Here is an update on Salt now that he has been in a dog savvy, loving, foster home.
Salt has been in "therapy" training after we consulted a specialist in rehabilitating problem dogs. He has responded with all the intelligence and sensitivity we knew he had. Salt is getting on much better with his canine and human companions. He still has some "arguments". Salt is like a strong and willful teenager and needs someone who will not baby him and let him take advantage. We have had several adoption inquiries from people assuming Salt's issues stem from fear and that he needs love and kindness. He has plenty of confidence and receives plenty of love. He needs discipline. He can be a wonderful canine companion to the right adopter. Still no small children or elderly dogs for his household.
