#3008 Sokar

ID #: 3008 Age: 8 months Gender: male Status: in-progress

Hi everyone…my name is Sokar and I’m eight months old.  I am from Egypt and have been in Canada for about a month and I love it.  Everyone has been so kind to me and I’m getting the hang of things really quickly.  I already know my English commands.  I’m learning the leash thing and my recall is getting better every day.  I do have one problem however ~ it’s a thing called ‘hip dysplasia’.  Now I am on medication and some hydrotherapy would also help.  The vet says I may be fine on meds and proper exercise but it’s also possible I might need an operation in the future.  In the meantime, I get around fine and do all normal doggie things.  I just need to not get too boisterous with running and jumping and I’m getting the hang of that as well.  My amazing foster dad describes me as ”a great boy ~ very loving, easy to train, very friendly with people and other dogs, and loves life and playing”.  I think those are all really good things, right?  I am a good listener.  I am gentle with my treats.  I like being touched.  I do bark at other dogs but once I get a chance to sniff them, I’m totally cool.  I am gentle with my treats.  Loud noises don’t bother me.  I’m a lover, not a fighter and I’m learning it’s okay to be left alone if you have to go out.  Well, that’s about it for me.  I hope you will consider me to me be a part of your family.  Apart from my hip thing, I’m told I’m a really good boy who has adapted to Canada beautifully.  Not bad for a little Egyptian boy…eh?
