|Rescue Group: SPDR|
DogId: Micah (WA#3069)
Age: 5 yr - 10 yrs
Location: Port Orchard, WA
Micah, like Bear would be an excellent companion dog for a solitary person. He isn't the kind of dog that is comfortable meeting strangers. It can be stressful for him and for the handler, so why do it? Someone who is around home most of the time and who actively worked with him would find him to be a great pal.
As indicated earlier, he is not good around youth, due to his being teased by a bunch of them in his original circumstances.
He loves to lay on the front porch, or under a tree when the weather is good, watching for any trespassing squirrel or other interloper. He'll come like a streak when it's time for the daily routines.
Age: 6 years
Good with other dogs: Pretty much keeps to himself, doesn't go out of his way to engage (which is good!)
Thing to do: Develop a proper cooperative relationship with Micah, allowing him to trust the handler in all situations.
Fun things to do: He loves to play ball and tug-of-war. Watch him get funny - enjoy his antics. Go hiking together in the boonies. Put him on rodent patrol.
Micah has a we/they view of the world and will flourish in a situation where this is understood by his adopter. The Packworks (www.packworks.org) folks in Arlington Washington will be part of your introduction (and will elaborate on we/they as being a breed characteristic rather than an anomaly) and handling training.
Micah is SPDR affiliated with an adoption donation of $150. If his resume is of interest to you, please fill out the online adoption application
