Dog of the Week

Dog Name: Percy
Age: 6-12 mos.
Color: Black
Gender: Male

Percy is our puppy of the month, now in our foster care in Littleton, S. Denver area. He loves other dogs and people. He is crate trained and housebroken. Percy spent nearly three months incarcerated in a S. Texas shelter where he literally grew up in a cage. There were very few, if any, walks. Percy had to bounce off the fencing to give him something to do to dispel some energy. He was in a horrible situation for any dog, but especially one with lots of energy. Now, Percy enjoys his daily walks and is very well behaved on his harness and leash. He is on a daily training regimen known as “positive reinforcement training”. He is responding well and has a healthy respect for a water squirt bottle. After being cooped up for his young life almost everything is very interesting. His most inquisitive looks come when a flock of geese flies overhead. Percy is almost too smart for his own good and we are wondering if he might be a candidate to be a service dog. He has an incredible nose, especially for candy and cookies hidden away in our kids’ bedrooms. He loves his play dates when other dogs come to visit and would benefit from a larger romping buddy in his new home. He socializes well with our dog, a terrier mix. But Percy is much younger and a bit too rambunctious for him. As a puppy, Percy is so full of love and our middle school aged kids like his attention.
