Brock was picked up as a stray and landed in a South Carolina shelter where he waited for months before finally being rescued and transported to Vermont to start a new life. Brock is currently in a foster home and has completed level 1 and 2 life skills training. His foster Mom has been working hard to strengthen his skills and help him gain more confidence around new people. While Brock is cuddly, affectionate, and a loyal companion to his people, as he is maturing through the teen stage has become leery and fearful of strangers and can be reactive if he is uncomfortable. Brock is searching for a special adopter, one who appreciates that not all dogs are happy go lucky meeting new people and need some planning and management with interactions while working through this stage.
Brock is very smart, picking up sit, down, stay, come, middle and is progressing nicely with go to mat and loose leash walking with a gentle leader. He is working on maintaining focus in new and/or distracting situations. He loves his crate and is content to chill out in his crate when his human(s) are away or busy. Brock has lived with and gets along with other friendly dogs with proper introductions. With his rough and tumble play style, he should be carefully matched with doggy playmates. He loves going for walks and hikes with other furry friends, and would really enjoy a jogging partner. His favorite game is "tug", and he also loves retrieving the tug toy if you toss it.
Brock would do best in an active adult only home, with breed experience, who will continue training, provide routine and stability, and follow a consistent management plan to help set him up for success as he settles into a new environment. We will provide assistance with matching Brock’s adopter with a trainer and will cover a training class or in-home consults to get Brock off to a good start in his new home.
