Einstein is a 2 year old male Cross-Breed. Sometimes, it takes some of our dogs a little longer to find their forever family. That’s because they need a special family, one who will not only make them a part of their family but is willing to go the extra mile. They appreciate the best things in life take time and dedication. They will have patience and understanding to nurture, encourage and teach them to reach their full potential.
They will share a journey together that will bond them, they will learn to trust and love each other. Einstein is one of those dogs, he has been overlooked so many times, although in a fabulous foster home, it is sadly just temporary. So let’s make 2021 the year Einstein finds his forever family and he can finally go home. He has been waiting his whole life for this.
This is Einstein’ story, he was born at our shelter, Happy’s after his mum was thrown over our shelter wall heavily pregnant. Luckily all her puppies survived. Sadly though he spent he spent his whole puppyhood at our shelter, until he travelled to the U.K. and went to one of our most experienced foster homes, where he has made great progress. This is what his wonderful foster mum had to say.
“Einstein came to us in August 2019. He is 2 years old, medium size (21kg) and neutured. At first he was very shy and scared. He spent the first week in the utility (the place he chose as safe), where he ate and slept. Slowly over the next few weeks he started to venture out into the rest of the home. He now spends his day following us about or sleeping along with our girls. As Einstein has become more comfortable in the home he has shown us how loving he really is, he plays well with our 2 older girls (both Romanian rescues). He loves a fuss and cuddle, his favourite treat is a carrot!
Sadly Einstein still finds the outside of our home scary and the thought of others coming into his safe space also scary. This means any introductions will need to be done very slowly and over an extended period. Einstein likes to play with dogs he knows and has good recall in secure areas. Einstein used to inhale his food but this has slowed down greatly. Einstein sleeps downstairs with the girls. He is fine to be left alone.
Einstein likes to go for walks in remote areas, but can become unsettled and reactive on seeing strangers and other dogs, we are working with the 1 dog behaviourist on this issue. Einstein likes to please and will happily sit and stay, if he is in the right mood he will play ball, he likes to play tug with humans and a good chomp on an antler, mostly he just likes to be nearby. He would love someone at home all day and someone that he can follow about in the home and garden. Einstein likes routine, due to his fears of the outside world, sudden noises and quick movements so he will need to go to an experienced home that is prepared to allow for Einstein to progress at his own pace, for that reason he is not suitable to a busy household”.
Einstein is a loyal and loving boy who enjoys the company of his people but can be left alone for short periods of time. He has made a huge amount of progress in understanding home life. Einstein loves to play with the other dogs in the home and takes a lot of confidence from them, but he can be dog selective so he would need to meet any new canine housemates a few times.
Einstein can be very nervous of new people and visitors so his new home will need to have very few visitors and be willing to work where his fosterer left off, to continue his training plan. We would expect his new adopters to need to visit him on multiple occasions to really get to know him before he goes home with them. Einstein is not suitable to live with children.
