ADOPT ME: Bane is a big boy who loves the outdoors

This Portuguese cattle dog would do best in a home with no other pooches

CollingwoodToday, in partnership with the Georgian Triangle Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.
Meet Bane, the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) pet of the week.

This handsome dog is a big boy, weighing almost 90 pounds. He has been at the GTHS for nearly 60 days as he patiently waits to be adopted into a new forever home.

Bane loves to play, and he is a fan of the great outdoors. He enjoys going for walks. However, his leash skills could use a bit of work. The GTHS team says he is a smart dog who likes to learn new things, so with some time and training, he’ll become a great walking buddy. As Bane tends to display some reactivity to other dogs and sometimes to people, as well, it will be vital that he is adopted to a family who has experience with dogs and dog body language. A home with people 15 years and older and no other dog in the home is recommended.

He is also in the Special Paws program because he is on a special vet-line diet for his skin. It’s best that he stays on this diet as his skin will become itchy without it.

Finally, it’s important to know Bane is a Portuguese cattle dog, which is a type of livestock guardian breed. These types of dogs are courageous, loyal and loving with their families. They can be weary of strangers and require owners who can continue with training as they are very intelligent.
