Special home requirements or medical: needs low traffic household, no kids and experienced and patient owner
Additional info: Tommy is a sweet boy who is doing great in his new foster home. He had separation anxiety at first but now we can leave him alone and he will be fine, not barking, and will just chill with the other dog in the home.We discovered that the crate stressed him out but when he is left alone outside the crate he does fine. Recently, Tommy had to be left with someone new as his foster mom was out of town. He reverted back to being scared, anxious and insecure and exhibited guarding behavior. He does take a while to accomodate to new surroundings probably because he's been dumped before. Tommy was surrendered to the shelter because his family had to move. He is super smart and learned down and sit very quickly. He is recovering from the traumatic experience of losing his family and he needs patience and TLC. He does need a patient, experienced owner in a quiet household as he can be a biter. He does have leash aggression towards strangers at first but he is super sweet when he trusts.
