Meet Radar!
Adoption Pending

Radar came from a shelter where he was taken as a stray.

Radar is a super sweet lovable 8 month old guy that wants nothing more than a lap to curl up in. Radar weighs about 7 lbs. He has cropped ears that were done what we would assume was too early because they are not quite even. Radar is up to date on shots, neutered, micro chipped, and heart worm negative and on prevention for it as well as those nasty fleas and ticks! Radar is currently being fostered with another griff, 2 big springer spaniels, and 4 cats. Radar looooves to play with the other griff and tries to chase the big dogs in the yard but his little legs donít carry him quite as fast as he would like but he sure does try. Radar is also being fostered with 2 human children, one is only 20 months and the other is almost 7 years and he gets along with both of them. He loves to chase the older one around the yard and catch the balls she throws.

Radar was not house broken when we first got him but now he can hold it longer, he has been tested thus far for 6 hours. Right now Radar sleeps in a big crate in the bedroom with his foster brother and does quite well. When crated during the day he does whine when first put in there but does settle down after he knows he is there to stay for a while. Radar loves stuffed squeaky toys and will wrestle the other dogs using them, Radar usually looses, poor Radar. Radar is not a digger, not a big barker in the yard, and has never tried to escape, we can not for the life of us figure out how he was let go by his previous owners.

Radar is in the process of learning basic commands at a very slow pace, he gets so excited to be near people he forgets the task at hand such as sit and down. Stay is impossible, he is just way too busy and canít help but lick you when you give him the command. We will continue to work on him with these commands while he is in foster care as well as work on his leash skills. All in all Radar is a fantastic puppy that would make a wonderful addition to any home!

Radar is being fostered in the Columbus, OH area.

If you would like more information, contact Vicki. If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.

Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.
