Caesar is 55 pounds of pure joy with 110% devotion to his family! When he came to ACES, he had a case of pneumonia and a very serious kidney infection. After a round of antibiotics, Caesar is feeling much better. He has gained weight and we've seen his personality blossom! Caesar is pleasure to have around and one of the easiest foster dogs we’ve had. At 5 years old, Caesar is the perfect gentleman inside the house. He obeys voice commands, doesn’t chew things, doesn’t jump on the counters or on people, and is completely housetrained. He clearly loves to be around people and is pretty much always at our side. When his foster mom comes home from work, he greets her at the door with relentless joy and enthusiasm. When it’s time to eat, he pounces around with anticipation as he waits eagerly for his food bowl. And when he thinks it’s time to go for a ride in the car, he quivers with excitement, practically inserting his nose through his collar when his foster mom is getting him ready to go.
Wherever Caesar may be in the house, we often find his favorite tennis ball nearby. He frequently carries the ball around the house with him and keeps it close so that if someone is willing to play fetch, he can be ready at a moment’s notice! Caesar clearly prefers humans, so it’s taken him some time to get used to playing with his foster siblings. At first, he didn’t quite seem to understand the games that his foster sister, Lily, likes to play. For example, Lily thinks that the rope is meant for the tug-of-war game, but Caesar thought that every toy was meant for a game of “fetch” with the humans and “keep-away” from the other dogs. However, he has quickly come around to Lily’s way of thinking and loves to play her silly dog games in the back yard. Caesar would do best with one other easy-going, playful pup in the family; he would also be fine as an only dog.
Caesar is a very smart and loyal dog. He loves to go outside and check things out, but then he’s ready to come back inside and snuggle. Ceasar is a joy to have around and will be a blessing to his new family.
We hope you find a loving family to play fetch with very soon! Steve, Teri and Miss Sydney Sauer
CAESAR'S SUCCESS STORY (4/10)
We just thought you might like an update on Caesar. He is doing great. He is getting the hang of the electric fence. He knows if he hears the beeps he needs to turn around and come back into the yard. Elsa and him are getting along really well. They play together now and I leave them together during the day when I am at work.
He really loves the birds. He sits and stares at them for a long time. He is very funny and thinks he is a lap dog. He doesn't realize he is 60 pounds! He is very much a sweetheart and loves my boys. He has fit into our family very well and we are looking forward to him having a long happy life with us.
