Simon is a designer puppy bought at a pet store. He was born 11/16/16, so he is almost 6 months old. He was so young his new owners fed him with a bottle! Then as he got older he had some social issues that any puppy taken away from momma too soon. So he was ignored and left in a crate. He has a lot of socializing and learning to do. He could use a happy sibling dog to show him the ropes, but also someone who is willing to socialize and work with him. He needs walks and some obedience training/trick training, and attention to build his confidence. Since he is so young he still needs help with his house training. With a young puppy it's more the owner's consistency than the puppy having problems. So you have to be ready to work on that too. Simon's adoption fee is $300.
*It has taken over a week and Simon is out of his shell and amazing. He still will need someone dedicated to keeping him social as he still doesn't like strangers. He will need someone to take him to obedience class. He loves other dogs and our cats that play with him. He loves to play with toys and run around the house then he conks out. He cries if he doesn't get to sleep by someone. He loves to sit on your lap. His potty training has been tough with all the rain but he is 99% paper trained and when it's nice out there is no problem. He sleeps with us at night and goes to his crate when we are gone during the day. He is a prefect little puppy.
He is neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats. He is working on his housetraining and he still needs obedience training.
