Silas was a puppy when i got him and for most of his dog life he has been a good dog. However, in the last year he has developed some anxiety issues and does not like be left at home alone. When he is left alone during a storm or wind blowing He has torn up our hallway rug down to the bare floor. If it wasnt a rental property I probaly wouldnt care as much. This was my first dog and I LOVE HIM so very much but I unable to care for him in this state. He needs a companion who can be with him most of the time.
