Chucho – A752893
Chucho needs a special home! He is super smart and needs a home that is willing to keep this guy intrigued and stimulated.
AT THIS TIME, THIS DOG IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR GENERAL ADOPTION, WE ARE TRYING TO PLACE HIM WITH A RESCUE ORGANIZATION TO WORK ON TRAINING/REHABILITATION BEFORE PLACING HIM IN A HOME.
However… we recognize that YOU might be just what this dog needs. We may consider adoption if you and our behavior counselors feel you are a great match! We would be looking for a home that is:
– Active! Not looking for a marathon runner or anything crazy.. just someone ready to provide this youngster with an outlet for his energy. A morning jogger? Weekend hiker? Evening stroller? You’re good! But be aware that he feels most secure when there are no strangers around, so crowded areas or busy neighborhoods are not a good mix for this dog.
– Understanding about how to safely manage protective behaviors. He does not like to have strangers approach him “handler”/owner. This can be on leash or within the home/yard. Our counselors will discuss this with you further.
– A take-no-nonsense leader! Chucho needs structure to help him succeed. We’re talking crate-training, sitting/waiting at doorways, maintaining a strict heel when on a walk, lots of fun training!
– Chucho has displayed food and toy guarding at the shelter and in his previous home. This behavior is one that can be modified, but will take time and work to accomplish.
If you think you’re just what Chucho needs, email us at email@example.com to speak with an adoption counselor.
