Biloxi was surrendered to the shelter in Dec due to growling at guests in the home. The original owners claimed they hired a trainer and it “didn’t work”. He was kept indoors and is housebroken.
Another family adopted him from the shelter on Dec. 30th and returned Jan 2nd for growling at strangers, but said he was very good with the children in the home.
We think he will be a great dog but will need an experienced family that will follow firm guidelines and give Biloxi the boundaries that he needs. He should not be allowed on furniture and should not sleep in your bed. We think he may have developed some separation anxiety from his multiple shelter drop offs and that will be exacerbated if you baby him, but he will grow more confident with crate training. He is good with other dogs and likes to play!
