Well, funny how things can change...
What happened was Nick was absolutely wonderful when he first came out. I gave him treats, he seemed absolutely fine, I even got a little lick on my hand.
About 15-20minutes later while sitting at their table that was set up, I went to bend over to grab the toy I had brought for Nick. All of the sudden, I sensed something. I looked up and Nick was only about 4 inches away from my face. I looked at him thinking "Something is very wrong with his expression, it just changed", and with that he was snarling and showing all his teeth and acting like he was about to lunge at me.
I jumped back and Amanda yanked him towards her. Well,. needless to say, there is no way I could take him now. I was shocked at how fast this guy turned.
I don't know if it is because I was bending down towards his new toy I gave him, if it was beacuse I was looking at him and he felt challenged, I am not sure. However, it scared me enough that I said I was going to have to pass. That was so out of the blue and no warning nor reason.
So, after me sitting there and crying a bit because I felt so sad for him, and disappointed, they asked me if I wanted to see Sonny. Sonny had been with Nick at the abuser's home too. At first I said no and that I would leave a donation and just go back home, but after sitting there for a bit, I told them to go ahead and bring him out.
TOTALLY different dog. Full of energy, and kissy kissy on my face. After being there with him a while and walking him outside, I knew that him and I would end up being great pals.
He was not neutered, so while I was waiting for my hotel room to become available, I called the vet out by my home for an appointment to get him fixed (next Thursday morning 1st avail) rabies, and also to get him micro-chipped. I asked the women there how he was in regards to other animals, etc. So they brought out one of their docile ones, and he was absolutely fine wanting to play. This guy needs obedience classes FAST as well as a bath! P.U!
Weird how 2 dogs at the same abusive house have 2 totally different temperaments. So now, we are sitting in the hotel room. He had sniffed around for a few minutes and is now laying at my feet and is totally calm. I will be posting pics as he doesn't look PB to me but GS and Corgi? Amanda from the shelter said that his owner said he was a PB and from some top hard to get lines from Europe. She rolled her eyes when she told me that.
She agreed with what I thought. He looks like a Shepherd and Corgi mix.
I will take pics and post later, but for right now my boy is going to have dinner I brought for him and me some pizza that was delivered
