Togo

A Male Canadian presently Adopted

Togo here, back at Animatch.  I was adopted by a very kind family but unfortunately because of my resource guarding issues, my adoption did not work out.  I understand that this face brought in a “ton” of applications last time I was up for adoption; but, many of you applied for “the look” and did not read my bio or take into account whether I would fit in with your family.  This time it is even more important that you educate yourself on *resource guarding” and be willing to work with a trainer and rehabilitate me.  There is a wonderful, friendly, intelligent dog under this cute exterior just waiting to emerge.  If you feel that you have the experience, meet the requirements, and are ready for the work ahead, then and only then should you complete the Adoption Form.  If you applied previously, please do not fill in another form; just let us know you are still interested (using the “Contact” form on website).

"Resource guarding refers to a dog displaying behavior (growling, snapping, etc.) intended to convince other dogs or humans to stay away from a particular treasure or “resource.”  The resource can be food, treats, toys, a place (a bed or favorite chair), or occasionally a person.  Basically, a resource is anything that is considered by the dog to be of high value."

 

My wish for 2018 is that every human treat man’s best friend (that would be me and all my canine buddies) with the love, attention, and respect that they deserve.  I’m certain other dogs have wished for this in days gone by but lo and behold, it doesn’t seem to be anywhere near happening.  As we celebrate this new year by blowing the noisemakers and raising a toast, let’s remember qualities that you admire most in dogs – courage, trust, and loyalty – are traits worth cultivating by humans. 

No pup (my age is estimated to be 10 months) should have to go through what I have.  First, I am found wandering aimlessly by a family and although they tried to keep me, it simply didn’t work out.  Understand, I am still a puppy, so I need someone dedicated to continuing my training and giving me plenty of guidance. Being that I am a sensitive and gentle pup, I would prefer an adult home or one with older children who know how to treat a shy dog.  I am sweet, gentle and eager to trust but I’m not there yet.  I’m not one to boast but Josh, from Canine Education, says that I am coming out of my shell – even taking treats, showing affection, and responding to some basic commands.  Continued obedience training would go a long way to boosting my confidence.  A home where I am not alone all days would suit me best.  Well then, I don’t mean to cut this short, but I think it’s time for you to give this some thought and if you know that you are ready for a 12 to 15-year commitment, then hurry up and fill in the Adoption Form.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it.
