Warlock

2 year old male Great Dane

Warlock had a pretty rough start at life. Although we don't know his history, it's pretty easy to guess. Warlock was got as a puppy and whoever had him didn't take the time to train him. 
Great Danes gain 100 pounds in 7 months. Warlock got big, fast! Instead of commiting to training, Warlock was given to the shelter.
In the shelter, Warlock was stressed and scared. The combination caused him to be about 20 lbs unerweight when he came to us.
​A 100 lbs dog isn't easy to control-add on that Warlock is deaf and you NEED a professional trainer, familiar with the breed and familiar with deaf dogs. Lucky for Boxers and Buddies, we have the PERFECT trainer here! Warlock was quick to learn and eager to please. Within 3 days, ALL of his bad behaviors had stopped. Within a week, Warlock was a model boy (albeit a bit too clingy to his foster mom).
Whomever adopts Warlock will have to commit to continued training to keep him on the right path, but we see nothing but sunshine ahead for this boy!

APPLY HERE FOR ADOPTION
Before you adopt, we would like to request that you consider few things:
 1. Dogs may live for 15 years.  Are you able to make a long term commitment for the duration of your dog’s life?  Please consider that your lifestyle may change.  You may not have the same job where you are able to come home at lunch, you may not have the same roommate,  you may graduate from school or move to a smaller house.  You may have a baby, get married or get a divorce.  Are you going to be able to make a commitment to a dog and make it work even when/if your life changes?  People don’t dump their children because of these life changes, but many dogs end up in a shelter or rescues because their owners do not make the same kind of commitment.  If you think that you may not be able to make a commitment to make it work, then we kindly request you reconsider adoption.
2. No dog is perfect, just like people are not perfect.  It requires work to make things work.  Your expectations needs to be realistic.  Do you have small children or a baby?  Dogs have the average develepomental level of a 18 month old to 3 year old child. They need love and attention.  If your life is busy and you don’t have a lot of time for your new dog, we ask that you reconsider adoption.
3. Are you familiar with the breed?  If not, you may want to look into fostering with us before making a decision to adopt.  .
4. Do you have the financial means to care for the dog?  Annual food and medical cost can add up.  Even for a healthy dog, the first year can cost up to about $2,000 if you include the basic supply listed below, food, treats, toys and vet bill.
5. Are you older and wanting to adopt a young energetic dog?  Please think about more mature dogs that need homes.  Everyone wants a young dog but if you are a mature human being, please consider more mature dogs that have been waiting for their forever homes for a long, long time.  They are just like you and need TLC.
