Really wants to be with you at all timesList good traits See above, also, playful in a dignified wayAny Health Issues? May have something going on with his thyroid, rescue will be doing a senior blood panel to determine any issues; doesn’t seem to grow hair on his back at a normal rate, eyes are sometimes red and weepy, but that may be because he’s in a house with four long-haired cats.Any bad habits? Barks if left alone or shut up (I think he stops barking when he knows the house is empty, though. Will bark if left in the yard, and wiggle/dig to get back to the house. He snapped at me a few times when he first came here (early December) but seems to be ok with that now. He had no sense of heirarchy or structure then, and pretty much knows and accepts his place in the pack now.Trained to what commands?Sit, Down, ComeLike Doggy Parks? Haven’t taken him to one, as I have a big fenced yard, and he’d rather be inside, it seemsWas this dog abused and how? I don’t know if he was yelled at by a woman a lot, but he definitely likes men more than women.Has this dog ever bitten anyone?Yes, me, when he first came here, but has been very non-aggressive since then. He doesn’t even growl when other dogs growl.Any dog aggression problems? No, but he does get very excited and barks when other dogs are playingAny anxiety separation problems? Yes, pretty much wants to be with you every second. Does ok in a crate, though.Does this dog need a fenced in yard?
