Goose deserves his very own forever family after being rescued from a cruelty situation by the Harris Co Cruelty Task Force. Goose had to have his front leg amputated, and while he will never be able to walk long distances on his own, he has found a mode of transportation that makes him a happy boy! 😆🛺 Goose will always be a special needs pup, but he’s more than ready to move to the next phase of life! He needs someone who’s willing to provide patience & unconditional love. He may need physical therapy in the future either at home or with a professional, but that could be as simple as swimming in the pool! At this time, as long as he gets time in the back yard to move about, no extra attention is needed. Most importantly (according to Goose), are his daily walks in the cart/dog jogger. It is his absolute, hands down most favorite thing to do. He will put himself in the cart and wait for you until you’re ready LOL. It is his happy place, where he feels relaxed, and truly where he gets the most joy. ☀️ Having another dog in the home would be preferred, but not required, and the ideal pup would be easy-going and on the medium to large size. Goose would do fine around older kids (teens) who are able to correctly engage, but we are not adopting to anyone with smaller children. This smart boy also understands several commands like No, Sit, Stay, Night-Night, Go Potty! He is curious about cats but learns quickly to respect their boundaries, and ultimately becomes snuggle buddies. Potentially due to his former cruelty situation Goose has developed a fear of people he doesn’t know. With the correct protocol, which means approximately 3 meetings taking maybe 30-60 min, that fear goes away and he has a new BFF. But it’s a must for anyone new he comes around. Goose has come such a LONG way and really deserves someone who wants to show him what the good life is and what it’s like to be loved unconditionally. Plus, he’s got the most beautiful eyes, and that big smile and bottom lip of his will get you every time.
