Holy legs Turkey man! This handsome fella is Turkey and is a 2 year old Hound/Shepard mix (best guess). Turkey was returned to the shelter in March of this year after he started showing signs of resource guarding. Since being at the shelter, Turkey's people have been taking every chance they get to work on "what's mine is your's" with him to allow him to be the very best boy! Turkey loves to run in the play yard and walks fairly well on his leash when he is being taken out by staff members. Turkey will thrive best with an active family who can provide daily runs and weekend hikes! A new family for our Turkey will also need time and patience available to devote to exercise, training and socialization. Turkey will sit for his treats, but tends to guard his food. Turkey is seeking an adult only home with no kiddos in the home or visiting the home due to guarding. He will need an owner committed to having no dog toys or high value items in the home. Turkey will need a family without feline friends or small animal critters in the house due to his high prey drive. Dog siblings will be dependent on a meet and greet basis. Following adoption, staff highly recommends waiting at least 4 weeks until working on outside of household introductions. An owner with experience with behavioral / guarding issues is highly recommended. If interested in adopting Turkey, please visit www.lebanonhumane.org for all the details on our current adoption process. View full description »
