UPDATE: Twister has learned so much in a short period of time.  He watches people’s hands as he has figured out that that is where treats come from.  Show him a treat and he will sit (while drooling). Point to the ground with a treat in your hand and he has started to lie down (while drooling). Shake a cookie container and he will come running (while throwing drool with each puppy leap).  His youngster antics, body structure and mannerisms lead us to believe that he most likely  is less than a year old, as opposed to between one and two years.  He is eager to learn, and needs a home that is committed to investing the time and effort into training a young pup and teaching him manners which he definitely lacks!  Twister can be mouthy at times but responds very well to correction and direction.  He needs a forever home that is willing to show him right from wrong…he is eager to learn, but needs someone to show him the way.  If you are that home, that is committed  to take him to obedience training and spend the time with him to teach him manners, Twister is waiting to meet you (while drooling)! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi All, My name is Twister and I just blew into rescue from the Newark Humane Society. Thanks guys for taking  such good care of me in Newark!  I had a great ride down to South Jersey.  I’m a little guy, about 40 or so pounds.  I’m estimated to be between 1 and a 1/2 to 2 years old.  I am brindle in color and I have a natural tail and ears, AND….I have the perfect “smooshed” in boxer face, just look at that picture!  I’m also one energetic little guy.  Maybe I’ll calm down a little now that I’m able to stretch  my legs more and get to run and play and burn off some of my energy.

The people at Fassa’s Friends don’t know much about my past because the humane society found me roaming on the street.  They do know I am a great smoocher, am happy to go on car rides and walks and look to people for direction.  They have also figured out that I don’t seem to have been taught how to walk well on leash and need a home that will teach me not to pull and jump…but hey, I am young and oh so happy to be out of the shelter that I will learn really fast.   Because I was found as a stray it is preferred that the home that adopts me not have very young kids, but bigger kids, say 10 and up are just fine.  They also think that I would do best in a home without other dogs or cats.  I will chase a cat…they run and I think “game on”.  As for dogs, I may be ok with some dogs, but you have to introduce me very slowly and the other dog must be a calm dog that is well socialized and can teach me how to behave correclty with other dogs.

If you think I am the right match for your home OR YOU WOULD CONSIDER FOSTERING ME UNTIL MY FOREVER HOME COMES TO GET ME, won’t you please send an email to Fassa’s Friends.  You can use the contact box below, or send it directly to fassasfriends@gmail.com or call 856-889-0832.
