The point that we are trying to make is that you couldn't go pick him up yourself and had to arrange transport to get him TO you, when you wanted him, so if you decide you don't want him, where is the motivation going to be to take him back to the shelter? They certainly won't be able to pay for or provide transport.

You are taking this much too personally. I've repeated over and over that the questions posed have nothing to do with you personally or your dog personally. I merely tried to clarify things.

rgollar: thank you so much

onyx'girl: the growling was already known we expected that. you also have to understand that he was in a van for a very long time getting dropped off from person to person; today he was the complete opposite. and as soon as he got out of his crate he was totally fine except when he got a bit too nervous. NEVER bit though. my fiance is an expert in this behavior and he was able to correct it immediately. Cesar is now like my fiance's shadow; follows him everywhere. still warming up to me but getting better and better

lin: understood

rerun: actually i think i even stated that i was going to go if there were no other options. i was just merely trying to see if there was ALREADY a transport coming this way or if someone would volunteer. turns out there was and we all benefitted in the end so i don't see what the harm in asking was? and btw he didnt come TO me we still had to drive a considerable way it was just closer. so assuming i had a lack of motivation is entirely false.

Having personally done a lot of transports and overnights for dogs coming much much further than this one did, I've yet to have one growl at me and they get passed from person to person approx every hour, which means on a two day trip they pass through the hands of often 15 - 20 people.

I hope it all works out for you. Perhaps if you spend enough time in the rescue world in the coming years, you will understand why so many of us had problems with how this was done. I truely hope it all works out for the best, but many times it doesn't.

Titonsdad, Katieliz, and doreenf: THANK YOU!

Cesar is doing better and better every day. We let him roam the house while we went out and he didn't touch a single thing. So well behaved.

He has a little bit of seperation anxiety, when my fiance left for work he whined a little bit and went between the front door and glass sliding door trying to find him but didn't bark or anything of the sort; he's looking out the glass door now.

Yesterday my fiance and I took him on a long walk down the riverside trying to expose him to new people/places. He did so well pulled at first but walked well after being corrected.

Having a trainer come to the house possibly next week to get him started on some obedience training and to try to correct some of his dominant behaviors. Think it'll be good for him
