Holmes Needs A Place To Call Home
Tuesdays are always one of my favorite days at work because we get to talk to Kate from Tri County Humane Society and find a home for some lucky pet. This week it's Holmes, a very smart dog that just needs a loving home an master. Could it be you? How can you resist those big brown eyes?
Here's some info on Holmes;
Say hello to Holmes! Holmes was brought to TCHS due to not getting along with the other resident dog. Because of this Holmes should be an only dog. This sweet boy has been described as anxious, and has been very fearful in the shelter setting. Will need a family who understands fearful body language and can given him plenty of space and time to adjust to a new environment and new people.
The use of Adaptil is recommended in his new home to help with stress reductions; ask a staff member about this product available in the TCHS Re-Tail Shoppe. Peanut butter was the first treat that got him to start warming up to shelter staff. Intelligent and treat-motivated. Knows "sit" and "down". Positive interactions that encourage learning with the use of treats is a great way for his new family to start bonding with Holmes.
Additional training and tricks may help build his confidence and help with some of his anxiety behaviors. Has been given anxiety meds by his former veterinarian and while he has been staying at TCHS Discuss anxiety management and stress with your veterinarian. It is unknown how Holmes would do with cats or kids. All introductions should be slow and proper
Please ask staff for more info on slow introductions. Pulls hard on leash and when he is fearful, he tries to run away. An Emily Weiss leash is recommended to help with safer leash walking. Holmes is house trained and kennel trained. His favorite spot to sleep is on the couch if allowed. Once Holmes warms up to you he loves to give kisses and cuddle up! Will likely do best in a quiet home where he can expect routine and consistency.
This pretty boy can't wait to meet his new family! Donations and adoption fees help cover the cost of spay/neuter surgeries, micro-chipping, vaccinating, de-worming, any medical procedures and general care. DEPOSITS MAY BE PLACED ON ADOPTABLE ANIMALS by calling 320-252-0896
