Pikachu – Available in foster

Meet Pikachu!

We don't even know where to start with this pup, Pikachu has made strides since coming to us in August as a stray. He's really learned how to get to know new staff and people quickly, he's slowly learning the outside world isn't so scary. We've learned Pikachu loves car rides, and pup cups! Pikachu is looking for an experienced dog handler home, one that has worked with a dog that is eager to learn and grow. Training must be a priority in his forever home to help Pika in the long run, and confidence building. His home should be prepared to likely have to come meet him a few times before he feels confident to go home.

Pikachu recently went into foster with one of our staff members and here are some things we've learned: He absolutely needs another confident canine companion, he relies on other canines for emotional support, a lot. He is in foster with another playful male, and a female dog. He doesn't seem to mind the feline in home, but any odd movements the feline makes (jumping off of counters, loud thuds, moving cat trees) you can definitely tell he doesn't have a lot of experience with it.

Pikachu doesn't necessarily need a fenced in yard, although his foster has one, because we, at the shelter have history of him being a fence jumper, the foster keeps him on a 40 foot long lead – where he can still have his freedom to run in the fenced in area but in the event of an emergency, there is a back up. If, no fenced in yard – being on a long lead/runner will be important.

Pikachu does phenomenal in his crate, during the day he is crated next to his foster siblings, and appreciates it. At night, the crate is located next to the bed of his foster and that helps him feel like he has company. Pikachu relies heavily on companionship, and he is an excellent dog. Seeing how wonderful he's transitioned into his foster home, we have no doubt he'll be a great companion in his forever home.

Please submit an application if you're interested in meeting Pikachu, and our foster or canine coordinator will reach out.
