THE STORY:

Davy is a one year old terrier mix at the Humane Society for Hamilton County—and he may just have the best smile in the world. We wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t feel like smiling much after his owner abandoned him in a friend’s garage last summer. Kennel life is pretty tough for a puppy, especially one as frightened as Davy was. He spent most of his time trembling in his kennel, too afraid to trust anyone. Luckily, our friends at Paws & Play saw the makings of a great dog in Davy and let him stay with them for a while.

At Paws & Play, Davy learned lots of his basic manners like sit, stay, leave it, and walking nicely on a leash. His confidence skyrocketed and he learned how much fun human playmates are. He also learned that he LOVES other dogs! He plays nicely with dogs of all shapes and sizes and has great social skills.

Since going through the Train to Adopt program at Paws & Play, Davy is a happy, playful, snuggly guy. However, he is still nervous in new situations, and he does not always know how to handle his emotions. Davy’s foster mom has worked to help him build positive associations with new people and things, but he still needs some practice.

Davy’s best chance at success is working full-time with a trainer who can help him build his confidence in new situations and learn to control his emotions while communicating with new people. While we no longer feel general adoption is the best option for Davy, we are not ready to give up on this little guy. We know Davy is going to be a great dog for somebody, but he needs a little help getting there. We have found a rescue with a trainer who is ready to work with Davy if we can raise enough funds to cover the $1,000 rescue fee.

Davy’s bags are packed and he is ready to go… can you help us give Davy something to smile about?
