Waylon was rescued & adopted by a woman who sadly passed away soon after. He was surrendered to CARE by her family. He does well in a crate, walks well on leash, and is house trained.
Waylon would do best as the only pet & no small kids. He's sweet & playful, but does resource guard toys. We do not give him toys for this reason and are working on the behavior. He likely never had toys before, or not in a long time, and puts a very high value on them. Waylon is food motivated, is learning to take treats gently and does well with training.
Waylon loves an adventure, loves to be loved on, keeps his nose to the ground often (would excel at nose work!). This sweet pea is also quite happy relaxing by himself or snuggling on the couch with people too.
Waylon is currently living in a boarding facility. The staff love him dearly and try to spend extra time with him where they can. He deserves a forever family. He is heartworm NEGATIVE.
A completed adoption application and home visit are required for approval to adopt a CARE dog. Out of state adoptions okay. All dogs receive a distemper/parvovirus vaccine(s), kennel cough vaccine, rabies vaccine, dewormer, monthly heartworm prevention, flea & tick prevention and treatment if needed, microchip, and are spayed/neutered through CARE.
The most accurate and complete information about available dogs can be found on our official website at www.caretoadopt.org. Breeds are sometimes known, but sometimes our best educated guess.
