the roof, and tried to climb up the side of the house to get it!
