Clyde, who went by the name Clark but now goes by the name Mack, is a 3yr old pitty mix who is pretty much as perfect as they come!! He was rescued from ACCT Philly with not a moment to spare... he barely made it out alive. To think this amazing guy almost lost his life is just incomprehensible.
He is good with other dogs his size or bigger, loves all people including kids of all ages, but not so fond of cats or small dogs. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped!
Both of his foster families say he is an awesome dog who loves to sleep and is extremely cuddly and affectionate. Most of the time he's low energy unless he sees another dog or animal walk by the house that he sees through the door or windows. He likes to go for walks and is doing much better and pulling less, but he gets reallllllllly worked up if he sees another dog (not in an aggressive way, he just makes this crazy donkey like sound that they've never heard and seems like he wants to play but is just a little too excited.) He's great in cars, rarely barks but definitely has some separation anxiety and will whine at the window if someone leaves. Goes in his kennel on his own if you tell him "in", also knows "sit" and will lift his hand 50% of the time for "shake."
We had a trainer evaluate Clyde/Clark/Mack after he moved in with his second/current foster family. She says he has a very high prey drive that results in him being easily distracted. He needs socialization because he gets very excited when he sees new dogs and makes a lot of silly noises and gets focused on the dog. He will need an adopter or foster who is willing to work with socializing him, especially on leash walks so he can get used to stilmuli around the neighborhood without reacting. He would do best crated while his family is away because he watches windows for small exciting animals or dogs to pass by and gets overly excited. He would do best in a home that had the time and patience to work through these issues.
