When you inquire about a dog, the following questions might be helpful:

1. Why are you giving up your dog?

2. Has the dog ever bitten, nipped or 'gone after' anyone?

3. Does it have any health problems? Who is your vet? May I contact him/her?

4. Where did you get the dog? Does it have papers?

5. Does your dog have any training? Is it housebroken? crate trained?

6. Is the dog left alone for long periods? What does it do? Bark? Dig? Chew? Is it an inside or outside dog? Where does it sleep?

7. How does the dog behave with adults, children? Other dogs? Cats?

8. Is your dog mellow? calm? energetic? protective? affectionate?


Obi is a special dog, like his trainer said, he is afraid of the world but getting better with time. At home he feels very comfortable, he gets along with our 10 year old dachshund mix. He loves to play with the Frisbee and fetch balls. He loves squeaky toys.
He is good with commands, he went to puppy class. He is crate trained. He loves to go for walks. He is o.k. out and about, he just can't get along with other dogs and won't let people come close. He sometimes barks but wags his tail at the same time. He is not sure what to do. I think if he gets the right person and training, he will be a confident dog.
He has a big heart and just wants to please you
and he is eager to learn. Best way to teach him is in a playful way. He is protective of his home. It is breaking my heart writing this. The reason why we have to give him up, is the house we were renting is being sold and no other rentals will take big dogs. Please help us find a good home for Obi, he will make someone very happy with the right training. Thank you


Important Note About Dog Descriptions

Please remember that the descriptions of dogs (of Dogs Available) have been written by GSRNC volunteers and are usually based only upon our observation of the dog since the time it was rescued. While we try to provide dog descriptions that are fair and accurate, the nature of our work involves contact with dogs whose background and history are unknown to us. GSRNC cannot warrant or guarantee any dog's future behavior. For example, if we say that a rescue dog gets along with children, cats, or other dogs, this statement is usually based upon the fact that one of our volunteers has observed the dog interacting with his or her own children or pets. While this information may be helpful, we cannot be certain of how a dog will do with the children or pets in your home. If you are considering adopting, we encourage you to come to one of our Adoption Days and meet our rescue dogs. Ultimately, only you can decide whether one of our dogs is right for you.
