ADOPTED ON 01-02-15 – Claw is a male German Shepard mix, who weighs approximately 45lbs and is 1.5 years old.  He is neutered and up to date on vaccinations.  Claw previously lived his life tied outside in the hot Louisiana sun, along with 3 or 4 other dogs. After 9 months of a volunteer from Patrick’s Pals stopping by with food and vaccinations and speaking with the family and educating them about the  proper environment a dog should live in,  they agreed to surrender Claw and his sister, so they could be part of our program.

Claw is friendly, affectionate and listens very well. He tends to be a little cautious children, because they are closer to his level and he just wants to say hello! He does well with other dogs. His foster mother says when a new dog enters her pack he likes to be the one in charge, but after a brief warm up period he is more interested in playing. He does excellent in a crate and is house trained. His behavior with cats is unknown and he still needs a little work with his leash skills, as he tends to pull. Claw enjoys going for rides in the car and loves to be outside. He is scared of loud noises.

The ideal home for Claw would be one where he gets lots of exercise.  His new family may include children, as long as the parents would work with him on keeping “four on the floor” as he tends to be a bit exuberant when greeting children. He is just so excited to meet these new friends he just needs a little help containing himself! Claw’s new home may include other dogs, but he would do fine as an only dog as well. If his new home were to include another dog, he may do better with a submissive dog as he often likes to be the one in charge.  After being subjected to the hot Louisiana sun and the changing conditions during the storms in the south, Claw deserves a home where he can go inside anytime he wants. Claw would love to be the one that lies next to you on the couch or curls up in his bed while you watch the evening news. All he asks for in return is a scratch behind the ears,  a ” good boy” , and your unconditional love.

  • Children need to be taught how to how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children.
  • No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child because often-young children don’t understand that a cute little dog, or any dog, might not want “love and kisses.”
  • Never let young children pick up a puppy or small dog. Instead, make them sit on the floor with the dog in their lap. Pay attention to the dog’s body language, and put him safely in his crate if he appears to be unhappy or uncomfortable with the child’s attention.
  • Always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs.
  • Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
  • Be prepared dogs will protect themselves
  • Most important, it is your responsibility to make sure that your children and the dog are supervised at all times and safe. You cannot leave it up to the dog, the dog is an animal and will behave like an animal. They rely on us to guide and protect them, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
