51330 – T-Bone
Why choose me?
Update 7/5: T-Bone was in a foster home with a cat and another dog, but tends to be a little too interested in the cat, so now he’s back at the shelter.
What we know about T-Bone from his recent foster home:
1) He’s fully housebroken, will go to the door and alert when he needs to go
2) He knows sit, down, wait, and takes treats gently
3) With proper introduction and supervision, plays well with other dogs
4) Super high food drive and toy drive. He loves all the toys we got him.
5) He has made great strides on crating. He does suffer from separation distress IMO and it takes him some time to settle if he’s not in the same room as the humans
6) He shouldn’t be in a house with cats.
7) He’s a great bed buddy and loves to be the little spoon!
T-Bone’s Doggy-Day-Out Update 5/25: T-Bone had an awesome “Doggy Day Out” today! He went hiking, dipped his paws in the water, and enjoyed some fresh air! He was a perfect little passenger in the car, walked great on the leash, and after got to get some nugz from all the dogs’ favorite place, Chick-fil-A Barnett Shoals ! T-Bone is available for adoption! He is neutered, up to date on rabies, house broken, annnnnd loves car rides! He met a few people on the trail and did fine, but when a man reached out to pet him, he barked and hid behind me, so he may need a little help with his confidence. He’s looking for a home that can allow him to feel secure and be the best boy ever. Come meet him today at Athens-Clarke County Animal Control!
Update 5/13: Thanks to donations to the Spay/Neuter Fund, T-Bone is neutered and up-to-date on his basic vaccinations!
Update 4/30: T-Bone isn’t the first dog you’ll notice at the shelter, even though he’s in the first kennel. He tends to hang back a little, quietly watching the folks walking by. He can be a little shy at first even once he’s out, but sit quietly for a few minutes and T-Bone will come over to sneak a taste. Yes, a taste–T-Bone is a gourmand, enjoying licking to explore the world instead of the more usual sniffing. While my spending time with him today was an accident, it was a happy one that I look forward to repeating!
T-Bone is a gentle, timid dog. He was petrified when he was surrendered but is feeling more at ease every day. Once I gained his trust, he was leaning against me as I petted him and coming to me when I patted my leg and called him. He’s so sweet, and I love his red brindle coat. T-Bone’s former owner said he’s house trained and loves kids. He’s been around children ages one to nineteen. He’s a good dog who wants to be loved. If you’re looking for a mild-mannered buddy, T-Bone is perfect!
