Can you spread the word about Tony to help find him a special home? Tony was rescued from New Mexico and was not well socialized. He is about 35 pounds and roughly 2 years old.
When he is in a quiet environment, he is very calm and loving. When he is nervous or uncomfortable, his defense mechanism is to bite. He has been fostered with other dogs and gets along with them, but will nip dogs if overwhelmed.
He needs someone who is patient and willing to work with him. He is open to training, but will need a lot of work. When he is scared, he puts on the breaks, but this has improved with high-value treats.
He is potty trained, has lived with cats, and loves to cuddle. He is a sweet dog, but will need the right person to take it slow.
Required to adopt Tony:
- No homes with children
- Must have experience with biting dogs (preference will be given to certified trainer)
- Must be familiar with or willing to muzzle train
