A transfer from another municipality, Raphael was part of a breed operation that was shut down. At approx. 1.5 years old, he comes to us with literally nothing, so we've been working on trustbuilding and leash, and very basic commands like sit and wait. He would need to go with another dog as he follows their lead, and is his most animated when he has a dog friend. He needs a special kind of owner to come forward for him ... someone with experience, patience, awareness to his body language and able to help him through his fear of anything new. He is currently a flight risk so a secure yard is essential. There is no aggression in Rafe; he needs time and one-on-one to build his confidence and trust in humans. No to cats, and no to children at this time.
