Courtesy Post - Fairbanks
This is a courtesy post for a dog available from another source other than Sunny Saints. Sunny Saints has not met or evaluated this dog and cannot confirm any of the information below provided by the owner. Direct any inquiries to the owner via contact information provided below.
FAIRBANKS is a two year old neutered St. Bernard that we acquired as an emergency foster. He was originally purchased by a woman from a breeder in Alaska. His previous owner was not well educated in Saints and he began to develop some behavioral issues due to lack of structure and training. This began to present as aggression towards people and reactive lunging. She was about to drop him off at a shelter, but we intervened.
After decompressing in our care and through training, Banks has gotten over his behavioral issues towards humans. He is very neutral and solid with dogs - big and small (we have a papillon mix and some Mals and he is great with all). He loves his people and will greet us with a big body wiggle whenever he sees us. Also good with respectful kids as long as there’s supervision present. He absolutely loves car rides (and when I say love I mean LOVES AND LIVES FOR) and will jump in the car at any moment to go on an adventure.
We would love to see Banks go to a home that has the space for him to roam about and will take him on car outings and slow, long walks. He has a bit of weakness in his hind end so light exercise and mental stimulation is enough for him. He was an apartment dog so he is housebroken, but might need a refresher.
Important to note - Banks has epilepsy and it is well managed with his twice daily Keppra. He hasn’t had a single seizure in our care and the medication is quite affordable at about $50/month.
Fairbanks is e-collar trained and comes with two virtual go home sessions and a full month supply of medication.
Please help us place this gentle giant in a home of his own for the holidays!
