DOGID: 2982
Name: McKinley(Mac) Special Requirements
Location: Des Plaines, IL
Age: 2
Color: Brown
Sex: male
Weight: 70
Neutered? yes
Vaccines:
  • Rabies
  • DHLPP
  • Kennel Cough
  • Heartworm Preventative
Heartworm Negative? Yes
Health Conditions: His muzzle has no hair due to trying to get out of the ACO trap. It is growing in slowly. Email me for more pictures
Housetrained? yes
Dog surrendered to Rescue because: Abandoned/stray
Other Reason: McKinley is listed as special requirements: REQUIRED 6' PRIVACY FENCE. McKinley is a runner, if let off leash outside a fenced area he will just go and he is almost impossible to catch. He does not know the come command, we believe that may be tainted anyway so we instead are working on here. He must be watched in the yard at first because he will test the fence for weakness.
Good With:
  • Other Dogs
  • Strangers
Dog Likes:
  • Retrieving
Working Ability:
Working Comments: Not too sure how Mac is around children but older children should be fine, may knock over toddlers due to his exuberance. I am doubtful about cats due to very high prey drive.
Behavioral Problems:
  • Other
Other Behavioral Problems: He likes to chase squirrels in the yard so he must be watched carefully while outside. He also barks when kenneled but settles down nicely. He pulls on a leash so he would need work on that. At times its difficult to get him to come in but a favored squeaky toy works like a charm as does a favorite bone.
Bitten? No
Bite Explanation:
Commands known:
  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Down
Tricks: We are working on here, the come command may be tainted. Drop it. Kennel up. He does retrieve to hand
Other Info: Mac tests fences, once he has decided that he is happy in his yard this behavior ends but if ever let out he will RUN. He is a very nice, sweet young CBR. He gets along with my 2 female CBR's and my male CBR with no issues whatsoever. He can be a bit much for an older dog but what young dog isn't. Very affectionate, he cuddles with me at night.
