There are two bios for Seamus.. One from him and one from his foster mom.. He has taken a little while to adjust to a new home.. but now he is ready to be adopted..

“Hi, I’m Seamus! I’m 4 yrs old, delightfully energetic and so eager to please! I love my foster people, but really want a home that’s mine. I have to “share’ here, which is fine, I get along with all the dogs here, both big and small, but I really want all my Foster Mom’s and Dad’s attention all to myself. I’ll wait for pats, but it’s so hard when I love them so much! FoMom says I’m awesome on a leash……I just want to make her happy, so always check with her by looking back to make sure I’m doing it right. I love it so much when she tells me I’m a Good Boy, that I bounce like Tigger! I know to potty outside, and I know what “Wait” means when at the door, or when it’s dinner time. Inside the house is my happy place, but I really, really like to go for car rides and load up as soon as the car door is open. It’s just so exciting to go for a ride! I will kennel for dinner, but really like to sleep at the foot of my foster parent’s bed….I keep their feet warm. I like my foster brother and sisters, and sometimes what they do outside in the yard is fun to follow, but I just want to be by my people’s side wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. New things are kinda scary, but FoMom says its no big deal and she makes strangers who come to the house give me treats and I like that a lot. Now I’m happy to see a new face cause that means good things! As long as I’m with my people, I know everything is going to be A OK!”

Seamus is such a good boy and so eager to please. He wants you to guide him and give him boundaries. He takes a bit longer than others have in settling in, but when he does, he’s such a pleasure to have around! He’s a velcro boy who truly lives to be at your side, but seems to love both his people equally….ie he’s neither a woman’s dog or a man’s dog, but seems to derive happiness from both of his people. He doesn’t really play or overly interact with the other 3 dogs in the home, and while he’s just now joining in the antics of chasing the cows at the fence, he’d much rather be with you on the porch. He’s just now started chewing on the antlers laying around here, and it’s a sign that he’s relaxing here in his foster home. He’ll need patience while he’s settling in and guidance as that structure helps him to figure out what to expect. He’s just so eager to please, it’s up to you to let him know what that is that will make you happy. He’s so cuddly and sweet and very sensitive to your voice and body language. The more excited you get, the more excited he gets, and vice versa….the calmer you stay, the calmer he stays. He’s amazing on a leash, and loves, loves, loves car rides. He’s done well while walking in new environments and again, only wants to please you. The only bad thing about him is that he can and will escape from a wire crate, so will need an airline crate in his new home. He’ll happily crate for dinner and sit quiet in there afterwards. He’ll enter for treats, and again, will lay quietly until he’s let out. He prefers to keep you in his sight at all times and we’re working through that by crating and leaving for short periods of time and gradually lengthening them. He’s doing great with this, and is much more settled in the airline crate than he ever was in a wire one.

If you would like to meet Seamus, please go to the website, read about Adoption and submit an application.. Or if you already have applied, Contact Us.. Seamus is fostered in Red Rock outside of Austin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This dog is being rehomed by STAR because of the current family situation.. He is approx. 4 years old and 60 lbs. red merle male.. He will be vetted and evaluated in his foster home in Red Rock, Tx. outside of Austin.. He should be available for adoption around the first week in November.

UPDATE:  Seamus is very shy and unfamiliar with everything.. He will most likely not be ready until the middle of December..
