I am not big with the two week shut down, but I would do it in this situation. How long was he in the shelter for? Why was he at the shelter? It's really not reasonable to expect a dog from the shelter not to be stressed out if overwhelmed. They don't know or understand what us going on and everything is new. So many dogs are returned within a day of so for various reasons. As soon as I signed the papers to adopt my male we walked out and he attacked another dog. Boy was I mortified. Other then that he had a wonderful temperament so I stuck it out. Later I found out he was given up because hd was nipping at the kids in the house, which I never seen, but not something they disclosed originally either. He has turned out go be a wonderful dog.
