Sawyer continues to wait for
his new forever family. His current family is heartbroken with having to
surrender him, but they can not manage two dogs. Sawyer is very friendly
with all people. He does well with the husband, who does better at managing
both dogs - as he knows how to read the unspoken canine language. Sawyer
knows hand signals and he loves walks and car rides. He runs to the door and
sits when he see his leash - he does the same when his Dad has the car keys.
His Dad reports that Sawyer is very smart and loves to be rewarded with
tasty treats. He is house trained and uses the doggie door. In his previous
life, Sawyer was cat friendly. In his current home, he lives with a rabbit
and pays no mind to it.
Sawyer would be a great addition to your home. Ideally, his new home
would have multiple dog experience with introductions and patience with
transitions. Children are fine as he is great with people, but he would do
best with older children who perhaps had experience communicating with a
deaf dog. Of course, we would prefer a fenced in yard as training on an
invisible fence for a deaf dog can be challenging. Sawyer could also go to a
city home where he will be leashed at all times. Sawyer can live with
another dog that is easy going, as long as his leaders are in charge. That's
you, correct! Please apply today.
Say hello to Sawyer - he is
being surrendered by his owner and coming back to AABR. Sawyer is a
sweet, loving boy and knows all his hand signals. He loves to chase
reflections and shadows in the backyard and will come in with a hand signal.
Being deaf, Sawyer will need patience in order to get adjusted in his new
home. Please apply to foster or adopt Sawyer today!
Sawyer is doing well in his foster home. He knows how to sit, stay, and
come on command. Sawyer loves taking baths and he will jump right into the tub.
He is in foster with a 2 yr old boxer mix female, and is continuing his work
on proper socialization skills. Sawyer is a very happy dog and he loves to
be close to you. Apply today if you are interested in adopting Sawyer!
Hi everyone meet Sawyer, a fine young man who has hit a rather rough
patch on the road of life. Sawyer's family has been having financial
difficulties and illness in the family, which has left Sawyer at the bottom
of the priority list.
He has some very treatable health issues of his own that his family did
not attend to. He has a double ear infection, and demodex (skin condition).
He is undergoing treatment for both at present, and should do very well over
the next few weeks. He is a very happy go lucky guy despite his skin & soar
ears. He is extremely playful, and is doing his best to adjust to his new
life that includes a number of other dogs. He has not been particularly well
socialized, and the females in the house are helping him learn appropriate
pack behavior. He doesn't always seem to get it right away, and we've had a
skirmish or two, but he's doing better every day. He has had so little
training, practically none actually, that it's not surprising he's a little
slow on the uptake, and he'll need a strong leader to help him adjust in his
He is deaf, but that does not detract from the fact that he's a smart
boy, and with the right guidance he should come along in no time. He does
appear to be house & crate trained, and very interested in our resident
feline, but mostly out of curiosity. He seems completely disinterested in
our resident birds.
He had his first social outing to Petsmart, and had a total blast. He
just loved everybody, dogs, adults, and kids included. He gave out several
free sloppy facials to anyone who was at face level. I was really pleased
with his behavior, and he has been sleeping like a rock since he got home.
At this point I recommend a family with kids at least 10 years of age,
solely because of his intense energy level, and lack of training, but this is
one really sweet boy, and he'll be an absolutely AWESOME addition to the
family that is willing to put some time & training into him. He is just a
super guy! If you can't make Sawyer a member of your pack, then maybe you
could make a donation on his behalf? The medications for his ears & skin a
really expensive, and we'd so appreciate any help that you can give, so that
we can continue to help all of the dogs like Sawyer that just need some
time, love, care & understanding.
Please think about giving Sawyer a helping hand, or of becoming the
family that he so deeply deserves.
