Training Needs: some leash training
Health issues: Allergies that have been controlled with the right food, frequent tub time (which he loves), Benadryl, and a monthly cytopoint injection.

Not a health issue but, along with working with a trainer/behaviorist, we decided to help Shrek with what seems like a little anxiety and start him on prozac. He may need to stay on it, he may be able to be weaned off of it once he’s completely settled into this new home. These tools have been so beneficial with Shrek. Not an expensive med and not a big deal. He will remain on it while in foster care and could probably be weaned off once completely settled into his new FOREVER home.

Meet Shrek

Shrek a big uncoordinated, lovable goof! His noises are just hysterical! He grumbles almost all the times! When he gets really excited he thumps his back leg!  He is so ticklish! Pretty much any spot on his body will cause him to thump his leg and fall to the ground! The rolls and squish on this meaty meatball are irresistible! How could you not fall in love with this boy! He’s been so friendly to everyone he’s met. So trusting.  He’s just precious when he sucks on his blankie and favorite toy, baby platypus! Shrek loves working on training commands. Just a few minutes a day and he’s learning so much! Waits so patiently for his food, or a toy at playtime. Shrek’s a very good boy who wants to be part of the family and please his humans.

Shrek is a great dog! He’s really great with his foster dog friends, he’s so friendly and loving to all humans he’s met! He’s a heartbreaker with his endearing ways!
