Leo’s adoption and foster situation has fallen through again!
At this time Leo needs to be an only pet. He has shown jealousy and snapping issues with other dogs. Since he was ok the first few days with us around other dogs, we think that with a very patient person willing to work with a trainer (we can recommend) and spend a lot of time with him, he could be ok with other dogs again in the future, but he needs to feel like he is stable and actually has a home before he gets to this level of training! He has shown aggression to other dogs so please be aware of this when applying!!!
This poor guy has been abandoned too many times, so because of this we will be VERY picky about where he goes! Husky or similar breed experience required. He takes a while to adjust to new humans – please do not apply for this guy if you are not serious and/or don’t understand the undertaking that his adjustment may be. He becomes very friendly and loving to people once he is familiar with them.
Leo was scheduled for euthanasia unfortunately, so we decided to pull him! He lived exclusively in a backyard for 2 months before going to the shelter, where he spent the last month. His history before that is unknown as he was a stray that his finders kept. Due to his unstable last few months, he is nowhere near realizing his potential of being an awesome canine companion.
Potty-trained. Has not shown food-aggression to humans and is very treat motivated. Definitely has some resource guarding issues with toys and we would recommend no toys or similar objects like high value bones be given to him until trust is established (and maybe not even then depending how he does).
He comes right up to you when called and is very eager and happy and excited to be out and about and part of it! He will lick your hand and does appear to want affection, we are just going slow at the moment. He has shown some protective tendencies when he gets attached and doesn’t know boundaries – he needs a breed and behavioral-experienced home willing to work with him!
