Meet Russel:

About Me: Russel was found on US1 by the Marina over 1,763 (too long) days ago!

Russel is a great dog that is a Misfit because he carries unresolved dominance issues. What this means is that if you ask Russel to do something, he is a happy and willing participant, but if you tell Russel to do something, things can go South.

In the right hands, Russel is a peach that is playful, will do anything for a treat, is affectionate, loves belly rubs, and even dances!

In the wrong hands, Russel will guard himself and choose dominance over submission.

A family that understands his need for confidence boosting to thrive through routine and structure, can keep him as an only child, and give him the freedom to find his way would provide Russel a life where he can leave the shelter and find his best friend!

Requirements: Martingale Collar; Misfit, Handler Appointment Only; Resource Guarding

I'm currently cared for at H.A.L.O. No Kill Rescue.

I am a H.A.L.O. Misfit

What this means is that in my life time, I have been failed by humans and because of that, I have not learned how to deal with my fears and make good decisions.

At H.A.L.O., the trainers and handlers understand that I am a good dog who just needs someone to hold my paw sometimes and reassure me. If you would like to meet me please just know that it might take some time to get to know me and for me to learn to trust you. Our handlers would love to work with us both to lead us to a healthy, respectful and loving relationship.
