We are switching things up a bit this week to give our followers an opportunity to meet a dog that is living in a foster home. Foster homes are so wonderful for shelter dogs for a lot of reasons, one being that it offers the opportunity to learn much more about the dog to give potential adopters a full picture of who the dog is, what he/she likes or dislikes, and how they interact with people, other dogs etc. With that being said, say hello to Champ!
This five-year-old dream boat was rescued TWO YEARS AGO from MCACC and has been living in a home where he now gets to experience the finer things in life: walks, hikes, snow, life in the mountains, sunbathing, car rides, lounging on the couch, coffee dates, binge watching Chopped, etc. Champ is the perfect companion for you if you want a true partner in crime. He is always up for an outing, but really, as long as he gets to be with you, he’s a happy camper.
Champ does really well as an only dog. He is good with kiddos over 10 (he plays a little too rough for young children) and is happy to meet strangers with proper introductions! This pup is up-to-date on shots, neutered, and is in good health! He is kennel trained, house trained and already knows basic commands. Champ is also working with a trainer to increase his skill level. One Love AZ has evaluated Champ and he is one of the “adoptable” dogs from their Foundation. They get to know their dogs very well and they work hard to make sure they find the best match for each dog. If One Love puts their stamp of approval on him you know he’s a sure bet!
While Champ may have the ideal set up for a foster home, it is still a “foster” home and ultimately a forever home is the goal. SO, if you have been thinking about adopting, but find yourself a bit intimidated by the idea of bringing home a pup straight from the shelter, Champ could be the guy for you! His foster mom can tell you everything you need to know about him and set you up for success!
