Running! On the leash jogs, off the leash sprinting, swimming, & ball chasing
Squirrels & being toweled off
His "baby." A plush red fox.
Anything with fish! He'll proudly scare off crows & squirrels then stand by the fridge waiting for his treat.
The dike on Lake Hartwell, 3 miles!
Shake, hug, & down
I began visiting the animal shelter in town after looking at petfinder and a friend telling me, a shelter doesn't usually have all their animals online. I went in and saw him and got to take him out for a walk. I came back 2 more days in a row to run around with him in their fenced in area. I was living in a nonpets apartment but had to have him. He would come when motioned, wasn't too crazy... but his card said he doesn't get along with other dogs. True enough, when bringing him back inside and all the dogs would start barking, he'd rear up and bark back. I ended up adopting him when I found out it was a kill shelter. I learned his isn't aggressive, just an alpha. He was a stray, then brought in, then adopted for a week with a family with a 5 year old Sibe. They didn't get along and was brought back.
After getting rid of his tapeworm, he gained nearly 10 pounds to a healthy weight, once in a loving environment, he is now perfectly fine with other dogs of any size.
His only remaining aggression is he's food possessive. This is fading though, I can now get my hands in the bowl and move it, and touch him with only growls and no snaps (he still won't let others do this though).
He's a small boy, roughly 48 pounds. He is blind in his right eye. It's a condition known as anisocoria (eyes differently dilated). His left eye is fine, but his right is almost always fully dilated. Roughly 2 years old when I adopted him (estimated by the vet by the condition of his teeth).
