About Guero

Guero A218743 Guero is a 1.5 year old spayed male who came into the shelter on 8/24 as an owner surrender. Handling 8/30: https://youtu.be/coK_sUJ0Ffs Handling: https://youtu.be/SrZoM11-Wzw This Guero’s second time at the shelter this summer. He came in as a stray and was returned to his owner in July; that same owner brought him back because of “landlord issues”. Well, Guero is just as handsome and silly as ever - but understandably a little confused as to why he’s back. Guero is easy to leash up but definitely pulls a bit once outside. He allows for handling all over and takes treats nicely. Look at that face! He’s such a looker, he makes you just want to smush his little compact body. Per his owner, Guero lived with other dogs - but here at the shelter Guero has been very dog reactive. It’s something we will contribute to work on, but for now Guero should be the only animal in a home. But look at that smile?! What else could you need?

Bo A219509 Bo is a 7 month old neutered male who came into the shelter on 8/16 as an owner surrender. Handling 8/26: https://youtu.be/ZAYP_qZ8i7I Handling 8/25: https://youtu.be/skCXWxNnQWs Handling 8/25: https://youtu.be/KEzVlJihRZI Handling video: https://youtu.be/diD9AL39Pa0 Bo is cute right! He’s also extremely smart which makes him a poor fit for shelter life. He’s easy to leash but immediately starts grabbing the leash. He’s bored and looking for a game to play anywhere he can. Bo already knows sit and is very food motivated. Within minutes, we had a system down to work on his attention jumping where he was sitting on sound alone. Smart boy! Bo also picked up fetch like a professional athlete! It’s hard to believe he’s so young. He loves attention and allowed handling all over and excelled with positive encouragement. The big but comes out when he gets frustrated though and his youthful inexperience shows. He uses his mouth to communicate, its not uncommon but can be misinterpreted by people. For that reason cute Bo can’t go into any home. He will need an experienced family that is 100% dedicated to ongoing training. Bo wants to learn and likes the work. You know the old saying idle paws are the devils workshop, well the saying is hands but the concept applies to puppies too. show less

Kobe A220483 Kobe is a 2 year old neutered male who came into the shelter on 9/4 as a stray. Handling 9/7: https://youtu.be/xCta9iLCWuY Handling: https://youtu.be/IWlF26LaUbk Leash Test: https://youtu.be/I31fqWCKn1s Kobe is just a puppy, came in as a stray, fearful yet granted trust to me almost immediately. He acted as though he had never seen a leash, dodged my leash for about five minutes in his kennel, but once I leashed him he walked alongside of me with some trepidation, but decided to trust me and follow me. Once outdoors, he looked around at the play yard as though he had never seen anything like it before! It’s heartbreaking when dogs prefer to walk on concrete because they’ve never felt grass under their feet before. That was my suspicion about Kobe. When he walked on the grass, he moved rapidly to get off of it, once his feet hit concrete, he seem to feel safer, my heart broke because it’s possible, that he was kept outdoors on concrete and perhaps he had never felt grass on his feet before! Heart wrenching to think about that. He deserves a backyard to romp in and play in and a roll on his back in the grass whenever he so chooses. Is that your yard? Do you have a yard for him? I promise he will be forever grateful to you and those precious eyes of his, will stare up at you gratefully for the rest of his life! Come meet Kobe !! show less
