Dreams: Meet Trigger, a dog with a heart of gold not letting his past get in the way of his outstanding personality. Trigger came into H.A.L.O. as an owner surrendered. Underweight, open wounds, & a broken soul With a little bit of TLC Trigger’s weight was put back on & his wounds were healed, but he still struggled with his socialization skills. Trigger had trouble trusting new people & going out into public and because of this Trigger was entered into H.A.L.O.’s Misfits program.
The dog trainers & handlers worked together to build up Trigger’s confidence with others. The past 3 months he has been going out into public building confidence, as well as, learning important commands & becoming a Rockstar with them. With Trigger’s new perspective on the world, he meets new people every day & enjoys every second of it.
We still take it easy when meeting new people & going into new environments because he still tends to get nervous & flighty in large crowds & loud places. Every day he has overcome some big hurdles & he still has more to learn, but he is ready to continue his growth in a home of his own. Some of Trigger’s favorite activities are car rides, snuggling in bed, enjoying enrichment toys, & even playing in water.
Trigger was afraid of water before, but now he has learned to have a great time. He plays well with other dogs & enjoys their company, but more than anything he enjoys the company of his person.
We have also been introducing him more to the feline part of the world & while we wouldn’t leave him unattended with the cats, he certainly can live with one supervised.
There are so many wonderful & silly things Trigger does throughout his daily activities. He is a wonderful snuggler as long as you don’t mind his snoring. When he gets excited he does a little tap dance & makes little pig snorts.
Throughout this whole process & seeing Trigger grow into the best dog he can be, we have decided to graduate him from the Misfit program. He will still continue his training until we find the perfect home for this amazing dog!
If you have room in your home and heart to give this boy his forever home, please come meet Trigger today!
