As Bandit has started to settle in his personality has started to sprout. He has a kind and gentle way to him despite all his whimpers.    The first few days were the toughest for him. New home, new people, new dogs to get used to. He initially wouldn’t  even go in his kennel he was so apprehensive and would howl and shake about. We started to feed him in there and praise him to let him know that’s a safe spot. He goes in there with no problems now. He would prefer not to but it isn’t forced anymore.    We have taken him off his prescription anxiety pills. He’s not completely at ease but he is much more mellow and can calm down quicker than he did in those first few days. He’s on the composure treats and he loves those!! They definitely help and I feel better about those on a daily basis vs the prescription.     He gets along great with everyone and every pet. I think he would be most comfy in a home where he is center of attention. (The girls (our dogs) can sometimes amp up his hyper activity). With that being said they do help keep each other entertained in the yard so having other pets isn’t a deal breaker. He’s starting to take interest in a ball now and hopefully will learn to bring it back.    At night he was sleeping with our youngest but he literally takes up the whole bed and I didn’t feel that was the best for anyone to get sleep next to. So we put him in a kennel at night. There are some whimpers and howls for a few minutes but he quickly goes to bed and waits for 6:00 am when he is ready to start the day! Yes Bandit is an early riser.  We haven’t had any trouble with accidents in the house. He knows all the basic commands. On his runs he is very responsive to the e- collar. We are really trying to get his weight down. I’m hoping we can get some long hikes in while the girls are away on hunting trips over the next few weeks.    He is such a sweet heart. One of the best fosters (besides my favorite Max) that we have had the pleasure of helping with. I am positive in the right home his anxiety can be controlled and comforted. Whomever adopts him will need to continue to work with him, in the few weeks we have had him he has improved tremendously. I hope we can get him a permanent home soon so he can finally feel at ease.  show less

Update as of 10/11/21: Kobe likes to sleep in the living room at night even though he could sleep in the bedroom with his foster mom and Precious.  He doesn't really cuddle with his foster mom but it could be that Precious likes all the attention. He doesn't seem to care if he is not getting the attention.   After having them in rescue for a couple of months, we believe that they do not need to be adopted together since they do not act like a typical bonded pair.  They are very independent and do not rely on each other. They do not cuddle or even lie near each other. Bio update 10/3/21: Kobe and Precious's adoption fee has been sponsored so we wil be waving the aodption fee for the bonded pair for an approved adopter(s).  We are also willing to adopt them out seprately if you are only able to aodpt one of them.  We prefer to keep them together but we know not everyone is setup to take in two dogs at the sametime.   They are both really good dogs in the home.  They do need to be placed in an only dog home.  We will adopt to approved adopters in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa.   Meet our bonded pair, Kobe and Precious (littermates) Kobe and Precious were surrendered to a shelter due to their family moving and not able to take them along.  Kobe and Precious were quick to learn the daily routine. Walk time, bed time, eat time, potty time. They have adjusted quite well to their foster home since they were very stressed in the shelter where they were orgainlly surrender to.  In fact-even the first night and every night thereafter once everyone winds down, they find their spot on the couch (each has a side) and they relax. It seems that they may have gained a pound or two even. Precious was a bit underweight but now looks good!   Personality: Kobe is a bit more laid back. He was first to snuggle, and loves him tummy rubbed. He will lay down pretty much anywhere and patiently wait for the move to the next room. He loves to go on walks and sniff around. Precious is a diva at times, but is quick to lay her head down on my leg and want pets. If Kobe has her toy she playfully barks. He knows it and teases her a bit. They share toys very well, and take turns with no problems.  Precious loves carrying aroun stuffed animals. She is very freindly to everyone she meets.   They have not been kenneled in my home, and his foster mom has not had any issues. It has only been over a week, but they have not chewed anything or had accidents in the hosue, although their foster home is somewhat dog-proof. They did roam-free at their previous home as well. They are both good are very calm around children and will not jump on them. They ride well in the car.  Their foster mom feeds them about 10 ft apart, but they have not shown any food guarding.  The rescue was told that they should not be with other dogs ooutside each other, they both had incidents with other dogs at the shelter.  Their foster mom does notice they will bark when they see another dogs walking by them and they have barked at runners. We would love to find a home without dogs that would aodpt them together.  They have been together their whole life since they are littermates. Please consider opening up your home to Kobe and Precious. show less

Update from foster parent: Precious is close cuddler to humans.  She does not cuddle with her brother Kobe. She likes to sleep in her foster mom's bed at night She does get jealous if her foster mom is giving attention to Kobe. She likes to bark at cars when out on walks.
