Domino won our hearts, at first out of sympathy–an owner surrender, he was initially terrified in the shelter and we all identified and ached. Now, our hearts ache from growing so large with love for this absolutely amazing dog. What a smile! What leash manners! And so handsome! His former owner reports that he used to sleep with their children wit whom he played so gently, was kind to other dogs and grownups, and doesn’t mind a thunderstorm or having food taken away from him– more than we can say about ourselves on both counts. This 1 year-old has never not known a family environment,
and we’re praying that this state of anxious limbo will be a very distant memory very soon! He’s so deserving, and so dear, and we know there are children out there who are dreaming of a dog like Domino sleeping beside them!

The RCA Victor dog has a double! Meet Domino!!! So handsome in his pristine white coat and black facial markings, Domino was surrendered by his family due to landlord issues. His family had him since he was born, and he is understandably shaken up by their abandonment. We’re told he’s housetrained (yes he ‘went’ as soon as we were outside), is gentle with both adults and children, he slept with the children in the house, he’s crate trained but doesn’t like it and is well behaved when left home alone so the crate isn’t needed. He loves to play with his toys and play fetch, he’s playful and respectful with other dogs, and his favorite things to do are to eat and to sleep. And, he’s also shy with strangers, and of all the wonderful attributes about which we’re told, his shyness is what we are seeing right now. He doesn’t know us, we’re all strangers in this new and scary place and Domino isn’t comfortable with that. He comes forward in his kennel to be leashed, and we walk to the park, Domino showing off his lovely leash manners are we walked and talked. He noticed but ignored all the many dogs out in the park, and in the backyard sniffs others politely through the fence and wags his tail gently. Domino is camera shy so I couldn’t capture how very good looking he is, so you’ll have to trust me that he’s good looking and beautifully cared for. He’ll take treats from my hand, and after a while allowed me to touch him, but as he clearly wasn’t comfortable with it I settled for just a running conversation. He comes when I call him, and walks by me often so clearly is making the effort. Domino will open up and be the amazing family dog he is; he just needs the family to believe in him, love him and give him the space and time he needs to adjust. Will you be the lucky person to make him yours?
