DOGID: 2982
Name: McKinley (Mac) Special Requirements (Adoption Pending)
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.
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. Once he becomes more settled Mac does great in the yard and now that he has learned his name its easier to get him in the house. Once you have his trust everything is easier with him.
Good With:
  • Other Dogs
  • Strangers
Dog Likes:
  • Retrieving
  • Car Rides
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 not too sure about cats but he just may be OK with them. He is good with small dogs in fact his best friend is a little 20 pounder.
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. Again now that he knows his name its easier to get him in the house and distract him from chasing the squirrels in the yard and in the trees.
Bitten? No
Bite Explanation:
Commands known:
  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Down
Tricks: We are working on here, the come command may be tainted. He knows both Drop it and Kennel up. He does retrieve to hand. He will give paw. He is improving daily in his foster home.
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 very containable though, we just are very diligent with him and its not as hard as some would think to contain him 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. He is allowed to be out all of the time we are home including overnight. http://s94.photobucket.com/user/hanknamy/slideshow/McKinley
