Memo:

What a striking boy Ramsey is! Ramsey was transferred to HSSC from a local overcrowded shelter when his time was up and he had nowhere else to go. He's an outgoing, excitable boy who has never met a stranger in his life. At around 3 years old, Ramsey is still full of youthful energy, and he'd love to find an active family who will make sure he gets plenty of daily exercise. Ramsey absolutely adores playing with toys, and tends to get a bit overzealous, so we recommend he doesn't play with small children. Even though he's a short guy, Ramsey is about 60 pounds. Though he's a little overweight, he will be back to an ideal weight in no time with a good diet and plenty of exercise. Ramsey is excited to meet you, so come on in and ask for Ramsey today! Since Ramsey is one of our long-term dogs, we offer a special "Slumber Party" with him! The slumber party is an extended trial period where Ramsey stays in your home for 3-30 days. HSSC will provide all of his food, medications, and necessities during this time. Should you fall in love with Ramsey during this time, you simply return to HSSC to complete the adoption and live happily ever after. Should you decide that Ramsey is not right for you, you just bring him back to HSSC, and know that with feedback about his behavior, you have helped us look for the best home for him. Let us know if you are interested in this offer! Below, we give a little explanation as to why Ramsey needs a home which accommodates his special needs: Ramsey is a resource guarder. Resource guarding stems from jealousy and competition in which Ramsey feels inclined to protect items he deems valuable (especially toys) from humans/animals that he deems as potential threats. This silly guy just can't get enough of his toys! For this reason, we believe Ramsey would thrive best in a home without cats, without children under 12 years old, and without other dogs. If you are still interested in Ramsey, our experienced staff will be happy to further inform and prepare you for Ramsey's resource guarding.
