What he lacks in understanding of personal space, he makes up for in 110lbs of drool and slobber!
This guy is awesome, hilarious, super cuddly, and major loving. He will be a great dog for a patient owner. When he arrived at the Kingston Humane Society, he was absolutely petrified in the shelter. Strangers = danger for him. He was afraid of the workers, other dogs, sounds, smells, you name it! It took weeks of slow socialization to get him this far. Farva’s previous owners surrendered him only because they had an altercation with their other dog in the home.
Farva is a big boy, so his future people will need to understand that he cannot be around other pets in order to keep all four-legged parties safe. No doggy visitors, no dog-parks. He actually walks well on leash. Unfortunately, though, when he gets spooked, he pulls A LOT, so a rural environment would be best. Because he is so strong, he’s not the kind of guy that can be walked in a busy area. He will need a securely fenced yard and a home with all humans over age 14. Large-breed dog experience is a must! This guy is on the road to recovery, but it’s slow, and it’s long. We know it’s a tall order, but if you want to truly rescue a dog, Farva might be for you.
