(CJ is the black and tan tricolour dog in the photos below)
C.J. has been with CCRT since January 2016 and he is very comfortable with his foster family. His foster Mom has been working with him to get him comfortable in stressful situations. He has decided that cuddling is a good thing and will snuggle under the covers with his foster Mom. He still prefers to lie beside her when snuggling on the sofa, etc.
C.J. now walks on leash very well and is very attentive to his foster Mom, watching carefully to see what she wants from him. Unfamiliar loud noises, outside and inside, are still very frightening for him. As his trust increased, C.J. also learned to respond to verbal correction. He usually comes when he is called.
His housetraining is much improved. He will do his business outside during a walk and most of his pees are done on pee pads indoors. Unfortunately, C.J. walks while he poos so even if he starts on the pee pad, there is regularly a little trail that ends up on the floor.
C.J. has just started eating meals with his foster fur siblings. He does not always get that he doesn’t need to protect his food but with correction (being a time out) he is getting better.
When people come to the foster home’s door, C.J. goes on harness and leash so that he cannot attack the person’s legs. C.J. needs slow movements in the initial greeting with treats being given to him by the visitor. It take him lots of time to warm up but if given that time, C.J. will take a treat gently from the visitors hand. His furever home should not have young and/or high energy children or dogs.
C.J. is a barker and needs a house with a backyard to run off some energy.
If you feel that your home fits the bill and you have the love, time and patience to continue teaching C.J. to be the best little boy he can be, please complete an online adoption application form.
You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for him, or any of our other fosters dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our foster dogs by making a cash donation towards their care.
