Age: 2 Years
Weight: 70 lbs (should lose 10lbs)
This dog has been spayed/neutered, is up to date on shots, on heartworm preventative and is microchipped.
B-Rad needs a home that is also committed to continuing to work on counter-conditioning with his food guarding, and will ensure total respect of his space when he is eating. Importantly, his new people also need to be observant of his body language and pro-active to manage situations with food and small or confined spaces with other dogs. B-Rad is currently on Prozac to reduce his general anxiety. This should be continued for at least the first three months after adoption, but may be able to be discontinued as he settles into his new home and routine. He has a tendency to hyper-bond with one person, so interactions with several folks on a regular basis will be good for him. Last but not least, his new people should continue to reinforce his basic commands and structure to continue to build his confidence and give him a sense of security and what is to be expected next.
B-Rad is a good dog - he is loving, eager to please, relatively low maintenance - he will make a fabulous companion for the right home. If you think you have the home that B-Rad is looking for, fill out a application today!
**Additional info you should know - For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label. Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption. There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.
