We have gotten to know Randy a little further and while he is extremely friendly, he also has some issues that will need to be addressed. Randy has shown signs of what may be PTSD, and on occasion he has changed his attention seeking tail wagging demeanor into what appears to be unprovoked aggression. His foster mom has witnessed this a few times in the past few weeks and we are still evaluating him to attempt to determine triggers, causes, and try to find a solution. This aggression changes back into the loving attention seeking dog within seconds. Randy has had a tough life and we are doing our best to help him be a happy well rounded dog. He will need an adopter who has experience with dogs and who is willing to give him the structure and training that he needs, as well as consulting with a trainer or behaviorist. Randy has extreme potential to be the happy dog that he is 99% of the time 100% of the time!

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.
