Bob is finally testing heartworm negative as of May of 2015. Yay!!!!
Bob is VERY smart and responds well to training. He would thrive with someone who was willing to spend time one on one teaching Bob tricks and proper behavior. Bob's personality with all dogs and the people that he has come to love is fun and loving. He loves to play and be held. Bob's personality with people that he doesn't know is wary and unpredictable. His new family will have to be patient and introduce Bob to strangers slowly.
We are looking for a family for Bob without small children. Because of the unpredictable nature of smaller kids and their friends. He needs a calm environment. Bob can take some time to warm up to men, so the new man in his life needs to be patient and calm. He can be won over with treats. We are hoping for his new family to have a dog. Bob needs another dog to let him know that he is safe and loved. Bob's training needs to include ONLY positive reinforcement. He has come a long way in trusting people and it would be very easy to set him back. Bob needs to be in a home with a yard, not an apartment. He enjoys exploring the back yard and running fast.
Bob was never house trained as a young pup, lived in a hoarding situation, and now lives with several other male dogs in his foster home. Bob does mark and this behavior will need to be addressed. Bob will always need to be on Heartgard monthly.
