The Stray GSD Mix
Firstly, as many of you know, my wife Tracy corralled a stray dog about two weeks ago, and since then he has been living with us, assimilating with the pack and looking for someone to take him in.
We are proud to report that this old guy has found a home with the coolest family on earth. He is now relaxing in Columbus, Ohio with Andrew's parents. We named him Benjamin while he was here and since we learned he mostly likes to sit around and watch TV, we figured he'd be a perfect match for our parents in Ohio.
After his first weekend there, we're happy to hear that he is making new friends everyday and that he is already having a great time off-leash at the dog park. I'm sad to report that he loves the Ohio State Buckeyes and Buckeye football parties, but we can't all be perfect.
This weekend I got the pleasure of meeting Christina who runs the Luv A Dog Rescue here in Indianapolis. She has recently taken in a 6 year old Rottweiler who has been hard to place. Every time someone puts a leash on him, all he can think to do is turn it into an intense game of tug that could easily take a person off their feet. Tug is no fun when there is no respect or control.
I was happy to help when Christina called me in and within a few minutes we were able to give Christina hope again by getting him to walk on leash like a perfect gentleman.
The Rottweiler's name is Moose, and he has been missing out on all the perks of being a dog (adoption events, foster homes, pack walks) because he just couldn't control himself when it came to wearing a leash.
While I was there, we also had Moose meet his first dog friend off-leash and they both did great. Hopefully this is a new chapter in Moose's life and I was happy to be a part of it.
If you're interested in a fun-loving Rottweiler who learns fast, check out the Luv a Dog rescue on Petfinder here in Indianapolis - they have lots of other awesome dogs trying to find homes if you're looking for a new pack member as well!
