This is Mako - He needs an owner who understands insecure dogs and dominance training. He is extremely handsome, protective and loving. I know that he will thrive with the right direction - something I am not able to provide for him, and with a new baby on the way I am hoping to find him the perfect owner better suited to him.
I adopted Mako in Florida - I walked through an overcrowded shelter and found Mako curled in the corner of his firstname.lastname@example.org made no noise and barely picked his head up to look at me standing there. I quite literally have never seen an animal so defeated or broken, I asked the woman to let me take him in the play yard just so he could get some sun- I know that Mako wanted to play but ultimately he was too insecure to chase anything - I sat on a bench and he jumped up right next to me and dropped the entire weight of his head on my shoulder - He was $20.
Mako needs to go to an experienced dog owner, and someone who wants a strong, protective guard/cuddle bug.
