Foster Home Feedback
Feedback on Feller's dog-friendliness: While Feller is currently in a foster home with a small dog, he does not get along with dogs his size or bigger than him. He has spent time in a home with a dog around 40 lbs and got along with that dog. We believe Feller can live with a small dog who will give him his space. He is not a dog who will make a good playmate for another dog. Feller wouldn't do well at a dog park and is not a dog that can be introduced to friends and family's dogs. Feller would prefer to live out his twilight years being an only dog or having a small, calm dog companion!
9/15/21: Mr. Feller has been with us for a few months now and is such a sweet boy. He continues to be every human's friend. He is very laid back. Feller likes to follow you around with his toy but will just rest at your feet. He picks a favorite toy and loves that thing until it can’t be a toy anymore. As the earlier post said, Feller does seem to enjoy the company of smaller companions better. He does well with his 5lb Chihuahua and a cat roommate. They are a pretty laid back crew though. Feller wouldn’t do well with a high energy dog either. Feller has been around several groups of kids in the last few months and he has done very well. He is on a joint supplement that he takes daily and Rimadyl for pain as needed but since starting those meds, he has been moving great. Stairs are not an issue and he still loves his short walks. He knows some commands and is very treat motivated. He does well with baths and being brushed. He still goes in the crate when we are gone and we haven’t had any issues with that. Feller would love to meet you and have you pet his little head.
7/16/21: We have had this sweet old man for a few days and it’s hard not to fall in love with him. Feller is 8 years old and acts his age most of the time but still likes a good game of fetch. He is always happy and excited to see you. I don’t know that he has ever met a person he doesn’t like. Feller greets everyone nicely; he’s a pretty laid-back guy. He enjoys going for walks but likes to stick to the shorter ones. He does great on a leash and doesn’t pull or bark on our walks. He seems to be a little stiff in the morning and doesn’t enjoy stairs. Feller might enjoy a place with a smaller amount of stairs as he gets older. He has started on medication that helps with stiffness. He has been moving around better since he has been on them.
Feller loves his food and treats. He hasn’t shown any food or toy aggression. He gets along with our other dog and the cat well and they aren’t the friendliest pair. I don’t think he has spent a lot of time in a crate before. He is sad when he goes in there but is getting better about it.
Feller doesn’t bark, just has a quiet whine. He sleeps in his dog bed at night and boy, is he a good sleeper. Once he lays down, he’s out for the night. Feller is looking for a family to enjoy his golden years.
