Sherman had a rough start in life but he is climbing the ladder of success thanks to some helping hands. He started life with a back yard breeder that kept him in the garage and feed his dogs less than nourishing food. When it became clear he could no longer care for Sherman, good Samaritans offered to take him in and find him a good home. Sherman had been eating corn flakes for the last few days with the so called breeder. That was chapter one. Now Sherman is in chapter two with his foster home where he has been learning a lot. He lives with another Boxer is housebroken and good on a leash.
Sherman does have some learning to do and is getting the help he needs. Even with all the love in foster, he is a insecure and can be wary of strangers to the point of a bratty nip. He is the same way outside with dogs he does not know. Both these behaviors are totally fixable and BRLA is on it. Sherman would benefit from a controlled atmosphere in his new home without a lot of coming and going at first.
Sherman needs an experienced owner in a home without small children (he gets too excited). The positive training methods being used to help Sherman need to be continued to make sure he keeps going the right way in life. Sherman started his life without any real commitment beyond monetary gain for the breeder. Now that is fosters have invested in his training and are committed to help find the right home, Sherman is ready for the next chapter in life; the happy ending.
His fosters know the stress of a kennel would be too much for Sherman and will keep him in a home environment until placed. Sherman is not at BRLA. If you would like to meet him please ask for him on your adoption application.
