DOGID: 17104
Name: Biggie
Location: Finksburg , MD
Age: 4.5
Color: Light Brown
Sex: male
Weight: 75
Neutered? yes
Vaccines: rabies, DHLPP
Heartworm Negative? unknown
Health Conditions: None
Housetrained? yes
Dog surrendered to Rescue because: Other
Other Reason: I have an autistic son who has behavioral issues; he is physically aggressive towards me. Biggie has witnessed my son hit me so he jumps on my son, who is 5’2 and 180 lbs, and has nipped his arm (never breaks the skin just enough to get my son’s attention). It is an ongoing situation that we have tried to address, but have been unsuccessful due to the nature of my son’s special needs.
Good With: other dogs, strangers
Dog Likes: water, retrieving, car rides;
Working Ability: unknown
Working Comments:
Behavioral Problems: other problems
Other Behavioral Problems: Pees at the vet. Counter surfs if given the opportunity. Will chase bunnies and squirrels. Separation anxiety in unfamiliar places (if crated in a new location he will bark and cry). He does not have any “non typical” dog issues. He nips and jumps on my autistic son when my son is hitting me. He will jump on new people initially out of excitment.
Bitten? No
Bite Explanation:
Commands known: Sit, Stay, Down, Come, Bathroom
Tricks: He understands heel, but will not always comply.
Other Info: At minimum he needs at least 10-15 minutes of fetch twice a day. Likes socks a bit too much. Prefers black Kongs to chew; he must have them. Keep him confined in a car because he likes to be busy. If you can’t do that, you need to exhaust him with fetch before you take him anywhere. He doesn’t swim as well as I would like him to because he doesn’t get the opportunity. He jumped into a deep Lake after some geese recently and was able to get himself out OK so that’s not a problem. He’d be fine with practice and doesn’t hesitate to jump off a pier into the water. He is a Velcro dog. He doesn’t sit on your lap, but he does need to be near you as much as possible, but can handle being crated when necessary. Like most dogs, if he is distraught or bored he will chew. He will sit at your feet and will follow you from room to room just to be near you. It is excruciating to put him up for adoption.
