Hi everyone! It is time for an update on me! I was having trouble dealing with strangers being around me. I recently moved to a new foster home in Edmonton because this is the best place for me to work on getting over my bad habits with strangers. I am a great little dog, but I have a few issues. Let's talk about my good qualities first: I love other dogs, I am leash, house and crate-trained, I get along well with cats, and I love my person. Truly, she can do anything with me. Now for my not-so-nice habits: I bite a lot. In fact, I bite everyone but my person (and I completely believe you can only have one person). I run up to people and pretend I am friendly and that I want to be petted; then I bite them! I find it hilarious. You two-leggers fall for it every time! I am a confident, happy guy who actually enjoys biting you people-types. My foster mom says this is an unadoptable habit, and one that is very tricky to correct. She says fear can be overcome, aggression can be managed, but a bad sense of humour you're stuck with.

I'm a Sanctuary AnimalWhat's a sanctuary animal? Sanctuary animals are permanent wards of SCARS due to medical conditions or behavioral issues and we are not likely to ever find an adoptive family. SCARS is committed to giving these animals a home and the love, care and attention they deserve! We house them at our two main intake facilities. We look to businesses to sponsor Sanctuary Animals to help us offset the cost of housing them. Click here learn more about our Sanctuary Animals
Please note: If other cats/dogs in your home are not spayed/neutered, we may deny your application. SCARS exists due to lack of spaying/neutering and it is our goal to end this cycle. If there is a documented medical reason for your animal to not be spayed/neutered, we will work with you.
What does 'Manageable' mean? This animal can be integrated into a home however will need SPECIFIC supports in place for this to be successful.
