    Aslan

    Male 2.2 years

    Aslan is a sweet and handsome, two year old male who was found as a stray wandering the streets of Stockton.  Based on our initial observation, he probably has had minimal exposure to the outside world during his two years.  Everything seemed new to him, including playing with other dogs.  Several of his rescue siblings tried to initiate play and at first Aslan didn’t really understand what they wanted or the “play bow”.  But that didn’t last long.  Rescue's self appointed mascot, Bucky, and his pesky puppy persistence paid off and he finally got Aslan to start playing and got him to chase him around his new playyard!    Aslan appears to have not had a lot of training so we (and he) are starting from square one but he has shown an eagerness to learn and especially an eagerness to please.    Aslan will require a patient, dedicated, decisive, and committed owner who is willing to set boundaries and enforce them and who is willing to be fully committed to him and his on-going training and learning.      More

    Bucky

    Male 7.2 months Level 4.0

    Meet Rescue's self appointed Mascot, the pesky puppy Greeter, and Initiator of Play, Bucky.    Bucky is an extremely outgoing, independent pup who is not afraid of anything.  And although these are his best qualities, these are also qualities that his new owner will need to channel and manage.  His eagerness to meet and greet new dogs and his ever-persistent personality could easy become a nuisance to some dogs.   Bucky has great eye focus, is a fast learner, and is learning basic obedience and house manners.  He is crate trained, is a great traveler, has a great bark (for his size) and gets along with all dogs he meets.  He hasn’t mastered being housebroken yet but his foster mom is diligently working on that.   We believe Bucky is mostly Belgian Malinois with a sprinkle of German shepherd which will require an adopter with knowledge and experience handling and training these two Breeds.  We carefully choose homes for our puppies as they require owners who are home enough, and have the time, energy and patience to guide the puppy through their chewing, digging, and mouthing stages (which can last through adolescence), and who will provide regular exercise, socialization and training so the puppy will grow up to be a mannerly adult dog. All puppies bark incessantly, dig, and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time, and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours. More
