A LOT OF DOG IN A SMALL PACKAGE:   3 years old / 18 lbs.

I was adopted in December of 2018 & became bossy with my people. They loved me & tried some training, but the follow through was hard for them so I was returned due to using my teeth. So, I’m looking for a dog savvy family that will provide strong leadership.

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I’ve met some dogs at MM’s & seemed alright with the smaller dogs, but I avoided the larger ones. I didn’t play with them, but also didn’t show any aggression, so I may do well with another smaller dog, let’s meet! I liked the little dog I met in a temp. foster home & let him be the boss. I’m very possessive of my food & treats though, so those should be given separately. I’m not sure if I would want to share toys with other dogs, so use caution until it’s clear whether I'll share them or not / Cats unknown / No kids due to prior bites & possessiveness.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: I’m described as friendly, loving & fun-loving with a mind of my own. I’m affectionate with my people, though that can sometimes be on my terms as can be typical of my breed, & I have bitten over being petted when I had had enough, holding my collar, & over things that fall to the ground as I see them as mine! I’m also extremely food aggressive, so please let me eat alone. I bark for attention & am a good alert dog when I see things outside. Consistent training & leadership can help tremendously in these areas. Please do not pick me up or hold me too often as this brings out my Alpha behaviors. / My energy level: 5-7, sometimes a little higher so regular exercise is very good for me.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: I’m in the Mostly Mutts University training program. I’ve mastered ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘down’, ‘leave it’, ‘drop it’ & meeting strangers without jumping. I also walk nicely on my leash & use proper door etiquette. I ride well in the back seat of the car too. In MMU, I’ve shown a big improvement in allowing my trainer to be near my food bowl while I eat, & I share toys with her because I trust that she will give them back. Like my trainer, I need a strong leader who I can trust around my food & toys. / I’m crate trained at MM’s / I’m doing very well with my potty manners on the shelter schedule.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I love playing with toys, though watch for my regrip so I don’t accidentally get your hand with my enthusiastic play. Sturdy toys may be best as I like to perform surgery on my toys – he he. I love playing fetch too. I also love attention & being with my people / I dislike too much affection when I don’t want it & it will take me some time to trust you.

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & neutered. I have a sometimes-sensitive digestive system, so MM’s recommends good quality dog food & dog treats only - no human or cat food.

If you’re a great dog person, ready for training & leadership with their 4-legged friend, come meet me! My adoption fee is $299.00, & I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
