You do not get much more of a “beat up” life and survive. Capone's was a life that goes against the odds and his survival has been thanks to you and some wonderful individuals with some one on one attention in a fantastic foster home.
Capone underwent a complicated orthopedic surgery to repair an old injury which had left his right leg an inch shorter. He came through the surgery and the following 8 week rehabilitation with flying colors. This people loving, laid back goof just wants his people/kids time now. The rest is a piece of cake! Capone is already house trained and crate trained, great with kids, and gets along well with other dogs with proper introduction.
His foster mom has this to say about him: " The thing about Capone.... he is the proverbial "great personality." If I was setting you up on a blind date with him, I wouldn't spend a lot of time on his looks, I would talk up his personality. He will never turn heads. He will never win a cute contest. Yet every person who meets him is completely enamored with him. Like I said, it is the personality. He is continuing to make great strides in his domestication. He has recently graduated and is no longer sleeping in the crate at night. He now has free reign of the house, and he is killing it! He is learning that when I am talking to him, it sometimes mean I am asking him to do something (sit, back, off, down) and he is starting to listen for voice commands. He is the best house dog, if you don't mind petting a dog from sunup to sundown. He is great with kids, and when I say great, I mean great. We by no means take lightly the interaction between him and our toddler. We watch him like a hawk, we watch all of our dogs like hawks when they are near her. She doesn't know boundaries and she can't read body language, so we are protecting them as much as we are protecting her. So trust me when I say, he is harmless. And this very dog who can snuggle on the dog bed with the toddler is the same one who can play for hours in the back yard. Him and our youngest lab are relentless when they are in the yard together."
