He is a beautiful boy. But I would really suggest you take the initiative to find someone to evaluate him. Many people won't go past the initial post if the information isn't there and if there are any issues, often owners don't consider them issues so don't say anything about them...that's how I ended up with an anxiety ridden, cat killing, doberman for a foster for 9 months and I'm NOT saying Wiley is like that dog just using my example. So, if you know anyone in the Michigan area that can go take the dog out and evaluate him that would be ideal. The more information you can post first hand, the better chance he will have of finding a home. I'm just giving you my experience with posting a dog here or any other forum.

It's amazing to me that people will adopt a dog from a shelter halfway across the country based on a picture on the internet and a death sentence, but little to no info or only basic info as in "he sniffed a dog today and didn't growl so we'll label him dog friendly" (hey, I've done it too, I know they tug at your heartstrings), but a gorgeous decently bred beautiful young adult sable that is in good health and presumably has a decent temperament has trouble being placed.

OP has provided a nice picture, some basic info, and appears to be quick to give the phone number of the owner who can surely tell interested parties anything they'd like to know. IMHO if someone was serious about adopting him, they'd PM OP for contact info. People email with shelters back and forth all the time to try to find out if a dog is dog/cat/kid friendly, and talk to breeders. Why would they not just pick up the phone and call the owner as has been requested?

I actually just saw that the number was posted. Perhaps it was the last thread about this dog that you had to PM OP, but really, the number is right there. If anyone was seriously interested, they could give the owner a call and ask questions.

Exactly!!! He has been evaluated I'm thinking about 2 months ago when Fred's widow first decided to re-home him.

ADMIN NOTE: If anyone is interested, Please phone the contact number. That is the best bet to get the info a person wants.

Chuck has been clear that his knowledge of the dog is limited and inquiries need to go to the owner. Let's stop the harassment from people who feel that things should be done differently.

And if you wonder where you post went, it got deleted.

Oh, how I wish I could take him!

Probably a bad idea, with a 10-month-old, huh?

Thanks but I think this boy would do well soon as we are able to place him, we are working with a couple rescues which i hope will improve the chances of finding that precious home soon
