Sergeant, the Cat Lover – Adopted!

When Glenn Ryerson took Sergeant from Leonard’s transport vehicle, immediately he noticed that this boy has been seriously neglected. Sergeant is being fostered by Jesse to properly socialize him with other dogs. But Sergeant is missing quite a few of his teeth, and the ones that he has are not in great shape. When I asked Dee Sullins to hypothesis as to why a dog would be missing so many teeth, he explained that it’s common when a dog has been tied to a chain most of his life.

Becky Harshman has estimated his age to be approximately 12-18 months, and he comes from Greenville, AL.

Sergeant will be fostered by Jesse, and evaluated in detail shortly.

Update: It appears that Sergeant has made a lot of progress with Jesse in a short period of time. One thing that’s obvious, is that he LOVES cats! Sergeant is affectionate, and wants to please. We’re looking forward to getting more details, and new photos of this wonderful boy.

Update: Jesse does it again! Sergeant has been adopted! I can’t wait for updates. He will have plenty of room to run, like any Border Collie should, and will have two labs to play with. What a dream come true!

    Please bare with me this week, tons to do around here, and limited time for networking.

    Sarge has come a long way since he arrived here at Sit & Stay The Villages, three weeks ago. He definately shows the tell tale signs of abuse and neglect, but he shows no fear of people other dogs.

    Yes, it's true that he loves Murphy our kitten. I've been trying to get some video, even stills, but they play all over the house…quickly! I'll do my best to try to get the mushy stuff; they do that in the privacy of Murphs badly lit room. Sarge has his meals there; he still has some issues with resource guarding with dogs. Funny, I think he'd share with the cat, and he can easily get her food, but he leaves it.

    He does still need some work with his manners, but he gets better everyday. Maybe it's just because I know his tricks, and do my best to set him up for success. He is house trained but, he will cry to go out. Sarge doesn't stray, and comes when called, but needs to work on distractions.

    Sargent's no wiz kid; he's a goofy as they get. He can get a little rough with the other dogs, but means no harm. My "dog crew" handles, ignores him, pretty well. It's a real shame about his teeth, because he does like his toys. If handled correctly , he may still pick-up on fetch of some sort.

    I'll continue to work with Sarge until he's adopted, and I'll be happy to pass along as much information as his new folks can handle when that time comes.
