This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only. Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. RESCUE ONLY: Hoss will be 2 in March (5th) and is a fun loving type of dog! He loves playing ball & can be a bit of a ball hog! He enjoys playing with toys, loves Canine Carry Out dog treats, going on car rides, snuggling with his Momma, and belly rubs any chance he can get! He would rather die than potty in his own house, so please walk him/let him outside often. Very seldom he may have an accident, but that would be due to not being taken out. Hoss requires someone in good shape to walk him when on a leash, as he's pretty strong & seems to think he's walking you! A harness helps control him a bit better. He's good with most other dogs, although he's not fond of small breeds; which is funny because he was raised with a male Chihuahua who can growl & Hoss is on his back in the submissive pose! But his 'brother', the Chihuahua he was raised with, is the only small dog thus far, who he'll react that way with! He seems to do best with female dogs, which I suppose is natural, but his best buds have mostly been female dogs of all sizes who also love to run and play as much as he does. He's good with children, but I would not trust him around smaller children, as he's snapped a warning bark once at a couple of the owners grandchildren. He does fine with older children, say 8 yrs and up. He does NOT do well in stressful situations where the humans are doing a lot of arguing & yelling!!! This needs to be known and said, because he IS a bite risk at anyone who may yell or scream at his owner! (He's very protective of those who love and baby him, and his owner gave him LOTS of attention‰'Ű|.talking, physical affect and singing to him - he LOVES to be sung to!) It is believed that part of why he is not comfortable around very young children is due to their frequent yelling and/or crying and general unpredictable beds.) This dog is an excellent companion dog, as he really requires a lot of time and attention, as his owner was Disabled and home most of the time. He does experience separation anxiety and if left alone too long, he can potentially chew a pillow or couch cushion, if he's not crated. Hoss currently doesn't have a crate but he is familiar with them and does okay for a few short hours at a time. Hoss is also used to dog sweaters, so even tho they aren't his favorite thing, he does understand wearing one out in the cold. I'm really hoping that a Rescue Group will see and love Hoss as much as his owner, and take him in, due to his issue with humans telling/arguing. He deserves a loving home with people who understand his quirk and will take care of him as well and loyally as Hoss will they.
