Lucky just showed up at his current home when he was approximately 6-9 months old so he has been there almost 6 years. After about 2 years, he attacked another dog in the household so the owner has gone to great lengths to keep them separated. Unfortunately there was another incident recently between the two dogs, and the owner must rehome Lucky since he appears to be the instigator. Note that there is another large dog in the home, and Lucky has never had any issues with that one.
Lucky stays inside in his crate when his family is not at home. When they are home, he is in a room, separated from the other dogs by a tall baby gate. When he goes outside to go potty, he is on a chain.
Lucky is currently living in Goodview, VA. For additional information on Lucky, please contact Nicole at Carmella.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 540 309 5482.
