Name: Mick
ID: 41439873
Breed: Retriever, Golden / Mix
Gender: Neutered Male
Age: 6 years 9 months
Size: Large
Location: Awaiting Foster
Foster Reason: I originally came to us through a cruelty case in 2014 and have been in and out of the shelter since then. I did very well in my previous adoptive home until the loss of my dad, so the SPCA staff are looking to get me back into a stable home environment.

Likes: Stuffed toys! I could play with them all day long. I also love being outside so going on walks or running around the yard makes me so happy. I'm also very treat motivated- I love my snacks!

Foster home requirements: I will need a calm, quiet household with adults only. This household will need to have an extremely low amount of visitors or deliveries, as I have an issue with doorbells. The staff have been working with me in the shelter on desensitization to these sounds and socialization with novel people. I will need a house with a securely fenced in yard and there should be no other pets in the home.

Foster Parent Requirements: Ideally my foster parents will be very experienced dog owners and familiar with dogs with behavior challenges. They'll need to communicate often with the foster and behavior team to provide feedback on how I'm doing in the home and how to course correct if there are issues.

Special Note: While I'm not ready for adoption, I am eligible for foster-to-adopt!
