Special Home Requirements or medical:

Additional info: Blackie was part of a hoarding case recently He's shy but very sweet and cuddly and a little confused. He has subtle brown face marking like a Mini Pin. Blackie has some fear aggression and bit a staff member when he was being removed by crate. At this time we do not recommend him for a home with kids..He would do best in a home with experienced owners only as he is undersocialized and sensitive to touch from being in a hoarder home. Despite his recent hard life he is making good progress. When he first came to us, he wouldn't walk along on the leash and would hide behind people. Now he is walking nicely with much more confidence. He wouldn't allow anyone to pet him at first and would flinch but now he sits on people's laps and comes looking for attention. He is coming along nicely and is settling down more day by day. He needs some rehabilitation and help with housebreaking. He does have separation anxiety when left alone even for short times but we can help with extinguishing or improving this behavior. He seems fine with other dogs. He's just fearful of human contact.
