About Kyle

Adoption Fee: $350
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Male

Sooooo....I'm not perfect. Kyle was born November 27, 2014 (AKC papers included in his medical record) and weighs about 62 lbs. This boy is strikingly gorgeous! He is house trained, good on leash, great in a car, and adores children. Kyle also loves other dogs and enjoys hanging and playing with them. Kyle will also hang with you while you do your outside chores. He is fine about being crated, has a good appetite and enjoys marrow bones. He is used to being walked twice daily and should be on leash at anytime he is, potentially, going to come across any men. The owners circled that he has bitten someone, but didn't elaborate and we've left a message to get more info so we can find a home that won't let that happen again. Other than this last bit of news he seems like the perfect dog! He's only been here a day as I write this we've observed that he isn't outright aggressive, but fearful aggressive which can be worse because it is unpredictable behavior unless you know the dog well and protect it from any situations he could get in trouble. So, what do we do with a new dog that has a fear of men? Don't be silly, we put him directly in the house with my husband. After all, it's not the first time he's been a 'test man'. I told hubby to just go about his business and ignore his barking and somewhat 'dancing' behavior and they are doing fine. He's actually doing the same thing to me, but we haven't spent any one on one time together yet and this is A LOT to take in for some dogs just coming out of a 'normal' home. So, we will be learning as we go, but for now I feel we need a new home without a lot of traffic and likely a fenced yard or a remote location would be best so no one is walking up to him quickly. He's not going to be a dog that you can take to the family picnic or soccer games as he will be more comfortable, and safer, left at home. With all this being said he is only 3 years old and with a good trainer and time and effort on your part along with what I've witnessed so far I'm leaning in the direction that he could be turned around at least to some point. Here we are looking for the one special human again. Oh, and he's professionally groomed, so that must go pretty well. Update: There was one bite just recently when a dog was aggressively barking at Kyle from across the street and Kyle and his mom were distracted and a female runner went by, startled him when already on alert, and he grabbed her arm and there were two red marks/perhaps punctures. The young lady was gracious and did not make a fuss. This woman had him since he was 10 months old and prior to her his life consisted of being let out on a line and when inside restricted to the laundry room, why wouldn't he have issues. Apparently they were used to smaller dogs in the past, but thought a larger one would be fun to try until she (first owner) had to have back surgery. Oddly enough, some men he ADORES! The woman has a mature friend that was accepted first thing and LOVED by Kyle. A trainer was never consulted. I truly feel there is hope.
