"Clyde" is a very loveable cuddle-buddy, well housebroken, and a quick learner. Vet said he's about 2 years old. He's healthy and weighs about 15 pounds.Though small, he is not a yipper, his bark is more the "ruff-ruff" of a larger dog. He plays well with my other dog and got along with the other dogs at the shelter. He is crate trained which is a great boon, he feels safe in his crate and will often rest or sleep there. He's up to date with immunizations and has a chip. He has had some leash training and loves to go for walks but will need some more training and patience as he loves to stop and sniff everything.
Clyde has only two issues: He was apparently abused by a male and is timid around some men, but has never been aggressive or bitten anyone. He just barks and cowers. Usually warms up to people after a day or two. Also, Clyde likes to chew. He needs plenty of safe chewy toys and some preventive measures to avoid him damaging your possessions. He has never chewed the furniture, but went through a few decorative pillows before I baby-proofed the house. He seems to be getting much better about the chewing as he gets older, this is somewhat of a puppy thing, I'm told.
If I didn't have a farm and so many other animals to deal with, as well as frequent guests, I would keep him. But I have frequent visitors to the house and it is stressful for Clyde as well as for the visitors - when there are so many new people coming and going, he barks a lot. The ideal home for him will probably be with a single woman who wants a loveable and loyal companion and walking buddy. He's adorable and very trainable; I just don't have the time to spend with him that he needs. He would be fine with another dog too; not so sure about cats, he barks and wants to chase them but might be okay with a calm cat.
I'm asking $100 rehoming fee, just to make sure he goes to a good home. This could be paid in installments if necessary. The shelter would charge $250. He comes with a harness and leash, food, food bowl and crate, chewy toys, and a book on how to deal with "Do-Over Dogs."
Please contact me by email, tell me about your circumstances and why you want a dog, and PLEASE leave me a contact number where I can call or text you. I will not respond to messages that ask questions (like "do you still have him?" "Is he neutered?") but do not include a contact number.
Thanks -
