Onyx does not exhibit any resource guarding with food, bones/treats, or toys towards humans, but she does resource guard with other animals. Easy solution: She enjoys her food and treats in her crate where she is not bothered! Her current foster does have three cats, and Onyx is definitely curious with them and sometimes chases, but she responds well to correction. She has not been around children with us yet, but she's generally friendly with strangers - a little hand shy with fast movements at first - so maybe kids 10+, or those old enough to understand to be patient with her.
Are you interested in learning more about Onyx? She needs a new foster or better yet, and a new adoptive home to call her own! Please fill out an adoption application for Onyx on our website at forgottendogs.org/adopt/application - Thanks!
