Arrival Story: What's in a name? Really? I mean, when the laboratory told me that they would be releasing a dog to us named "TrainWreck" I thought "Well, we definitely will need to change that...
.... in the first 5 minutes of meeting "T" you understand how appropriate the name is, so we're keeping it! "T" was voluntarily released to us from a research facility. The veins in his neck are difficult to draw blood from, so he did not make a good candidate for studies. SO, "T" was released to CBR to find him a great home! In the short time T has been here, it is clear that he is not a typical shy, cautious, or even fearful retiree. Um, no. T decided to jump onto my file cabinet the first night home, decided to slide down a flight of steps since he was too interested in what was down there, and likes to put his head right in the refrigerator to check out what is in there. I don't know if I have ever had a dog make me laugh more!
Bio: T will need a patient adopter to work with him on his housetraining and cratetraining, and at this point, T seems to love everyone (other dogs, kids) and everything he meets. He would greatly benefit from an obedience class. He is taking in the "real world" with an amazing zest for life! We will post more about him as we learn about him, but we just can't say enough about him. He's a riot and needs to go to a family with a good sense of humor.
Update: T is such a great dog that any family would be lucky to have! He is a bit anxious in new environments, and just tends to be very active, but he does settle down once he gets comfortable. When you pick him up, he snuggles into you like a little stuffed animal and will stay there as long as you let him. :) T will need a patient adopter to continue to work on his housetraining and cratetraining.

He is so much fun and needs to go to a family with a good sense of humor!
