Meet our sweet Shaq! He is a super loving guy; he loves humans, both kids and adults, and other dogs. Even though the B52’s song came out way before he was born, it can be said he inspired the line “Cause love rules at the love shack”.

His foster mom says he is a love bug who is all about cuddles. He is always “Huggin’ and a-kissin’, dancin’ and a-lovin’”. Shaq HAS to have another dog in his forever home; he loves the company of other canines. He currently has two dog foster siblings; a female who is his ride or die and a male who is his play buddy. He will make a great addition to an established pack.
He loves all types of toys but bones are his favorites.

Shaq’s favorite flavor is BAAAAACCCCOOONNNN!!! Offer him this flavor treat and you will be fast friends. He works well on leash and will stop when asked. He is very treat motivated which makes training a fun experience.

Shaq is polishing up his manners with his foster mom. “Everybody’s movin’, everybody’s groovin’ baby” – he is working on sitting before going outside, because one of his favorite activities is playing outside with other dogs, so he can get very excited and may jump! He also is learning that gentlemen do not bark quite so much (; 

His ideal adoptive family will be ready to be loving and patient to help him adjust. When he first arrived at his foster home, he was nervous to walk down dark hall ways and did not like being in rooms with the doors closed. 
His ideal adoptive family will also create a safe place in the house for him to feel secure as he adjusts. Shaq has a special spot that his foster family put a bed in for him to have as his safe space as he adjusted which helped him greatly. 

Shaq’s trustworthiness is a epic quality, which owners of pillowing shredding dogs will tell you! He does not need to be crated; his foster mom says that he just chills in the house with his foster sister while they are out. She proudly says that he has not had an accident in the house since the second week he moved in!
