Interesting character, I am. I was adopted out as a pup and returned three years later. SCARS was told I kept climbing the fence, which was true, but there’s a lot more about me that makes me difficult to adopt out. I am an incredibly nervous guy; one could say fearful. When I first arrived at SCARS I was so upset about the move it took over a week before I would even come out of my dog house. My foster mom would just sit in my run and I would just growl at her. I was one bitter guy. Eventually it was time to suck it up and make friends. Fast forward a couple months and now I’m super loyal, will not leave her side. I am great with other dogs, house and crate trained and great off leash.
Now here is what makes me not so adoptable. I am so fearful that leaving the property makes me very upset. For example, taking me to the vet was a experience, and not a good one. Everything freaks me out: thunder storms, machines, pops (that sound like gun shots), and sometimes it’s nothing — I just feel like being upset. I will run all the way home on a walk if something scares me, or I try crawling into your skin for safety.
Here’s the good news my foster family here at the SCARS Sanctuary Animal facility loves me and I am happy here. I cause no problems with other dogs or people that visit so I am welcome to stay.
I’m a Sanctuary Animal
What’s a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioural issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family.
SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities.
We look to businesses to sponsor Sactuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them.
