Favorite Animals and Breeds!
Name - Beefcake
Nicknames - Beefy
Age - adult
Weight - 50-ish
Other dogs – would do best as an only dog. Could potentially match with a veru balanced, co-existing dog and a family that knows how to set boundaries right away.
Cats - He is OK with cats but would need to monitored and introduced with slow introductions. No aggression, just interested.
Kids - OK out & about but needs to child-free home.
Background - Stray from Compton. Picked up by the police and brought to the shelter.
Crate trained – Hates the crate. Would do best in a home with someone who works from home and a room where he can be left in a smaller area when you are away (only a couple hours a day).
Leash trained - Does fine on leash
Housebroken - Uses the doggy door, will also go to the back door and wait.
Eating Habits - Great eater, uses a slow feeder
Commands known - Sit
Car rides - Fine in the car. Doesn't like to get in and out but when in no issues.
Bath time - Does fine.
Affectionate - Affectionate and likes to be around his people.
Activity level - Low, couch potatoes. Loves to go on walks but can't go far. Must be in a home without stairs as he does have medium hip dysplasia and 2 bad knees. Does great on Carprofen and he does run around the yard and seems to be pain free.
Play style - No real play style, more of a lounger.
Medical – He has mild hip dysplasia and 2 bad knees. He does not use a brace currently but it has been suggested that it could help him. These issues don't stop him from doing everything he wants to do though, but do limit his ability to be too active out & about.
Bad habits - Snoring definitely! He CANNOT HAVE squeaky toys or squeaky balls as he will guard them.
Redeeming qualities - Happy to see you always, gives you a happy dance when it’s time to eat. He uses a slow feeder bowl. Doesn't let his knee and hip problems bring him down. Still trys to be the best dog he can.
Best feature - His calm loving demeanor. You can just see it in his eyes how much he loves you and how he wants to be the bestest boy!
What Foster Mom/Dad wants you to know -
He definitely needs someone that will be strict with him and lets him know he doesn't need to keep them safe but you will keep him safe. He doesn't let his hips and knees keep him from doing dog stuff but low activity is a must. He is a very smart boy and just wants to be with his family. Will be right there with you for any sun tanning sessions. Enjoys getting in a kiddy pool and cooling down with you. Is fantastic with every person he meets. He enjoys just spending time around people.
