Puck is an outgoing, rambunctious puppy with a typical terrier personality who is looking for a loving forever home with someone who will cherish him, make positive reinforcement touch training a priority and always keep him safe. Puck just turned 5 months old on 3/15/23.
Originally adopted by a family unaware he is deaf and visually impaired, once it became apparent, they realized his needs were beyond their abilities.
Now, Puck is in co-foster while searching for his forever fit.
An Embark panel has been done for both breed identification and health. Puck is a double merle, and he has one copy of a gene variant putting him at some risk for developing Primary Lens Luxation. He has an April appointment with an eye specialist to assess the current quality and quantity of his eyesight and will need periodic eye exams throughout his life.
He has been started on hand and touch signals, and will be introduced to a vibration collar as well. However, he is very much a puppy and will need someone dedicated to providing him with continued training in a positive and consistent manner.
The ideal placement should include someone who is retired, works from home, or can take Puck to work with them. You should also have, at least some, experience with positive reinforcement training and terriers.
Prospective adopters should want to meet Puck in person and be prepared to make more than one visit, if needed. Someone who is willing to bring him to continued training sessions (with our or another approved instructor) will be given preference.
