Zeze is a Rottweiler/American Pit Bull Terrier DOB: 03/13/20 Color: Seal- Blackish but Brown in sunshine Neutered UTD on shots International Microchip Olympia, WA Fee: $300 but will lower that by $25 per time you visit him and work with him to get him to feel safe with you. I'm not looking for money. I am looking for someone to build a relationship where he feels safe with them and only if he can feel safe with you. Our pup is just just over a year and although he was doing very well in his training by six months, that went off track very quickly. We have spent the last six months and literally all of my money and more trying to get back on track (and to replace things for him he breaks) but too many of the factors aren't controllable nor his fault. To us he is a big soft baby, gentle, sweet and loves to cuddle but... He became fear-aggressive towards people outside our home due to lack of socialization combined with his experience with some of our neighbors and homeless folks causing him to become fearful of pretty much everything outside of our home and even while inside of it (picture frames falling, noises, people taunting him through the window.) He is also so very protective of us. We live with one very fluffy white kitty and he does well with the few dogs he has been around except one neighbor dog who has barked at him like he wants him to fight him since he was little and now Zeze has started barking back. He is very smart, learns quickly and has the drive to please. I feel, even though we want to keep him and love him, HE NEEDS someone who will be able to either train him or send him away to be trained. If not I fear he will end up hurting someone. He has separation anxiety. We never left him alone in his year of life because we don't leave our house much and we take him with us and one of us would have to stay in the car with him. The few short times neither of those could happen he would settle down and chill but then yelp, cry, jump and pull on my clothing when we returned. More recently he has pulled apart his crate and ate everything my daughter owns- clothes, shoes, school supplies, art supplies, anything he could find in her room- while we visited my grandma for Mothers' Day. Since then he has destroyed another crate. This rehoming has to happen and I have put it off as long as I could hoping my daughter would follow through with all the training and everything we sacrificed would be worth it but she doesn't and she may hate me for doing this but I will let her be angry because I am doing what is right for Zeze. I think she will feel better once he is in a much more fitting home and his anxiety is reduced. Please only reply if you have a nice sized disposable income because I didn't and what I had is gone and we are where we are now because of that. He will need a very big strong crate if you plan to crate him. I don't want him to live outside. He deserves kind owners and stern owners would not help him with his issues. Please, no rude comments. This is extremely difficult and stressful but this is long overdue. Short of sending him to be boarded by a trainer (which I can't afford) there is nothing that would be able to change this and I have no faith in my daughter to follow through if I had money to go another round. I love him, too, and he deserves a life without all these issues and I believe he can learn to trust the outside world with the right people to show him it is okay and a safe environment.
