Raylan is making progress in his foster home, but he is looking for an experienced adopter. He has displayed guarding issues with his food and things that he perceives as his food. For this reason, Raylan will not be placed in a home with children. His foster family is working with him and the management of these behaviors. Raylan has no difficulties with toys and he loves squeaky tennis balls. His other favorite thing to do is playing tug with his fur foster sister. With an established routine, Raylan does well with housetraining. His foster family is still working with him on crate training.  They have found that Raylan does best in a vari-kennel. He goes in easily with a Kong and settles once you leave the house. Last month, Raylan had a polyp removed that was benign. He recovered quickly and was soon back to his playful self. Overall, Raylan is a very sweet, loving dog.  When he wakes up in the morning, he rolls over willingly for belly rubs.  Raylan needs a home that will commit to strict management around food.  He would also do best with a fenced yard as he loves doing zoomies and running laps several times a day. If you feel your home is a good match for Raylan, apply today!

Raylan is a sweet, loving, and high energy boy. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard where he can run and play. Raylan would also love to be placed with another dog that will tolerate his energy level. He is now fully integrated with the four other dogs in his foster home and gets along well with everyone. His favorite toys are anything that moves! Raylan also enjoys snuggling and belly rubs. He is very food motivated and eats in his crate. Raylan is gaining more privileges in the home and is now completely housebroken. He is quiet in the home, even when the other dogs are barking. Raylan is much more vocal when he is playing with another dog outside. He has spent some time with the foster home’s nieces and nephews, and he did well with them. Raylan is now ready to find a forever home. Apply today if you can provide a great match for this wonderful boy.

Raylan is a 5 yr old male boxer who was surrendered to the shelter by a puppy mill because he could not be used for breeding anymore. He did great with the other dogs at the shelter. Raylan does not have a history around children. He needs a patient home that will give him time to adjust to living in a home environment. Raylan would do best with another dog and a securely fenced yard.

Raylan has been in his new foster home for two weeks now. He is neutered and has been brought up to date on all vet care. Raylan’s foster home indicates that he is a very sweet boy with a lot of energy. He loves his crate and is very quiet in it. Raylan knows how to sit and will give his paw. He is still getting used to handling and seems to enjoy meeting new people. Raylan has recently discovered toys. He acts like a puppy and is learning how good life can be!
