Sarge has been with us since the middle of Dec. 2020 and his heath is remarkably improved. He's lost weight, built muscle in his hind end and has a better control on allergies.

This boy is so amazingly endearing and engaging with people. He's doing well with the dogs and cats in his foster home but we think he'd do best with a medium to large K-9 companion. He's a bit afraid of cats and gives them a wide berth.

Sarge doesn't require a lot of exercise. He's okay with a moderate hike on a relatively level trail but his backend tires easily. He's building stamina and muscle mass in his hind legs but old injuries and poor hips will always restrict his distance.

He does love to go in the car and knows how to use a ramp. Sarge is well housetrained and patently waits for his foster family to come home on work days.

He is a giant breed dog that has some not uncommon breed issues - allergies and skeletal-muscular problems. His lovely temperament and good socialization with people make him an exceptional dog.

If you have the heart for the giant breed dog and financial comfort to afford his care, Sarge will steal your heart and be a memorable pet!

SPOT is doing adoptions and surrenders for dogs and cats.  We are adhering to public health guidelines.  We will walk potential adopters through that process as appointments are made.


Also copied here is a portion of Skagit County's official position on Covid-19 regarding pets:


'COVID-19 Skagit County Animal Response Guidelines


Currently there is no evidence that companion animals can be a source of infection to humans or animals. Human to human contact and droplets on surfaces appear to be the biggest threat for transmission. Out of an abundance of caution the following is recommended:


For the Public:

-It is recommended that animals and their owners co-house as often as possible. It is also recommended to plan for your animals' care in case you or your entire house are unable to care for your pets.

-If a person in the home becomes ill, it is recommended that the ill individual limit their contact with the animal and have another family member care for the animals if available. If the ill patient is the only care giver for the animal, the WHO, OEI, and CDC continue to recommend that close contact be avoided, maintain good hygiene practices and wear a face mask if possible.

- Animals may be walked outside on a leash, but should not have contact with other animals or people as long as ill owner is on isolation. It is recommended that animal be bathed after isolation to remove any virus possible on the fur.

-If an owner is ill, hospitalized, or deceased and there is no known family or friends to care for the animal, Animal Control or Law Enforcement may be contacted for removal or care of the animal as deemed appropriate and safe.'
