Digby (#170714) 

Digby is a 1 yr old yellow neutered male.  He weighs 68 lbs, is up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.  He is good with dogs but unknown with cats.  Digby is approved for kids 10 and up. 

Digby is a very, very smart, focused dog. He will do what he thinks is a good idea if not given constructive, positive input. He has progressed very well in a lot of areas (manners) and seems to be familiar with life in a house. We have worked hard with Digby on his "containment phobias" and he is doing well in a crate but would probably thrive the best with someone that is around a lot. He loves to play with other dogs and people. He is good on leash when walking. Digby is the kind of guy that would do great if he had a job, like agility, and may do well with a runner or avid walker, not because he is overly energetic but because he does best if he has a reason and purpose in his life. Digby is not the guy for a first time dog owner but would do great with someone with experience that can guide him give him positive reinforcement.

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Feb 22, 2018: Digby is back through no fault of his own. His adopter had a severe allergic reaction. Digby was not crated with his adopter as they worked from home and we are having to "retrain" Digby on the crate because he is not a huge fan but we will get him back in to the habit. Digby really needs an adopter who can give him focus. Maybe a runner or someone who wants to do agility with him would be awesome! He would also love someone who was home more than not to limit his time in the crate. He is such a super sweet guy and loves other dogs. He will make the right someone very happy! 

Update from Digby's Foster Family - Mar 13, 2018: Digby is making great progress at his foster/trainer. We are working hard on his comfort level in a crate but if he had an adopter that was home a lot he would not need the crate much. He is looking for someone to keep him focused and occupied as he has a busy little mind but if he is exercised and stimulated properly, he can also be a couch potato and just chill with his humans, which he loves. He loves going for walks and playing in the yard with his foster buddies See him play on Youtube:
