Foster Home Feedback 

11/1/2022 Foster Feedback: We honestly almost foster failed with him. He is quiet, gentle, and a very fast learner. During our time together, he has polished up on sit, down, stay/wait, drop it, leave it, touch, watch me, play dead, shake, wait for food, and find it. He loves to sit and look out of the window and quietly watch squirrels. He also loves playing with our selective pup Razzle. He tamed her in 4 days of parallel walks and they have been playing non stop ever since. They are basically besties.

He is a bit of an escape artist. His forever family will have to have a 6ft fence or be willing to monitor him outside. Even though we have extensively worked on recall, if a squirrel has his attention, there isn’t enough cheese, baby voice, chicken, or peanut butter in the world that will stop him from running away. He won’t go far thankfully since he is distracted by smells, but he wiggled his skinny self right through our wrought iron fence to chase a squirrel two houses down. Now we let him on on a leash and he does a good job going immediately.

We have been practicing with a gentle leader and he walks like a champ. He is very strong and could very easily drag you down the block for a prey animal but for $20, I would recommend a head halter for a pleasant walk. He is not very food motivated, especially on walks but will work hard if he sees you giving treats to another pup!

He’s non reactive to most other dogs, children, strollers, bikes, cars, and joggers. Only whining from some barrier frustration but other wise is a fantastic boy. As for cats, he will still chase my cat, Benny, if he runs but if he’s walking at a normal fat cat pace, Vince will notice but ignore. A dog savvy cat home only, no prey animals would be safe around this natural hunter.
He crates very nicely after about 2 minutes of f.o.m.o. but most of the time after a mile and a half walk, he will go in there to nap without a peep. He does need to potty about every 4-5 hours.

We took him to the Fargo force game and walked laps around the building meeting people. I would love for Vince to find a family with another resident dog to play with, a pup parent that hunts, and has a safe yard to expend energy. Vince has stolen our hearts and he deserves nothing but the best!
