MIGHTY had been waiting at the Brooklyn location of our city shelter since August 2016 by the time we learned of him in Jan. 2017. We’d met him a few times but didn’t have foster available for this tiger hunk. After one of his advocates and shelter volunteers, Jane, reached out to us, despite being quite full, we simply decided to say YES! Jane picked this patient boy up on Feb 4, 2017 and took him directly to New Hampshire where we have enrolled MIGHTY in an incredible training program at the highly regarded Gail Fisher’s All Dogs Gym. He successfully graduated from a six week training program that got him adoption ready and fully briefed on his manners and cues.
His training focused on manners; sit, stay, wait at the door, walk on a loose leash, settle, come when called, no counter surfing, leave-it and other appropriate home and obedience manners exercises.
Mighty is super sweet and very willing to work at all times. He is food and love motivated. He is a very kind dog and his trainers say they truly enjoyed working with him! Mighty also walks well on leash using his gentle leader, similar to a horse bridal but for dogs.
Mighty is family friendly, beautifully crate trained and has tested with minimal interest in cats. He is good with other dogs but prefers calmer dogs. His best home will be with someone who is do savvy and has some dog training knowledge (trained their own dogs in the past, etc.) as he is a strong dog. Overall his temperament is great – he LOVES people! If you are in NY, NJ, CT, PA, VT or NH click HERE to fill out an adoption application for him.
