More About Darwin

Check your "doodle" stereotypes at the door! This is Darwin and he may look like the answer to your hypoallergenic-therapy-dog dreams, but he's looking for his own therapy human.

He really needs someone who's patient (Like very patient, we're talking months to get him go through doors, type of patience) that can continue the training he's started here. Darwin would do best in an adult home as your only pet.

The Darwin you first meet at our shelter will be full of energy, unfortunately that energy is not excitement it's anxiety.
If you go at Darwin's pace and use only positive training methods (lots of treats for good deeds), you will see the Darwin we see. The goofy, excited dog that gets proud of himself when he learns something new! Celebrate the small victories and they will lead to bigger ones.

If you are interested in meeting Darwin, or want to know more about him, email behavior@buckscountyspca.org.
