Nathan – 2022

September 25, 2022

Nathan (aka Nate or Nate the Great) is doing really well in his foster home. He’s been here since 9/8. He absolutely adores young children and all people. When the grandchildren visit, he sleeps in the room where the youngest (3-year-old) grandchild sleeps and he follows her around. He also follows the 9-year-old grandson. When the grandchildren aren’t around, he follows foster mom and foster dad around, if not following the resident dog. He loves pets and belly rubs. He rides well in a car, and actually took a 4 hour trip to Lake Lure last weekend. He is great at meeting new people, although a little shy at first (but no growls or barks). He barks at the mail carrier and when there is a knock at the door. Nate is heartworm positive, so he will need to go through those treatments before he can go to his forever home. He is just beginning to show some interest in toys. He loves bones and treats. We are working on teaching him his name and on basic commands. Although he doesn’t know “Sit” and “Stay” (or “Wait) yet, he is not overly aggressive about trying to rush to his food bowl when it’s placed. He has not been tested with cats, but barks when he sees one outside. He has an old injury to his back leg, which will be evaluated this week (he sometimes keeps weight off it when standing, but he walks on it just fine). This sweet, handsome, loving boy is going to bring lots of joy and snuggles to some lucky family. Maybe it’s you?
