Slinky Dog

Hi! My Name Is Slinky Dog

We're happy to tell you that Slinky Dog has a new furever home.
Please visit our Available Dogs Page to see the pups currently available.

Slinky Dog has a good amount of separation anxiety that will need patience and work to assure him when his person leaves they will come back. He does not do well in a crate and is able to escape an open pen. Best case scenario for him is to attend a doggy daycare on a regular basis to continue to work on his ability to "dog."

Sleeping in a big pile of towels or a big pillow is so comforting, but his most favorite place is sleeping in bed snugging all night long. Don't mind him touching, even just a small amount, he wants to make sure you are near and safe.

Slinky Dog is leash trained and really enjoys the outdoors as long as there are no loud noises. He will startle easily and if you do not have a good hold on leash he could get away from you. His current foster lives in the country which has helped with his anxiety about outside time.

Potty training is a work in progress, but he is really close. He still has a few accidents if someone is not paying attention but if he can be on a regular potty schedule he will not have any troubles. He is learning to go to the door to alert his people that he needs a potty break.

Since he is a puppy, he really enjoys playing with his toys and would probably do well with another younger pup in the home. He is not a huge fan of cats but may come around to being a playmate. Chew bones and cloth toys are his jam.
