Sully is a 10 month old Shepherd/Boxer mix. He only weighs about 40 lbs so he's a relatively small dog. He arrived on November 29, 2017. If you are interested in adopting Sully after he completes his training, please contact Pugh Zoo Rescue at email@example.com.
Week 1. Sully has adjusted very well to his new surroundings and his handler says he is doing great. He is really great with people and dogs, unless the other dog approaches in an aggressive manner, in which case he will go from 0-100 immediately. This is the behavior that most needs work. He has already learned his cues/commands sit, down and stay. He loves to run and play in the yard. So far so good with Sully. And I have to say he has got the most beautiful eyes!
Week 2. Sully is such a wonderful dog. He really doesn't have any major (or minor) issues. His handler says he doesn't see any barriers to him being adopted right now. He does well with all people and all the dogs. He is a loving and playful boy. We do want to keep him in the program for a few more weeks just to be sure no issues arise. But if you are interested in this beautiful boy, contact his Rescue (listed above). It's never too early to submit an adoption application!!
Week 3. Sully continues to do very well and he like nothing more than playing with the other dogs. The only time he reacts if if another dog reacts negatively to him. He is a little shy with new people but if you have a treat to give him, then you are is friend. He has learned and his cues/commands (sit, down, wait, stay). He loves running, does well with leash walking and LOVES to chase the ball. His handler says he sees no concerns or barriers to adoption. And no new issues have surfaced, which is great.
Week 4. Sully continues to improve every day. He loves his outside time playing with the other dogs and is showing much less shyness with new people. He is doing very well learning his cues/commands.
Week 5. Sully's handler says "Sully is an awesome dog". He does very well with other dogs and people, although he takes a little time to warm up and trust them. Sully loves to run and play with the ball. Sully will definitely need an active person or family, as he has a lot of energy.
Week 6. Sully continues to get better. His initial shyness when meeting new people seems to be subsiding, although it's still there. Sully is great with all his cues/commands (sit, down, wait, stay, leash walking). He is such a playful dog.
