Foster Home Feedback
* Wallen requires medication for anxiety. The cost of this medication is around $80.00 per month.
* NO Cats; Not apartment-friendly
9/26/21: When Wallen first came to us, he was a wreck with his separation anxiety and his fear of the kennel. He has come a long way since that point. He is on one medication for his remaining anxiety but he now kennels himself voluntarily in the morning and lays down in it. When we get home Wallen stands up to greet us and 90% of the time comes out nicely (he gets a little excited sometimes when it has been a long day or when he sees our other dog, but who wouldn’t get a little excited to see people then). Most of his days are spent with a little playtime and a lot of cuddling. No amount of cuddles is too much. If you sit down expect Wallen to sit next to you and snuggle in until you get up. He is a great dog and will thrive in a household that has some routine or in one that would take the time to work with him.
6/30/21: Wallen has come a long way with his separation anxiety being in our care. He now will walk into the kennel willingly and is even laying in it when we get home. He still has some trouble being kenneled when he knows you are home, but I mean who wouldn’t want to be part of the fun if you are there. He spends most of the day alternating between playing with our dog or napping and snuggling with us. If he could have a bone, a couch, and someone to love him he would be as happy as he could be. He is an absolute sweetheart and will make a great addition to someone’s home and be the best friend you could ever ask for.
5/22/21: Wallen’s a big lover boy, settled into our house quickly. He was flipped over upside down on our couch within an hour of getting here. He does have separation anxiety and cries when left in a kennel and can be destructive of anything he can reach. We’ve been using Traz, an oil diffuser, and Adaptil, and he’s been doing better. He still has anxiety but isn’t breaking out of the heavy-duty kennel anymore. He doesn’t urinate or poop in the kennel, he’s just anxious. Wallen would do fantastic in a house with a routine, or someone home often.
Wallen gets along fantastically with my 70lb Lab, and he’s met two smaller Golden Doodles. When he’s out of the kennel, he gets little bursts of energy and plays with my Lab, then comes and lays on the couch and naps for a while. He’s super excitable when meeting other dogs and people. He doesn’t get along well with cats, so no cats in the home. I would not suggest younger children, as he does jump up often.
Overall, Wallen’s a sweetheart and would do well in a home that is willing to work with him and has experience with anxiety and jumping manners.
5/5/21 Volunteer Feedback: I had the pleasure of watching Wallen for a few days this week. He is such a sweet guy. He loves attention, pets, and snacks. He took treats so gentle from my kids. He is quick to make himself at home and found the dog toys to amuse himself. Wallen walked at a nice leisurely pace, enjoying the scenery.
He does need to work on his manners when encountering others on walks, but walked well alongside my dog. Wallen was a little too interested in my cat, so he would not be a good fit for a home with a cat.
We enjoyed having this snuggle bug around for a couple of days, and I think he would be such a devoted dog to his new family.
5/3/21: Wallen is a great boy whose life's goal, it seems, is to lay on the couch and snuggle with you as much as possible. He really can’t get enough snuggles and loves to just cuddle in after a day at work. He gets along great with our dog, they both play for 10 minutes before calling it quits and crashing on the couch. The closer he is to you, the happier he is. If Wallen could be a 70 lb. lap dog, he would be. He is a great boy and a quick learner. He does have separation anxiety that is being worked on, but being in a forever home with a good routine will help that a lot.
4/29/21 Volunteer Feedback: I had the absolute pleasure of dog-sitting Wally for three days and immediately fell in love with him. Wally is such a good dog and loves to cuddle. He is well-behaved and not aggressive at all. Don’t let his size scare you! He did well with my two dogs. Whoever chooses this guy for his furever home, is not going to be disappointed!!
