Sulley

ADOPTED December 28, 2016

Quick Adoption Overview
3.5 yrs old - DOB March 27, 2013
Neutered, UTD on vaccines
Suited to an adult only home
Could join a home with a well mannered canine pal
Will chase cats
Located in Toronto




Handsome boy Sulley is a friendly, people focused boy who has lots of love to give. 

Sulley is sharing his foster home with several other dogs and seems happy to be with a group of well mannered canine pals.  He could join a family with another well socialized dog.

Having lived in a rural area as an outdoor dog, Sulley is in need of some training and socialization.  He is very motivated to be with people and is happy to now be living indoors as part of a family.  This sweet boy will benefit greatly from joining an adoptive family where his owners have the time to work on obedience, give him structure and direction to help him blossom into a well mannered boy.  He is responsive and wants to please, has loads of potential, he just needs some direction and a kind hand to guide him.

He's a goofy, playful boy who is fun loving and loves to romp around and play.  So cute!



Sulley is very fortunate to be in a wonderful foster home where he is able to benefit from the support of an experienced handler to help build his confidence, expose him to new things, and work to resolve some of the habits he has picked up.  A combination of obedience classes, a structured home environment emphasizing the Nothing in Life is Free training approach, and lots of opportunities to be set up for success will go a long way towards helping Sulley thrive.  



His ideal adopters will be a family that continues on with the work that has been started with him.  Given his training needs he is best suited to an adult only home.

He is 3.5 years old, neutered and current on vaccines.  We are treating him for an ear infection. Sulley has a weak back end and is in need of putting on muscle.  We have done xrays and had him assessed by an ortho vet and he appears to perhaps have an old injury to his knee, but is not in need of surgery.  He has some arthritis in his knees, his hips look pretty good.  Moving forward, Sulley will be taking pain medication short term while we work on building up his back end.  It is expected that the pain meds will be discontinued once he is a bit stronger.  Sulley will benefit from being on joint supplements for the rest of his life.
