Meet our big, gorgeous, freckle-faced boy, Judd. Not only is he one very handsome Springer boy, he is ridiculously loving, needy and affectionate.
Judd's past is a mystery. He was found as a stray and landed in an area shelter. It was immediately evident to the shelter staff that Judd had very negative experiences with men. Sadly, we're confident he had suffered abuse. When he arrived in foster care, he was unsure of everything. Quickly, though, his true goofy, sweet personality emerged. However, you can still see him cower, or duck, on occasion when you reach for him. His past will take some time to forget. While Judd has made huge strides with men, he can still be very leery and uncomfortable. Hence, we feel Judd would be happiest living with females.
Judd loves his toys, loves his walks, loves to hunt critters and loves YOU! He is darling and playful and still very much a pup. He wants to be snuggled next to you always, always pawing you for more attention. He is incredibly affectionate! Once he knows you, his personality sparkles!
He adores the female Springers in his foster home. He does, however, struggle with the resident male dog. He should do well with another dog or as an only child. He would be happiest in a home where he's not left alone for long periods of time day after day -- a stay-at-home or work-at-home family would be ideal. He does need to be crated when left alone, but does enjoy his crate time. Judd responds to some basic commands and walks very nicely on a leash. Judd can still be skittish, therefore he is really best suited for an adult home. We have not exposed him to cats.
Judd is a young, energetic, healthy boy. He's been neutered, brought current on vaccinations, has tested negative for heartworms and was microchipped for safekeeping.
Judd's ideal family will be patient and soft-spoken, gentle and kind. With some time and nurturing, Judd will be the most amazing companion ever!
Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.
