Clark’s Story

History:  Clark came from Doha, Qatar. He was picked up as a puppy and spent a year in boarding.  He developed allergies and demodectic mange.  He went into a foster home in Doha and was transferred to the US where he would have a better chance of getting his skin conditions under control.

About: Clark is a Qatari street dog.  His breed background likely includes sighthounds including the Saluki, or Persian Greyhound.  Clark has been great with the other dogs in his foster home (male and female) and his foster mom has done a great job of socializing him with dogs outside the family.  Clark will need a home with another playful dog or an active family that would include him in daily walks or activities.  Clark is a very rough player so he would do best with a medium size or larger dog.  Clark has prey drive so no cats or small animals for him.   Clark is not a hyper, high energy dog in the house, but he LOVES walks and his foster mom hasn’t ever seen him tire on a walk.  Clark walks very well on leash.  Clark is very quiet and rarely barks.  Clark is 100% an awkward, derpy dog.  Examples:  He is great in the car, but often rides facing backwards staring at the occupants of the car behind them.  He loves to play with other dogs, but his moves are a little unique and utilizes the “just fall over” move a lot.  His favorite treat is bananas.  He stands to eat his meals, but then carries the bowl to a more comfortable place to savor every last lick. One of the few things he likes to bark at are birds, often while jumping as if he could actually catch one in flight.  (Watch all of his videos to see more of his hilarious, awkward behavior).  Clark loves himself some good pets and scratches, but he is not an in your face, lick your face, on your lap kind of guy.  Clark’s foster family has a downtown condo and he does not seem completely comfortable with the hustle and bustle of downtown, but he would likely be fine in a “neighborhood” in the city.
