Do you have the right stuff for our “Special Needs” dog Cletus?
You should have excellent dog handling skills and a good understanding of canine behavior.
He has some issues that we are working with, but he would likely do better in a stable home environment.
Cletus came to us as a stray in a very malnourished and underweight state.
He can act protective of his food bowl, treats and his personal space by growling and baring his teeth at times.
This is very likely due to his lack of food and comfort during the beginning of his life.
He needs a special adopter who has worked with protective dog issues before and feels confident in training such dogs.
Cletus just needs a chance and a patient person to help give him the life he deserves.
He can be very loving and sweet to those that gain his trust.
Cletus loves to run “zoomies” in the play yards to have fun and has a big smile when he is happy.
He loves walking on a leash and checking out all the scents along the path you travel.
Cletus knows some basic commands and just needs the right home and owner to help him progress.
Cletus is not for the first-time dog owner but with a special adopter Cletus has the potential to do very well.
We aren’t ever going to give up on him. We know his forever person is out there and we hope you contact us soon!
