Kane is around 6 years old. He came into us Heartworm positive, now with his
treatment over he is negative. He is neutered, and has been given all of his
vaccines, and is even already microchipped. He needs to be an only animal,
which is why we are having a hard time adopting him out, and being an animal
control facility with open intake unfortunately he may be at risk soon.
He was adopted out to a family who came in for 2 months straight with their
dog, and he did fine until he was introduced to other dogs. He began having
some territory issues with the dog he lived with after this, and was brought
back. He never fought with the dog, just slight growling. His only other
behavior issues is that he climbs fences so he would either need someone
who was going to not leave him out in a chain link fence for a long period
of time, or a tall wooden privacy fence. He is a great dog, and listens well.
He walks right near you, and if you stop while walking he follows suit and
sits next to you until you're ready to walk again. He loves going on runs,
and adores playing with tennis balls. He's very smart, and would do awesome
with training. He loves to cuddle, and is fine with being brushed. He's a big
people person, and would also make a great protective dog if needed. He's an
overall good dog, who just needs to be by himself. He just needs a chance

Truman is a 5 year old elkhound who was adopted 4 years ago from another rescue group. He didn't have very good manners and it took us quite some time to socialize him with our other dog. He has always struggled with some anxiety issues but is very jealous of other dogs, cats and has major anxiety around strangers. We've worked with Truman as much as we can through exercise, medication from our vet and what training we can provide but with my husband working 2 jobs and homeschooling 3 children we are tapped. He is such a loveable dog-he gets along great with our children and one or two of my son's friends that are frequent visitors but barks non-stop (for hours if we let him) if anyone else is in the house. At this point his barking and anxiety is preventing us from having anyone in the house without boarding him.
Truman really is a big baby and loves attention, snuggling, treats, runs along your bike (our favorite for running out his nervous energy), hikes and being chased around the yard. He would do best in a family where he's a one and only. If not for this anxiety and stranger problem, we would not be letting him go but at this point we do not have any alternative.
He is up to date on all vaccines, neutered and healthy. He is a larger Elkhound, approximately 70 lbs. He is located in Thurmont, MD.
