Bayou is Fully SponsoredBayou is a Sanctuary Dog.He is from Washington State. He's a total sweetheart to humans and initially seemed to like other dogs. We were told he hated windshield wipers and crates. He was transported from Washington to Texas via ground transport and on the first day they hit some rain. Bayou started barking at the wipers but when told "No" he laid down and went to sleep. When other dogs joined the trip, Bayou was placed in a crate which was eventually crammed inside the transport van with 9 other crates containing other dogs. The transporter said he had absolutely no problem with him. He also told us that the boarding facility had only nice things to say about him. Bayou came to us while we were down at our Galveston beach house. We crate the dogs we take down there with us. We had absolutely no problems getting him in or out of his crate. And while in his crate, he didn't fuss or paw at it. Unfortunately, after a week or so at the farm Bayou’s true colors began to show and it became apparent that he is extremely dog unfriendly. He goes absolutely ape when he is in a yard next to another dog. He is, therefore, considered to be unadoptable, and will probably be a life-long resident of the farm. Bayou is a big boy. We had a Neopolitan Mastiff once and Bayou has his jaw and his coloring. We really don't know the mix of his breeds for sure, but we do know he's one big, strong, exuberant and friendly guy. He just hates other dogs.Bayou has settled into life here at the farm and is very happy. He has his two-story townhome and loves running up the ramp to his second floor loft. He’s got windows both upstairs and down that let in a nice breeze ... and he can easily watch all the activity around his play yard. We free-feed here at the farm, so Bayou always has kibble in his feeder and can nibble on it any time he’s hungry. He’s loving that! He’s got his toys. And in the summertime, he’s got his swimming pool for when it gets really hot. He can soak during the heat of the day, and then lay out in the sunshine to dry off. How cool is that!Bayou is great with people and loves the attention he gets from the staff here at the farm. We’re just glad we could be here for him.Back to Sanctuary Dogs ListBe a DonorMake a One-time Donation
