found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.
At home, Carson is a lovable, huggable, well mannered, attentive little boy! Carson sits & waits politely for his meals, eating only once you’ve released him, and stares submissively into your eyes to earn his treats! He waits obediently before going thru or coming in an open door, and walks close behind you up and down stairs…and the walk is a work in progress!
Carson is very playful with his foster brother, but it takes him a couple of days to really become friendly with new dogs. In those couple of days, it is important to be vigilant in watching him and heading off any tension he starts to exhibit.
Along with this affection and manners comes a lot of fear and insecurity, which can unfortunately manifest itself as Carson hiding when company comes over, or, snarling and growling at unfamiliar people. It is important to have Carson on a leash under these circumstances, and correct and reassure him. This will happen even with people outside a window; however, it is easy to quiet Carson from ‘attacking’ through the window by simply verbally correcting him and making him follow you away from the window. Children especially seem to give this boy the heebeegeebees, so he cannot live in a home with children.
Carson has had consultations with behaviorists and trainers, who consistently agree that his undesirable behaviors stem from fear, not aggression, and that he can definitely be safely adopted to the right home. In fact, when they first met, Carson snarled and snapped at his current foster. The next day, Carson went home with that foster, and they are now inseparable!
Carson can be a dedicated and loyal companion, but it will take a vigilant, diligent, consistent, patient and firm person to successfully and happily adopt him. But, he is worth it!!!
