Default Dog from hording situation

I have been working with this boy at Safe Haven since before we got Tasha. He is from a hording situation and was one of the dogs trapped. They think he might have some Coyote in him. I am sure one of the other dogs does because she has the high yip yip song but I don't know about this boy. I do know he has been fearful of people and is terrified of a leash.

Today we got him on a leash he was able to calm down enough with me to take treats.

Meet Caesar... Unhappy at first:





to: I love this dog!

He is very very gentle... There is a whole group of them that were rescued that we have been working with but Caesar is my favorite...

Ghost is the one that does the coyote chatter.. We don't know for sure but there is probably some coyote in all of them. This is Ghost.



and Coyote



and Phoenix..



There are more but these are the only ones I have pictures of.

The look on his face, so closed and unhappy in the first pictures then his eyes kinda light up!

I hope very much you get to take him home soon!

I don't think it will be soon. He is still very feral. We have been working
with him for months to make the progress that we have he may never want to be an indoor dog. He is safe and warm and dry and fed and has the company of some of the other dogs that were found with him but he is going to be a long slow project. He only allows a few people to touch him and only one person can get the leash on him. As soon as it is on he lays flat and won't move, I'm the only one he has opened up with on leash and he allows me to touch and feed him treats. Some of the other dogs are much more friendly and hopefully can go to homes soon, if we can find someone who is willing to work with them, but Caesar and a few of the others are long term projects.

He's a handsome chap. If he really does have coyote in him, you might be in for a long uphill battle.

Instinct drives these animals and his GSD side may not be able to overcome his natural coyote tendancies.

I wish you and he a lot of luck.

Thanks. Even if there is no Coyote in him (I've been reading about how highly unlikely it is for dogs and coyotes to mate) he is still very much a work in progress. We just don't know how many generations of feral is in him. There was a horrible hording situation and he was one of many that wound up in traps and were sent to rescues all over the state.
