My story

My story

Happy is a lively boy at the age of one. His previous owner was unable to continue taking care of h im due to financial difficulties and having to move overseas. After being unable to find a new hom e for Happy, his owner contacted the Pack for help. Happy is currenty being trained and evaluated by a foster family, and though he is a bit mischievious, he is also clever and learns things quickly. Are you willing to give him a chance?

Happy

Personality

Happy doesn’t hide his emotions, and will bark a warning if a stranger gets too close. Give him f ive minutes to make sure you aren’t a threat, and then he will happily beg you to pet him by sho ving his head in your hand. Happy is a bit sensitive, and prefers to dodge or escape if provoked. G ive him some time to adapt and it won’t be a problem.

My Behavior

My Behavior

Happy barks as a warning, and has the makings of a wonderful guard dog. Treats and food don’t entice Happy, especially when he’s nervous or in an unfamiliar environment. He loves playing w ith other dogs. He sometimes plays with humans by gently nipping, but can’t quite control his str ength; it is something we are still working on.

Tolerance Levels

At PACK Academy, we socialize our dogs by exposing them to different stimuli and recording their tolerance levels for each one. These oservations help us understand the dogs better, which then helps us find suitable homes for them.

Strangers
