Garth (courtesy post)
Garth is currently available. This is the information they have provided about him:
Garth was born April 14, 2018- he is a year and a half old and neutered, and approximately 130-140lbs. He is an extremely sweet and loving boy. He loves ear, belly and chin scratches. Garth knows sit, lay down and stay. Garth is completely crate trained and eats all his meals inside his crate. Garth walks well on a leash after he calms from the initial excitement of going on a walk. He is very protective of his people. Because if this, he has trouble interacting with other dogs and MUST go to a home with no other dogs, and no children. When children visit, he must be crated, as we believe he has trouble differentiating small children from other dogs. He has never had an incident with a child, but had growled from afar. We have not allowed him interaction with children because of this.
Garth has a history of resource guarding his people, and had bitten our bloodhound when we are eating. Garth has never shown aggression towards people. Garth has had multiple surgeries to correct bilateral entropion. Garth’s vet believes he will not need any further surgeries for his eyes. Aside from wiping goop from his eyes in the morning, he requires no special eye care.
Garth is a very special dog, and the owners are extremely bonded with him. They have exhausted their resources for his training, and have been told rehoming him to a home where he is the only pet and no small children may allow him to live a freer life- since he and his current dog siblings spend their days rotating in and out of crates to stay separated and safe. He has attacked the other large dog in his home three times, the latest incident causing significant damage and scarring. GARTH MUST BE THE ONLY DOG IN HIS HOME. The owners are trying to do what’s fair for Garth, and the other dogs in their home.
