Size - Small
History- Purchased as a puppy and left in the backyard- his name translated from Spanish to English meaning 'trash' or 'dirt'.. He was badly matted and just lived in a backyard by himself. A fellow rescuer pleaded with the owners to allow her to get him into rescue. They finally agreed. We have now had him for quite a while and he has made some progress but we feel he would greatly benefit if he had his own family to bond with and so he can get more one on one time.. He desperately wants to be loved- he wags his tail, and talks to us, and jumps around us when we get home. But he is still extremely fearful and must be caught to be petted.. He really needs a special person in his life. He is not leash trained, he doesn't come when called, he doesn't come to anyone for attention, he doesn't like being held, he is scared of being groomed, and basically he is almost feral; however, he is making progress -- baby steps, he is crate trained, house trained to use a dog door, comes when we yell treats and will take them from your hand as he stretches forward, acts excited when we get home, dances around us as though he wants attention, will occasionally allow us to pet him if there is another dog between us and he really does enjoy it, there is hope but he needs a very special person with time and patience and who understands that this boy is not your typical happy for attention dog who loves people.. We do have hope and feel with more one on one and more socialization he will learn to trust people but as of right now this is where we are at. This is a dog who needs a yard, a dog door, and no kids just due to his fearfulness. He has never bit anyone but he is terrified of being caught so will run and try to get away, but once you have him he relaxes a tiny bit but not much but in time with more and more holding he should continue to improve,
Temperament- Very sweet and playful, but extremely fearful..
Energy Level- Mid level-- loves playing with the other dogs..
Dogs/Cats- Great with other dogs- should go into a home with at least one other dog. Great with cats
Housetrained- Crate trained and using a dog door
Lambough is a wonderful little boy who desperately wants someone to love.. Someone who will be patient but at the same time be very encouraging to come to them for attention.. I am sure once he realizes his person is safe, loving, and fun to be with he will make a drastic change and become the super loving little dog I know he wants to be..
