**Tony is a special needs dog and must be adopted by a behaviorally savvy adopter. His adopter must agree to sign a bite waiver and be committed to providing him with a safe and structured home. He has a low bite threshold and has snapped at and bitten people when in situations that make him anxious. Due to his unpredictable behavior, he should be the only pet and in a home with no children. **
This is Tony. He is 8 yrs old, recently neutered and was surrendered by his people on July 13th 2020. Somebody loved him I think, enough to surrender him. He arrived in Tucson on July 24th and is staying with H and I for some rehab.
He was never leash trained and may have to wear a harness, modified a bit so he can’t slip it, because he has a little cough that may indicate a tracheal problem. He is great with the other dogs so far.
With people he is a fighter and a biter if pushed. Probably mostly to lack of handling and the most basic of training. So a bit of a bully who needs to be pushed out of his comfort zone a little bit at a time, every day, all day long.
He is the fastest sitter I’ve ever seen if you have something he wants. It’s hilarious.
He wants to be with people, counts on people, will get on our lap, and always comes when called when we are outside.
Please email Allison for information about Tony.
