54145 – Capone
Update 9/16: To find out what a wonderful dog Capone is, it’s best to go to one of the back interaction pens away from all the noise. Give him a little time to get over his shyness, and if you happen to have a squeaky toy, give it a squeeze and watch him light up. Capone LOVES squeaky toys, and although he’s five years old and a little chunky, he’ll charge after one and run with it, kicking up his heels in joy. I used two toys to keep our game going since he’s not really interested in giving them back, so once he had a toy, I’d throw another, and he’d drop the first one to chase the other. We had a blast, and when our playtime was over, Capone was ready for all the back scratches I could give him. I enjoy spending time with Capone, and I’m always pleased with how well he walks on a leash. He’s a great companion for leisurely walks. I love this sweet, fun boy and hope someone else discovers what a great dog he is and takes him home!
Capone is the sweetest dog. He’s frightened to be at the pound, so I was told it’s best to leave his leash on him. At first, he’d move away when I neared, but with time, I earned his trust. He found safety beneath the picnic table and was too scared to leave his comfort zone to get water from the bucket at the fence, so I brought it to him and sat on the bench scratching his back as he lapped it up. He decided I must be okay and started coming to me when I called him. I had him meet sweet Sage at the fence and that seemed to help him feel more comfortable, too. Capone actually walks nicely on a leash, so we walked to one of the back pens so he could get away from the noise. I kept thinking, “What a gentle, sweet dog. How could someone not be looking for him?” He was found wearing his harness and dragging a leash. He’s microchipped and was adopted from ACCAS, but his original adopter rehomed him, and his microchip information was never updated. Capone is a good boy. He really wants to go home, and I hope he’s reunited with his family or finds a new family where he feels safe and loved.
