Luckily, someone connected to GRR discovered this handsome blonde guy being sold on Craig’s list. He was brought into our welcoming arms as a shy boy, but he quickly started warming up. Mick is being treated for hookworms and itching, but other that that he is a healthy boy.

Personality: Mick is completely housebroken. He seems to be a bit scared of the crate (maybe something from his past life?), so he is left baby gated when he is left alone with his two foster sisters.

Mick gets excited when his foster family comes home, so he jumps up a little. The poor little guy doesn’t seem to know how to play. He just sits and watches as his two sisters play together. He ignores the household cat.

It seems like he didn’t have much of a life before coming to GRR, because besides not playing with other dogs he doesn’t seem to understand walking on a leash, although he does not pull. Toys are of no interest to him, either. He hasn’t been around water, so we don’t know if he is a swimmer.

Mick’s behavior indoors is very good and he is calm during thunderstorms. He also seems to be just fine with grooming.

Mick came into his foster home with some serious trust issues (what did his past owners do to him?). The vet that initially saw Mick said he was completely shut down. But he has learned to trust his foster family and comes up to them to initiate pets, which he thoroughly loves. He follows his foster mom around the house as she does her chores.

Despite it all, Mick is a very sweet dog and learning to feel safe. He has also learned the value of treats! When he came in, he had no interest.

He does react to loud noises, though not thunder. It’s possible he’s a run risk so foster mom walks him around the backyard on a leash.

Ideal Home: Mick would do well in a home with other dogs and with a family willing to give him lots of attention and kindness.
