Homer will remain in the Recovery Room until cleared for adoption.
Homer was a puppy mill dog and came to RMCR from a shelter where he was not doing well. Homer was put into the shelter along with 38 other mill dogs . He did not adjust well with shelter life and became very fearful and stressed. Now that he is in a great foster home and has a friendly dog buddy to teach him the ropes, he is already learning about love and trust. He is going to need more time in his foster home before he is fully ready to face the outside world.
Darling Homer, is 30 lbs. He is apprehensive about humans. He is not well potty trained but is working on it. He has separation anxiety and needs to be crated when you leave the home. He does not do well in the crate while you are home, and it can make him very anxious. He prefers to sleep in a bed. He will approach you for cuddles and snuggles but doesn’t desire to be approached. In foster care, we are working on reducing anxiety and helping with his skin allergies. He is responding well, but will need continued care.
He requires a relatively quiet home and space for adequate “down time” as he can get easily overstimulated. He does well with other dogs as well as cats and walks well on a leash. He’s a lover once he trusts you. He will require an owner who can work with him to teach him basic commands to keep him safe.
