Local Foster moms report:
“Woody arrived last weekend and immediately settled in - he met the dogs, the cat and two preteen girls and didn’t bat an eye. He’s a solid, stable citizen!”
Woody Woof is a fun, playful boy. He is very social with other dogs and loves playing chase. He loves all dogs of all sizes, but he doesn’t know his strength and plays too rough for the little ones, so his pen mates are a standard poodle puppy and an Aussie puppy.
Woody was dumped in a wooded area (hence the name Woody) with about 14 other puppies and survived on their own for some time. Woody had been hit by a car, so he was easy to catch. Luckily, he only had road rash and some bruises. Due to all this time on his own, his social skills are a work in progress. Once he knows a person, he is very affectionate and feels completely at ease with them. He is doing well in crate training but will bark at first when he is put in but will settle down.
Woody loves his people once he gets to know them. He is leery of strangers and will bark at new people. We are working on that. He is very motivated and loves all treats. He walks on a leash but pulls a little bit. He ignores his foster super senior cats in the house, but they hardly move or run. So, we are not sure if he would chase a younger cat.
This boy will do well in an active home. He needs a home that will continue his social training. He loves the backyard and running with his friends.

ATTENTION PUPPY ADOPTERS: You will be required to attend training/behavior classes with your new dog unless you are an experienced dog owners and your adoption coordinator is comfortable with your experience. This requirement is for the benefit of you and your puppy so if you experience behavior issues you have a point of contact.
PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please consider purchasing this book before adopting. Perfect Puppy in 7 Days - How to Start Your Puppy Off Right, Sophia Yin, DVM - it is an amazing book that we recommend very highly and have had amazing feedback on.
