My Story

Date into Rescue: 11/25/2020

Reason for being in rescue: Stray Pittsboro

Special Needs: Tony is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Tony oes not like women. He can warm up to them, but is a stretch. He is looking for a home with only men.

What kind of home would be best for me: Tony is a cute, young dog looking for a very specific home. First and foremost, Tony will only be adopted to a home with men. He absolutely does not like women and cannot live with them. For men he is fabulous. Second, Tony needs boundaries and consistency. He has a history of behavioral challenges and needs a strong, experienced owner that will be alpha and manage him with positive reinforcement. Third, Tony wants to be the only dog. He could live with another dog or a cat, but really wants to be your only. And finally, no children. Tony can be unpredictable with his behaviors. He is not suited for a lifestyle where there are children.

What is my personality like: When you first meet tony your likely to find a shy dog that will open up to you very quickly. This is, of course, if you are a man. Tony somewhere along in his life has taken the statement that a “MAN’s best friend is a dog” a little to literally. Around men he is an angel. He’s sweet, affectionate, loyal, and just overall a good boy. When women have interacted with him we have seen a completely other dog that gets scared and instantly will resort to barking, snapping, and doing anything he can to not have to deal with them.

His favorite caregiver (male) will tell you that Tony is well behaved, is easily corrected, attached to them like glue, and just a happy bundle of joy that wants nothing more than a good belly rub. Tony loves to get picked up and carried around, and he loves to play a game of fetch. He’s smart and catches onto things quickly and he loves food (which is a wonderful motivator). 

His female caregivers will tell you he is quite the handful that takes some persuasion to win over.

Tony can’t be touched or picked up by women without warning. It takes a good bit of time to build trust for him to let them pick him up. Here at the rescue tony has established good relationships with a few of his female caregivers so it should be noted that he will come around to liking any gender... it will just takes some treats and some time.

How do I act when I first meet new people:

Tips and Tidbits: Tony's estimated birthday is 11/25/2016

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
