Pet’s Name: Cutie
I got Cutie back in July. His previous owner only had him for 6 or so months, and because the people she got him from did not speak the same language as her, his history is very unknown.
The girl I got him from told me he has lived successfully with small, medium, and big dogs, a well a children and chickens. She told me he had never shown any aggressive behaviors, so I went ahead and adopted him.
When I got Cutie, I owned a house with a large fully fenced backyard. Soon after he moved in with me, I got a divorce and lost my home. For a few weeks Cutie and I had to live in a hotel, and then we found temporary housing at a place with a yard. There is where Cutie and I spent most our time. I had to move out of that home, and the only place I had left to live was at my sisters house.
My sister has just had a newborn baby, and also has a medium sized male dog (age 2). Unfortunately, Cutie and the other dog that do not get along at all. We have tried to introduce them to each other multiple times and it's been unsuccessful. Because the other dog is a mostly an outdoor dog, Cutie has now been confined to a small space with me, and only gets exercise from walks and when he goes out to go potty. I am a single person who works full time. I am heartbroken to be getting rid of him, but his living arrangement has been very stressful on him, and has caused him to become anxious and reactive.
Positive things about Cutie.
-He gets along great with LARGE female dogs.
-He's extremely smart
-He knows sit, stay, heel, and gentle (when feeding him a snack.)
-He is fully potty and crate trained.
-He only barks when he's nervous.
-He is not a humper at all like other male dogs.
-He plays fetch and loves to jog and run.
-He's fully vaccinated and fixed.
-I paid for him to have a month lo g puppy training/boot camp which cost about 3k.
-Cutie has reactive tendencies. I've only seen them come out when he's been around or heard the dog that we currently live with. But he has bit the dog we live with before, so there is a history of biting.
-He is large and does not know his own strength sometimes.
-He has hair loss, and so his hair is not very soft.
-His history is unknown, so there is still a question mark about him.
-He has had a history of issues with male dogs, so a home with another male dog would likely not be a good fit.
-He is very dominate (pro and con.)
I am heartbroken to be giving him up as I love him with all my heart. But he needs to be in a home where he is either the only dog, or a dog he can get along with well.
Though Cutie has lived with children in the past (both my sisters kids and the previous owner), this dog would be better for a dominant person without children in the home and needs to have space to run.
Date of Birth: November 1, 2022
Color/Markings: Blue, Grey, Black, Gold
Re-Home Fee: $300
Reason for re-homing:
He and I both lost our home and we now live in my sisters basement. She already has a dog, and Cutie does not get along with her dog. So we have to constantly keep the dog separated.
When I got Cutie I was married and had a yard, but now it's just me and we don't really have a home to call our own.
