Deuce the dog is looking for a new home in the Montréal area

Deuce, a 2-year-old dog, is looking for a loving family willing to take on challenges to provide the home he needs. Having experienced trauma and injuries, Deuce arrives at the shelter with some apprehensions.

His tolerance towards dogs needs to be assessed, he is afraid according to our shelter tests, requiring a delicate approach to any cohabitation. Its history with cats is uncertain, but a slow, monitored introduction is recommended due to its resource protection.

Deuce needs 2 to 3 hours of daily exercise to channel his energy. His level of vocalization may increase when alone, requiring a gradual approach to get him used to these alone times.

Deuce requires an experienced intermediate family capable of understanding his canine language to put him at ease. His reactivity to dogs and his fears require patient desensitization with the help of a professional.

At the vet, Deuce behaves well but may show signs of obsession. Resource protection and cleanliness are areas where guidance and vigilance are needed.

Meet Deuce with the whole family and prepare to invest time, patience and love to help him overcome his fears. He will reward you with unwavering loyalty and deep love once he feels safe.
