Meet Captain, we know his story sadly. Captain was a police dog, he had many years of active duty and he was probably a very faithful dog, who was good at his job. Then he got older and slower and was no longer fit for purpose so he was taken and left at the Public Shelter. He would never have been saved because of his age. But then he met our angel Florentina.
Captain lives his life for an ear scratch, a comfy bed and his favourite thing of all is his food. Captain is an amazingly gentle dog but don't forget your fingers if you're giving him a tasty treat or two.
Because of his past, Captain is a fairly laid back gentle dog, he is fine around all the dogs he has met in our care, he hasn't met cats with us so we are uncertain how he would be.
Captain would love it if we could find him a home where he can be totally spoilt. He said he doesn't mind sharing his home with another doggy as long as they don't steal his bed or treats or boss him about too much. Because Captain is a little older we would prefer a home without children so he doesn't have to have too much noise, he would be fine with visiting kids as long as they follow the feed me treats rule (Captain's special request).
Captain is a lovely dog who will do just about anything for food, we think you'll get the picture of his motivations, so his training shouldn't be any issues - it will mean he brushes up on the basics again but this time in English not Romanian. He should also walk reasonably okay on a harness and lead but we have not been able to test this.
It's unlikely Captain has lived in a home before, so it should be expected he will need a little toilet training and there could potentially be a few accidents. He's a smart cookie and will be like most of our dogs, who will do their best to keep clean in their new homes and slowly and quietly start their sofa takeovers.
If you can offer this wonderful lad his forever home, a nice relaxed place he can call his own and finally be loved and totally happy then please do complete the adoption application and someone will contact you
Captain is looking for a guardian angel in the meantime, who might consider a few treats for him from the Amazon wishlist, or maybe monthly sponsorship to help with things like his daily food. If that is you please get in touch
