MEERKAT was adopted on 18 April 2020, however is family is having problems with him being reactive on the leash. I will update information and pictures in the near future, when I get chance to go through their emails and update the bio - he is a great dog other than being on a leash, so a family who will work with either a professional trainer on reactive dogs on leash, or lives in an area where walks can be done avoiding other people and dogs. There are a lot of resources for reactive dogs, and groups on Facebook and other social media, it is very workable and trainable with the family that has the time and personality to deal with this.When at the rescue I took him to the vets and he rode in the car and came across other dogs in the vets office and had no problems, so he most likely has a "trigger". If interested in this handsome boy - please email "firstname.lastname@example.org" so I can provide the full information from the family - I will update this bio when I have time.
MEERKAT was saved from a high kill shelter in Texas where dogs have just 3 dogs to be saved and transported to the rescue in Sebec, Maine MEERKAT is neutered, core vaccines, rabies, heart-worm & tick disease tested negative, de-wormed, monthly preventatives and micro-chipped. He has an estimated date of birth of 4 February 2014 and at the time of rescue in February 2020 weighed around 40 pounds. We have no way of knowing the exact breed, it is up to individuals to decide what breed they think is most likely.
MEERKAT arrived at the rescue on Tuesday, 25th February and has settled in well. He can be a little shy at first and although he enjoys running and playing with the other dogs, he does prefer smaller groups and he will run, chase and play quite happily. On a vet visit Meerkat became a different dog, he was so social, there was an elderly lady who he went and sat down right in front of just looking up at her, he was so happy and so well behaved. It is clear that he has had a family and possibly an elder lady with the way he acted, he loves going on walks, is great riding in the car, was great with the vet and his staff. He is an all round great boy a nice medium sized middle aged dog - perfect for a relativly active fun family.
All dogs use dog doors to go out and do their business or to enjoy the cool, fresh weather in their dog runs or communal areas. We cannot say if a dog is house-trained, however, we expect families to understand that all dogs need a transition period and accidents could happen and training is most definitely needed.
