Meet Seger, a handsome, physically fit, playful fella who has been waiting at Harvest Hills for quite a while.
Seger is 11 years old. A shelter is no place for an 11 year old dog, and he is there through no fault of his own. His previous owner was moving and didn’t take Seger along. Seger is listed as a Lab/Boxer mix. He’s slim and in very good shape.
I would never have guessed he is 11. He seems like a much younger dog.
When the shelter staff went to get Seger from his kennel, they warned me that he had an ongoing feud with Oreo the cat. Seger can’t live with cats, but this one cat in particular seems to really set set him off. Sure enough, Seger walked along the aisle of kennels and when he got to Oreo’s spot Oreo started hissing at him and Seger had a similar, though dog-like, response. No cats for Seger. (And I don’t think Oreo enjoys dogs much, either). The shelter thinks Seger should be an only pet.
When Seger met me and my husband, he was immediately friendly and enjoyed attention. He was happy to be out in the play yard, and spent some time running around and exploring.
He is very food motivated. He would sit easily for a treat, but he also likes to talk to you when he wants
the treat and you aren’t giving it to him yet.
Speaking of food, Seger needs a special food due to allergies to chicken and lamb. Please don’t let that stop you from considering him as a family member.
It was really, really hot that day. Hence the tongues out in most of the photos. Mine was out, too.
When I got out some prop that I wanted him to wear, I can’t remember what it was, he took one look at it and went in the other direction. He said “I’ll just stay over here till you get rid of that thing.” I don’t blame him.
I told him never mind and I put it away. Then he came back.
He loves to roll…
And he loves to get belly rubs…especially at the end of a hot photo session. Please share to help Seger find the perfect home for his retirement years! The shelter environment is very stressful for him.
