Logan arrived at the ScPA when he was an estimated eight months old, and it is clear that he has had no training whatsoever. This is the age when many of our dogs arrive. They are taken on as puppies (given away free, usually) and it is assumed that they will grow into perfect adults with no effort at all. When they reach about a year old they get either too big or too strong; all those niggles that require either dog training school or at least a bit of attention, and lo and behold they are dumped. A black shepherd cross with a white chest, Logan doesn’t look anything special, especially in a country when black male dogs are always at the bottom of the heap for adoptions, but he will be a great dog. He is fine with other dogs, and although he hasn’t been on the lead much he is getting better already. Dogs like Logan are one of the reasons the ScPA is there. We take in many dogs who have just outgrown their usefulness to the families they thought loved them. Let’s show Logan that the best is yet to come.
