Jabba urgently needs a foster home
Why is fostering needed?
He is dog aggressive and has other behavioral problems that are difficult to manage with 2 other dogs in the house. His aggression toward one of our dogs continues to get worse and I feel he would do better in an only dog household.
How long is fostering needed for?
Until a forever home for pet is found
Jabba is a sweet and sensitive guy, with little confidence. He’s 75 pounds, but loves to cuddle and thinks he’s a lap dog. He has always been a bit shy and fearful since I adopted him at 8 weeks. His anxiety and fear began to get worse despite the exposure training I was doing from an early age, so I hired a behaviorist to help. Unfortunately, the behaviorist was not very helpful, and one of Jabba’s issues is dog aggression, and we have 2 other dogs. One of our dogs is too rambunctious for Jabba and he tends to pick on her and has started some fights with her over the last 3 months. Jabba would do best in an only pet household, so he could get the attention and behavior training he needs. He has also struggled with resource guarding, so his potential foster parent and future owner would need to work on this as well. Jabba is currently on meds to help with his anxiety and has been on them for awhile now. He’s a smart boy and the best boy when not under all this stress. I know, with the right owner (and pet-free household), Jabba could live a much happier, healthy life. He is kennel trained, potty trained, knows a lot of tricks, does well for nail trims, ear cleanings, and bath time.
