Wade was rescued from a puppy mill when he was a year and 3 months old. He came to his foster home frightened and was afraid to be touched. After 4 months, he has learned to trust his foster mom who he follows all around the house and loves when she pets him. He had never seen a toy, but is now beginning to play with them and, like a typical puppy, anything that fits in his mouth is a toy. He is nervous around strangers and will bark and then run into his crate for safety. He has just recently started to come out of his crate and stay next to his mom when strangers are present. He does well with other dogs but will chase cats if they run. He thinks they want to play. He would do best in a quieter home without children. He is working on housetraining but it is a work in progress that his new family should be prepared to continue working on. It should be noted that regular grooming is also necessary for this breed. Because Wade was never socialized growing up, he will need an owner willing to give him the time, patience and opportunities to get familiar with the world. He is a work in progress who will slowly learn to trust and love his new family and then move on to new experiences like a walk in the neighborhood! He escaped a horrible life and is catching up on puppyhood and the good life. His adoption fee is $150 fully vetted. Save Ohio Strays does not have a shelter.
