Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Terry. He was one of 11 puppies born to Mommy Stella on July 20 but one of only 5 who survived the Parvo outbreak. He is a healthy pup now weighing 5 kg at 9 weeks. He has a medium-length coat. His Mom is a golden/lab/retriever and her father is a Red Retriever. He will be about 45 lb when fully grown.
Terry is a really a very clever boy. He is the talker in the group. He communicates with his siblings and his foster family by talking. If he wants a dog to move out of his way, he will bark at him, if wants to be picked up he will bark to be picked up. He has the longest and waviest haircoat of all his siblings. He really enjoys his mealtimes. He plays very well with his siblings. This litter's favourite type of toys is interactive ones. They are brilliant and like toys that make them think. He enjoys being outside and plays outside with the other dogs in her foster home. Gryphon, another puppy currently up for adoption, plays all the time with this litter, though he is 2 weeks older. Odin likes to climb up on the chairs and couches in the living room. Terry likes his air conditioning as his coat is quite thick.. He is the largest of the two boys in he litter.
Terry currently is eating Royal Canin Medium Breed Puppy Food three times a day. He is learning to go outside and is paper-trained. He does quite well in the bathtub and for having his nails done. He does very well in the vehicle in the car and does not get car sick.
Terry has typical Retriever traits including enjoying carrying things in her mouth, playing chase with the other dogs, and being extremely affectionate. He loves to play chase. His favourite toy is the interactive crab.
The ideal home for Terry, is one with a family who will take him to obedience classes and teach him to walk on a body harness and lead. One day, when he is fully bonded and trained with his family, he will be a good candidate to be off-leash at a cottage or on hikes. We are not sure how he will be with birds, but his Mother Stella hates them. As always, a second socialized resident dog in the home is a bonus.
Terry is healthy, and up to date with vaccines, including Bordetella, microchipped, and on heartworm/flea/tick prevention. His neuter will be included in his adoption fee at the West Lorne Animal Hospital.
A fully fenced yard is mandatory to apply for Terry.
