Update 2.12.14: Sarge’s foster family wanted to ensure you all received an update on him, “Sarge is a total sweetheart. He ADORES children, he is so gentle with the little boy down the street. When Jude cried, Sarge stepped in with kisses. He loves the ladies at the nursing home, and gladly steals kisses there too! The kissing bandit! We walked downtown and passed a local winery, and boy did his step have pep, so many people, and Sarge greeted them very quiet and accepted the attention. As much as I love him and his sweet nature, he needs a family with child/children, as he sits and watches out the front window when he hears the school bus, knowing there will be kids getting off. When out in the yard and he hears them talking and sees them playing, his tail wags non stop and he wants to go over to them. He has excellent leash manners, every once in awhile, he may tug on the leash, but its nothing. He will stay right next to your leg with his neck/shoulder. Perfect couch snuggler! Get your apps in for this sweet boy…he is ready to come home!
Sarge has recently been welcomed into the Cane Corso Rescue family. He is currently in a boarding kennel and will be going to his foster family next weekend. As you can see by his photos, he is one handsome ‘all natural’ boy. In addition to his handsome stature, Sarge is just as beautiful on the inside as he is a certified emotional support mastiff. Sarge has been neutered, micro-chipped, and is current on vaccinations and preventatives for heartworm and fleas/ticks. Our volunteer declares, “this formentino boy is amazing!!! Sarge is sweet and calm and is in fact, perfect!!! Sarge is too cool for school and ready to change someone’s life for the better so get your applications in to adopt this hunk of burning love”.
Intake Information from the President of Cane Corso Rescue:
Sarge was surrendered to a TX shelter. The owners brought him in the shelter IN HIS VEST (he was/ still is a Certified Emotional Support dog for a 13yr old). They claim he is “dog aggressive” and kept “getting out” . Mind you, he has met several dogs face to face, including a chihuahua, over the last 2 wks we’ve had him. He’s been great but we’ve done PROPER INTRODUCTIONS!! Animal control told us that Sarge has been “in here” several times. Clearly the owners were not capable of owning and caring for this magnificent breed (or any dog at that.) On the paperwork they stated Sarge was kept in a garage or yard for up to 13hrs. We’d “get out” too if we were left in a yard or garage for 13hrs everyday.
