Cane Corso Rescue, Inc. has recently welcomed Walter into the family. Another handsome, young fellow who found himself in a Michigan shelter wondering what he ever did to deserve this. Information is still coming in on Walter but we are elated to report that he is safe and in the arms of a temporary foster. Walter will need a foster or adopter within the next two weeks (by March 19) so if you are interested in helping Walter please submit an application to foster or adopt OR if you are already approved and willing to open your heart and home to Walter in his time of need contact CCR. Additional information will be shared once his temporary foster (and savior) has had the opportunity to spend a bit more time with him.
Update 3.3.16: Walter has been free and in the home of his temporary foster for a little over a day. He is very comfortable inside the home indicating he was a house dog. He is crate trained and readily enters. Sir Walter enjoys playing with his gigantic chew bone. He is definitely an overgrown puppy and could be most accurately described as a “one man wrecking crew with a tail that never stops wagging”. Sir Walter is as sweet as they come but he will need a confident leader who is devoted to ensuring he receives training as he lacks manners. His response to being growled at from one of the canine residents was to tuck his tail and run for cover! What a boy!!! Apparently Sir Walter is smart enough to know you don’t mess with a dominate female!
Walter’s Shelter intake information: While at the shelter, a volunteer sister-rescue paid Sir Walter a visit. She was thoroughly impressed by him and said had her rescue had room for him; he would have departed that day. They did not so CCR was contacted. Sir Walter showed no reaction to other kenneled dogs; he ignored other dogs or appropriately engaged through the kennel with a sniff then moved on. This shelter does not have the ability to conduct ‘direct’ dog evaluations but his non-reactive behavior is PHENOMENAL. The volunteer describes Sir Walter has an overgrown puppy, who is food motivated and eager to please (sounds like a Corso-lol). He is a smart boy and takes treats with a soft-mouth. Sir Walter is a very social boy; he tolerated all body explorations and appropriately accepts correction and restraint.
Because of Sir Walter’s very large stature, non-stop tail wagging, and lack of manners, CCR feels it best to place him in a home with no children or in a home with children over the age of 8 years. Sir Walter has not been evaluated with cats or small dogs so it best he not be placed in a home with felines or small dogs.
Sir Walter has been completely vetted, neutered, micro-chipped, and is current on heartworm and flea/tic prevention. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Sir Walter, please complete an application and we will process as quickly as possible.
