50230 – Big Man
Why choose me?
Update 9/13: Unfortunately, Big Man has been returned to the shelter and is once again “technically” our longest resident. He was returned because of how mouthy he was, and how rough he is when he plays.
One year old dogs are still puppy-like in personality, and Big Man is no exception. This guy came from being crated, to being held in a run for several months, so he’ll need to learn some manners! He will need a family *potentially* without small children and with the patience to teach him the right way to do things. He, like anybody who is young (child or dog) needs to learn. He is smart and has the capacity to do so – he just needs someone who’ll give him the time to do so.
Update 8/13: Big Man recently attended a community event with Major and Braelynn. They had a blast meeting new people and playing in the pools. They not only had fun but showed how well they could listen and behave at a public event. Big Man is a friendly dog and loves being with people. He’s always ready for fun and would love to join you on your next adventure!
Update 7/20: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, Big Man is now neutered and up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
Update 7/17: Big Man loves toys and that includes trying new things like leaping across the enrichment bridge. It’s fun but he also likes praise and pleasing his humans!
Update 6/12: Big Man is one fun dog! He loves people, toys, treats, and just being alive! You can’t help but smile with him and boy does he smile. Give Big Man a toy and his antics will make you laugh. Ask him to sit for a treat, and he sits gazing into your eyes waiting for his reward. I absolutely love Big Man and hope he finds a new home where his zest for life is appreciated. He’s got lots of good times to share!
Big Man is neither big nor a man, but he is a medium-sized, friendly 1 year old pup in his last stages of puppyhood. He was a gift to his former owner from a girlfriend; at some point after the girlfriend left, his owner brought Big Man to the shelter to swap him for a pit bull with a bigger head–once she had left, Big Man’s owner no longer wanted him. Big Man is intact, not up-to-date on his rabies vaccination, lived 24/7 in a pen so his former owner has no idea if he is good with cats, dogs, kids, or housetrained. He has significant hair loss and came in with a lot of fleas. Big Man deserves a new home where he can be a part of the family.
