Ross had minimal interest in Food, flinching and cautious when approached by assess-a-hand. He engaged in play with Toy and relinquished easily to assessor. Ross took Rawhide away, growled and became stiff. Due to potential for possessiveness with Rawhide, the Behavior Team feels Ross would do best in an Experienced home with No Young Children, any older children should have an in-depth interaction before adoption. Ross may benefit from obedience classes to learn leash manners as well as crate training. He may also benefit from durable Toys while his family is away from the home, such as stuffed Kongs and Nylabones. Ross may do best as the only resident dog in the home. Look: 1.
