The Oregon Humane Society's Dog of the Day is Sonny (88700).  He is a  four and half year old Rottweiler in need of a special home.  In his previous home, Sonny was having trouble getting along with another male dog, so his owner brought him to the Oregon Humane Society.  Here Sonny has been a bit shy and nervous at first, and will need a home where he can learn to be more confident.  Once he warms up,  Sonny just wants to be pet and cuddled like a giant lap dog.  Sonny's new parents should have experience with Rottweilers, as he does show many breed traits and will need owners who can understand his behaviors.  Sonny can be easily startled, and is sensitive when on leash.  He will blossom with owners who can use positive reinforcement to show him that he doesn't need to be afraid.  Sonny has been around children in his previous home, but would rather go to a home with older children due to his nervousness.  He will also need to find a home without cats, as he does not do well with them. A training consult is included in Sonny's adoption to discuss his sensitivity.  Come meet Sonny at the Oregon Humane Society.

The adoption fee includes spay/neuter microchip ID, collar and I.D. tag, initial vaccines, one month pet insurance, courtesy veterinarian exam, and plenty of post adoption support!
