Meet Clifford

Add to favourites

Meet Clifford, a magnificent big brown dog who is eagerly awaiting his forever home! Clifford is a stubborn sweetie that comes with a unique set of challenges that only add to his charm. Currently recovering from an enucleation, Clifford’s strong spirit and resilience shine through despite his health concerns. Clifford faces depth perception issues due to his eye condition, yet he navigates his surroundings well. His stubbornness can pose a challenge, especially when it comes to getting into kennels, crates, or cars, but we’re diligently working on behavior modification using positive reinforcement to make these experiences more comfortable for him. His future family should be dedicated to continually working on these issues. High-value treats like chicken, peanut butter, and even a little Cheese Whiz have proven effective in helping to encourage Clifford, but every now and then, his stubborn side takes over. At the shelter, Clifford’s interactions with staff showcase his true, loving nature. While we haven’t had the chance to test Clifford’s compatibility with other dogs, we’ve been informed that he can be occasionally frightened by them and has also shown barrier reactivity towards the other dogs in our care. A home with no other animals is needed. Clifford can sometimes be mouthy and jumpy when overexcited, and due to his size, a household without children is best.

For the right person or family, Clifford promises a heartwarming companionship like no other. If you’re ready to open your heart to a big-hearted dog in need, Clifford is waiting to become your loyal and loving companion! Clifford would love to go into a home while recovering from his eye surgery! 💙🐾
