Alan came to CCRT in early January 2017 with little known about him. He was transferred to CCRT via a shelter.Since his arrival, his foster family has learned a lot about this funny little man in only a short period.

Alan was nervous when he first arrived at his foster home, which isn’t unusual with all the new surroundings, smells and new humans but he quickly warmed up to everyone within the first hour. His foster family has three small dogs as well as three cats and Alan fit right in without an issue. He wasn’t sure what the cats were at first but realized they weren’t a threat unless you sniff too closely in places they don’t appreciate.

Personality: A funny little character is how best to describe his personality. He loves to cuddle, get belly rubs and give kisses to his humans once he gets familiar with you. He is very curious and will follow you around to see what you are up to around the house. He is a happy little guy for sure who is food motivated and loves meal time. He grunts and makes cute noises when getting comfortable for a nap and so far doesn’t seem to be much of a barker. 

Training: Alan is a very smart young boy who is eager to learn. He picked up very quickly on the dog household routine of going outside to the washroom. He did mark the first day in the house but with a few gentle corrections we haven’t had any more issues. He is crate trained and enjoys sleeping in there at night and there are no accidents to clean up in the morning. His foster family is working on basic commands with him as he doesn’t seem to have had any direction given in that area. He is working on sit and stay currently and so far, he is picking that up well.

Socialization: Alan is nervous of meeting new people. He wants to hide away when new people are around and will growl and air snap if forced or cornered. A very typical flight response for a dog. His foster family is focusing on helping Alan with this issue by slowly introducing him to visitors in the home as well as on walks and trips to pet friendly stores. Socializing will take some time but his foster family is confident that Alan will be meeting people without issue with consistency and positive reinforcement.
