He does well with my 12 and 14 year old but has growled at my 9 year old when he walked into a dark room and startled him. He is very needy and does not like to be left alone. He's 100% Catahoula Leopard dog. He gets along with his mother but not his father. There was a smaller male dog in his previous home who he did get along with but he was the dominant dog. He needs to be rehomed Immediately.
