Meet Disney

Disney (AKA Walt) is a very sweet and loyal dog. He loves having a job, treat puzzles, or goofing around with his human companion. He's even housebroken! Walt quickly became comfortable in his foster home environment and is usually right by my side or running around with his favorite squeaky toys. His ideal person is someone who will be patient with him as he learns to adjust to his new permanent life and home. He would do best in an environment without children and would be thrilled to have a fenced-in backyard. He LOVES to play with other dogs or by himself with some fun toys. He's a pro at throwing the ball for himself. In his ideal home, he would need a dog companion who is more passive when it comes to resources (toys, bones, etc.). He also does well with cats and is receptive to them telling him to back off, but is still learning some cat etiquette (they are not just weird-looking dogs).

Given his young age, some of his manners are a work in progress (being receptive to cues when playing with other dogs, dropping toys, etc.), otherwise, he has nothing but love and devotion to give! Some of his behaviors like flinching if approached too quickly or fear of loud noises are likely due to some form of mistreatment in his previous life. However, the good news is that he has so much to offer and is willing to trust someone to show him what he has been missing! With the right person or family, he can truly become the perfect pet, show dog, working dog, agility star, or any role he is given the time and encouragement to adapt to. He already has so many great qualities, like sleeping through the night, doesn't bark unless there's a reason to, and is a great cuddler, but the possibilities are endless!

Walt is ready for his last stop on his journey and is eager to have love and security for his many years of life to come. With continued training, patience, and encouragement he will be able to heal from his past and thrive in his future. He already has quite a few commands mastered and is very food-motivated, thus making him the perfect student! If you are someone who enjoys training, routines, and connecting with your dog companion, Walt is the perfect guy for you!
