Hi Everyone, my name is Ram and I am a shy boy looking for that special family and couch.
|Sex: Male||Color: Red|
|Date of Birth: 7/20/2015||Weight: 74 lbs|
|Sire: Djays Octane||Dam: Gable Redneck|
|Right Ear: 75D||Left Ear: 67012|
|Initial Evaluation: No Cats Please||Foster Parent(s:) Gene & Rosanne P|
|Ram is a special needs boy. He struggles with anxiety which makes him leery of unknown people and places. But once he accepts you, he is a very loving boy. He is currently on an herbal formulation that has taken the edge off his anxiety making him much more comfortable with his surroundings and unknown people and places.
He is up for adoption again because he was defending his person too forcefully from his male partner and cats. He might need to be an only pet or be with a female close to his own size. Small dogs are questionable. Cats are definitely not an option. He has no experience at being an only, so would have to adjust to that as well as a new home. In his foster home, he has used the pack to determine if situations are “safe”. He will require much patience and understanding but the effort will be well worth it.
He does tend towards women more than men and is most comfortable with children. He hurries up to children with his tail wagging asking for attention. Unknown adults need to ignore him, leaving the initiation of contact up to Ram. Being on his herbal supplement, he will approach strangers on his own time. The trick is, don’t look at him.
Ram kisses are the best and are given out when he is feeling safe and comfortable. Ram is fine on all types of floors and does stairs with ease. He will crate when needed. He sleeps the night thru but does know when breakfast is to be served and will remind you if you happen to be a little late getting up. He also knows when dinnertime is. He has good house manners only barking when needing to go outside or when he is uncomfortable with an unknown person who is looking at him.
Ram is not a counter surfer. He can be a picky eater, sometimes leaving some breakfast, most often finishing dinner. Plain yogurt helps a lot; it’s yummy. Treats must be what he considers the good ones for him to take them from your hand. He occasionally plays with his single toy of choice. He very much enjoys running in the yard with the other hounds. He stands well for grooming as that feels real good.
Ram is very much a homebody. He does walk on leash but care must be taken as there are things out there with which he isn’t familiar. He does have a no-escape harness for when he does leave the house. He is anxious in the car unless he has canine company.
