Woody is a 7 year old Terrier mix who weighs 12 lbs. He was rescued from a shelter and we believe that he spent the first 5 years of his life outdoors. Right now he has an elderly owner but he has bitten his owner a couple of times so he needs to be rehomed. He is housetrained, walks well on the leash when he is with other dogs, but he may react negatively to passing dogs when he is alone. Woody takes his cue from other dogs and will not bark in situations where the other dog is calm. He can be feisty and can be aggressive when scared so he needs a patient, experienced hand to settle him down and provide structure and correction. He is fearful of dogs bigger than he is and men. He has a collapsed trachea. This doesn't require medical follow up but he does need to be walked with a harness and not a regular leash. Because he has bitten he would not be a good fit for a home with kids. Contact Nikki at email@example.com or 323/845-4624
