Mercury

Mountain Cur - Young - Male
Adoptable Medium Spayed/NeuteredColumbus-area onlyUp-to-date with routine shots

Breed: Mountain Cur
Sex: Male, neutered
Estimated Birth Date: October 2020
Size: Currently 25 pounds but estimated to be 45-50 pounds when full grown
Good With Kids: Yes, but we will only place with children 4 and older. He is energetic and may knock down toddlers
Good With Cats: Yes
Good With Other Dogs: Yes
Housetrained: In progress. He is starting to alert his foster when he needs to go out
Crate trained: Yes. He sleeps in it at night but will bark during the day if he hears people in the house

Recommended Environment: He will need plenty of exercise and attention. Since he is a bigger boy with lots of energy, we feel he would do best in a home with children over the age of 4. Since he is still young, he will need work with basic commands and leash training.

Additional Information: Mercury (or Moose, as his foster is calling him) is a typical puppy with spurts of energy and snuggles in between. He is intelligent and praise and treat motivated so training should be easy. He is currently in a foster home with children, a cat, and another dog. He is shy about meeting new people but warms up quickly. Since he is not fully vaccinated yet, we prefer to place him in the Columbus, Ohio area so that we may complete his veterinary care.
