52481 – Damu
Update 12/30: Damu got to spend some time in a foster home this past week and we learned so much about him! He walks nicely on the leash and had amazing house manners. His favorite task was attempting to be a lap dog. Breaks from the shelter are so beneficial for the dogs, and we get to learn so much more about them in a home setting.
Update 10/7: Damu is a major people pleaser who’s up for whatever you want to do whether it’s playing with toys, being loved on, or practicing basic commands (he’s a pro at sitting for treats!). He didn’t even mind wearing a little costume–he nailed it as a gentle lion. Damu is a great buddy, and he’s waiting to meet you!
I found out quickly after I arrived that Damu is a fan favorite and somewhat of a celebrity among the animal control staff. He was hanging out behind the counter with the staff, being a dude, and socializing. The staff was petting him, and he was quite content to keep an eye on the comings and goings and just relax. He walked well on the leash as we left the air conditioned confines of the building and went out to the interaction pen. He is a very calm, low key dog, and he enjoyed just hanging out with me. If you are looking for a friend to hangout with I think that Damu might be your guy.
