Stitch

About Stitch

This is Stitch! Stitch is a 70 pound, 7-year-old lab/husky mix with a soft golden coat and dark soulful eyes. Stitch and his brother were introduced to the Happy Tails team when their owner developed allergies and could no longer care for them. This was tough on the boys, and though they had each other. There was a scrap between them and for each of their safety in case they were separated. Stitch misses his family and has been pretty depressed without his brother but he’s been adjusting, first at a farm-shelter and currently with a new foster family. Is Stitch right for you? Needs some good exercise; at least two good walks a day and as much outdoors time as possible. Aside from that, he’s a cuddly couch potato. He loves to snuggle in bed and he’s the best sleeping buddy, and he’ll never step on you or wake you when he gets up for a drink of water. Doesn’t love baths but very politely accepts being washed He is a polite boy! He’ll wait for you to walk out a door first and behave generally like a true gentleman. He needs to be on a leash or he may scamper off until some trust builds between you and him. He is very kid friendly! Introduce him slowly and ask the little ones to respect his space, but he’s been an angel to his foster parents 5-year-old niece and came from a family with children. He’s still adapting so you can expect some whining, a bit of jumpiness, and some howling here and there. Regarding other dogs, he has a bit of a history. Walking him by other dogs, he’ll tug and bark (tail wagging and happy but he is a big boy…); he’s slowly learning every day with his foster family. If you have other pets, you may want to try a trial period and introduce them slowly. Happiest with regular company, so he shouldn’t be alone for extended periods until he’s used to a strong routine. He’s fully potty trained and follows basic commands. Don’t break this boy’s heart, if you decide to adopt him, make it his forever home! He is sweet and full of love.
