We work in eastern PA, southern NJ, and parts of MD and DE depending on distance.
Bandit is a big boy. He weighed in at 58 pounds at the kennel. They are going to monitor his weight and make sure that he doesn't lose more, as he has apparently lost weight since he came into the shelter. When I went to pick him up, they brought him into one of the meet and greet rooms and left him with me while they went to get the paperwork in order. He was agitated and pacing around, but whenever he came near me, as he passed me, I would reach out and give him one stroke. Pretty soon he started paying a little attention to me and then came and stood right in front of me and stared at me. (You all know that appraising Siberian Stare.) I reached out and started scratching the side of his neck and he dove between my knees and let me scratch his rump. Then he pulled his head out and sat down infront of me and let me give him a really good deep scratching on his neck and back. Then he got bored and went back to looking around and out the window to the lobby. I really like this dog. He is a sweetie. He was no trouble to get into the car and he rode pretty darned well, although the crate was a little cramped for him. (I said he is a big boy.) He started getting pretty agitated as we crossed the river.Bandit was originally an owner surrender on the excuse that they had no room for him. He was purchased from a breeder, but I gather the 'breeder' either was not contacted or refused to take him back. He is reportedly housebroken, used to being left alone 4-6 hrs/day, had free run of the house when left alone and was ok with it. He has lived with children and was reportedly playful with them. He is reputed to get along with other dogs and plays with them. He also supposedly gets long with cats. He is reputed to know 'sit', 'down', 'stay' and 'come'. Couldn't have proved it by me or my friend that rode along with me.
Our foster dogs live in the private homes of our volunteers. We do not have a kennel facility where the public can visit our foster dogs. Our foster dogs are up to date on vaccines, spayed or neutered, and house trained (or working on it) at the time of adoption.
