Foster insights/story: was driving home from out of town and something caught the corner of my eye. I pulled over and turned around to find Red. I fed him some chicken trying to win him over to get a better look. My kids rolled down window and he jumped in my front seat I just couldn’t put him back onto street in his condition.
Foster update: Red thrives on boundaries and structure and needs an experienced handler. Obedience training would be a must for him to continue the progress that his foster is making with him. He needs lots of exercise and toys but ultimately he just wants to be with his people all of the time. For this reason, someone who is home most of the time or who can bring him with them during the day would be best for him. He settles down well and will just sit by your side calmly for hours.
