Description
Our family needs to re-home our 3 year old male boxer. We adopted him at 7mo. & he had no formal training nor was socialized with other dogs at this point. He is neutered. We would like to fully disclose the good & bad behaviors that have made this decision so hard for our family.
Good Traits: Our dog has graduated from professional dog training courses. He has been trained using an E-Collar.We believe he would be even more successful with board & train for socialization. He knows many tricks & multiple commands. Our dog is good with our two children, ages 6 and 8. He likes to snuggle, sleeps right at your feet if you'll let him, naps in sunshine, keeps us active, is a good listener to commands (in the absence of other dogs) and loves positive attention! He is house trained by way of bell on a doorhandle. He loves to play ball & run around you in circles to try to get you to chase him. He is a very active dog & often my husband will take him on a 5-6 mile bike ride in the morning.
Traits that lead us to rehoming: He has separation anxiety so he is kenneled when we are away & takes medication to help his anxiety. We purchased him a special high anxiety crate to help. We do not leave him for long periods of time because of this. The largest reason to rehome is he is NOT GOOD WITH OTHER DOGS or animals. We have tried to work on his dog aggression with a trainer & as a family since we adopted him at 7 months. We live in a suburb neighborhood with many dogs. He has bitten other dogs without being taunted, so that is why we need to re-home him. We can not take the chance that our kids or neighborhood kids would get in between our dog & another dog when aggressive behavior presents itself. We have him leashed & we are present when we are outdoors in our neighborhood. He has slipped out of open doors (with kids in & out) & that is how these previous bite accidents have happened.
