If I would have known this would have been the last time I would see Chevy, I would have kissed him on his little wet nose for luck.
Our foster's time has come and gone so quickly. We cared for him for just two weeks before he had gained enough weight to be placed onto the adoption floor at the Greater Birmingham Humane Society.
With each foster I've been blessed to come across, I like to take a little bit of time and ponder on how their life has impacted my own.. knowing that they are out there somewhere.. hoping that someone can see the good that they can bring into their life and give them a chance at life with a successful adoption.
One thing that I would like to add to Chevy's future and potential adopter is to be patient.. He is willing to please and listen to you.. you just need to know how to listen to him and his needs. He needs an owner that understands that he isn't going to be perfect the first night, week or maybe even the first month.. ( Millie, my rescue is still growing and learning and it's been a whole year!!) With time, I assure you he can learn to be pretty close to perfect if you ask me.
Chevy is highly trainable and confident. He will walk wherever you walk and loves all people big and small, male or female, young or old. He never meets a stranger!
He learned to sit within his first couple days at my home before I would feed him and his quick temper towards my own dogs subsided after a stern correction. If you are looking to add a second dog into your pack, I believe Chevy could work well with a submissive dog because he loves being the alpha but like any relationships.. It will take time.
He needs a calm yet assertive owner that can teach him right from wrong. I'd like to also brag on how it just took one time for me to tell him NO and he didn't use the bathroom in my home again during his two weeks with us.
To whoever gives Chevy a chance. you will not only save his life but you will also be rewarded with a dog that will live for your approval.. That's a pretty good pal if you ask me!
