Rex doesn't let his past keep him from being a very outgoing dog. He can occasionally be timid if scared but is generally a very friendly and warm dog. Rex has a dominant personality and is really quite amusing in his self-confidence. Although you wouldn't expect such a severely neglected dog to have bounds of energy Rex is determined to prove that wrong with his bouncy antics on a daily basis. Although he can be a whirlwind at first Rex does have some basic manners in regards to sitting on command and being decent on a leash.
Rex isn't totally sure he wants to get along with the other dogs and has a dominant personality. He has found middle ground with the other dominant males to coexist in what can only be described as a canine fraternity - seriously they are a hoot! Rex has not been tested with cats or dogs below 45 lbs.
Rex did test positive for heartworm and has been started on the "slow kill" method of treatment with support of holistic supplements through Young Living Essential Oils. His new home will need to be dedicated to continuing his treatment in one form or another.
Rex is searching for an active home that will give him the boundaries he needs to succeed while also providing plenty of TLC to help him recover physically. If you have space in your heart and home please email Tierhavenrescue@gmail.com for an adoption application
