Lulu found himself at a local kill shelter and developed pretty severe barrier reactivity after spending too much time in the scary cells and due to this, was listed as unadoptable and his only way out alive was through a rescue. We pulled Lulu and discovered he was in need of intensive training to help him with his barrier reactivity and a fear of strangers. By the communities kindness, funds were raised to send Lulu to training where he learned to trust people and overcome his barrier aggression. He spent 10 weeks at a board and train facility and overcame his barrier reactivity with flying colors. Lulu needs a very special home with adopters who can make him feel safe and are willing to be patient with introductions to new people. While he's come a long way, he is still a bit shy and can be scared upon first meeting, but with proper intros, he does amazing and warms up quickly. Training will be provided to his adopters to help him transition to his new home. He will likely do best in a home where there aren't tons of visitors coming and going and where the environment is quiet and peaceful for him.
He is doing awesome in his foster home and he loves more than anything to snuggle up on the couch and give ear kisses! We cannot say enough about how lovable this boy is! He is crate trained, house trained, up to date on vaccinations, and neutered. He knows several obedience skills such as sit, down, shake and he's very smart so can learn pretty much anything you teach him! He does well with other dogs but will need a cat free home. He would also do best in a home without children or children over the age of 13.
