ADOPTION FEE: $250
Wolfie has been a pretty typical foster. He has settled relatively well into pack life, although he is large and in charge and will happily sass dogs of all sizes, even friends who normally play with him. He ignores the cats, seems to be house trained minus some dominant marking, and is quiet except when waiting for meals. However, a typical foster does not always make for an adoptable dog, and Wolfie's several meetings have not gone well. Despite our warnings of him being afraid of, uncomfortable with, and hiding from new people, some folks have come out to see for themselves and have left empty-handed. Wolfie does not like, and may never grow to like, strangers or new environments. He does not like to be leashed or harnessed and does not like going for walks or rides in the car. He is not, and may never be, a lap dog or a snuggler, and only comes to his foster mom occasionally for pets or playtime.
So who would be a good fit to take Wolfie home? Maybe no one: we have already accepted the possibility that life's hardships have taken a permanent toll on Wolife, and he may never leave foster care. However, someone with patience and understanding for fearful dogs may find themselves absolutely loving this silly, soft little nugget, and Wolfie could end up with a real family of his own. A fenced yard is a must, and small children are a no-go, but an experienced adopter with low expectations is very welcome to give this little guy a chance! We think he deserves it.
