Other Info: Reggie is a really good boy, in general. He is quiet and clean. He is not interested in running away when off-leash. The struggle is keeping him from being underfoot both when off leash or on leash. He comes when he's called, can heel and sit and lie down on a dime. He is a typical chessie and doesn't like to be forced into doing anything- he can use all his muscle against you.., but he will do anything if he thinks it's his idea- like go to back into his kennel for a treat... and sit to wait for it (instead of trying to push him in and force the door closed while he is resisting with all his might). This dog is going to put on some weight soon and no one will win if they think they can wrestle with him. Reggie is not aggressive- but he is bossy around food and toys, and pushes his weight around. If he is placed with another dog, it would have to be one who is uninterested in toys and doesn't care if he eats first, otherwise there will be issues from the start. Reggie doesn't like to share. He hogs all the toys, he will try to bulldoze the others to eat first, he has to be the closest to me all the time. He is not necessarily trying to get into a fight, he's just oblivious that he's in someone else's space. He has to wait his turn to get his food (we do it in the same order every day, and he is 4th of 5). He can't stand that. He seems a little too interested in cats so we are looking for a home for him without cats. He seems to have some separation anxiety... he hates being left. But he doesn't chew up his doggie bed or try to escape, so we think once he gets used to a routine this should ease up. We think an experienced dog owner (especially with Chessie experience) will be this dog's best chance at finding a placement that sticks. Anyone who knows the breed will think he's a great find- he really is gorgeous and well-behaved- but he'll need to be kept in check as well.
