About Drake

Drake A229923 Drake is a 1 year old male who came into the shelter on July 13 as an owner surrender. Handling video: https://youtu.be/oBE-jg64f90 Leash Test: https://youtu.be/Y-o0zLdVfxk Drake is one sad boy. He was sitting in his kennel shaking with the slip lead loose around his body. We aren’t sure how long he had been frozen like this but one more minute was too long. We went slow with our approach and gave Drake time to feel comfortable leashing. It wasn’t instant but he was nervous. Once the leash was on he pancaked a few times on the way outside. He definitely didn’t know which way was up and his confusion showed all over his face. Drake tried to jump his way to freedom but didn’t quite have the strength to clear the very tall fence so he stood holding on to it and looking for his people. We gave him space and tried distract him with treats that he wasn’t interested in. It wasn’t till we got to the tennis balls that we saw a spark of youngster in him. It took a few tosses to convince him it was ok to have fun but we got there. Drake will need some time to adjust to shelter life before we see all of his personality. Hopefully his stay will be short and a new home comes his way.

Leonardo A228303 Leonardo is a 3 year old male who came into the shelter on 6/3 as a stray. Handling 6/8: https://youtu.be/PPC3lEGQwEk Handling: https://youtu.be/_rZG2eFaSbE Leash Test: https://youtu.be/Vcc52ZHmVWY Some dogs come into the shelter and just trust you immediately. This is the case with Leonardo. When we approached his kennel, he immediately stood up and offered his head to be leashed. Leonardo followed us outside without hesitation. He just seems to have a happy joyful disposition and has those eyes, those eyes make a girl’s heart skip a beat! He seems quite young and already such a big boy, but very easy to handle. Leonardo takes treats like a gentleman! He seems to want to be right by our side the whole time that we were outdoors. When we would stop rubbing his sweet head, he would nudge us to restart again. Leonardo did a little exploring around the play yard but he certainly likes to be near humans. Leonardo can be bouncy, especially likes to jump behind his handler as we walk. He seems starved for attention. We can’t imagine someone isn’t looking for this boy, but are continued to be dumbfounded time and time again at the shelter with all amazing dogs come in as “strays“ and nobody, nobody comes for them. Leonardo is looking for a family that will help him grown with continued training and lots of love. show less
