Wi, 9th month male

I've been fostering a now 9 month old male who is highly human leash reactive/aggressive and dog-reactive (frustrated greeter). He's started on meds and muzzle training, and is crate trained with basic obedience and early behavior modification training.

I can no longer keep him and his prospects are dim unless I can find a skilled and willing person ready to take on this type of challenge.

No children in the home. High school students at your discretion. It's unclear how he will be with cats or other dogs. He does fine with other dogs off leash.

Please share this information with your networks. I will drive him wherever he needs to go if the correct person is located.

I sent Jan a message to pass on to a rescue in MN. Randy would be an excellent choice if there is a spot open.

He is the founder of the rescue with a long resume.

Surrender appointment made. Will see if I go through with it. Still talking to folks and looking for an experienced home/rescue b/c that would be ideal for him. I don't think he's beyond help and someone who is willing to work with him would get a good dog. That's just not me at this time.

I don't recall if this has been mentioned before but do you know who bred him? Any chance for him to be returned to the breeder?
I'm so sorry you have been put in this position, just try to stay focused on the fact that none of this is on you. You have done more then many would have to try and save this dog, and that's a good thing.

The breeder has not returned any attempts at contact. I didn't know this until recently, but the student found him on Craigslist. I think that explains a lot about why we can't contact her now.

Thank you for your unwavering support and kindness, Sabis mom.

Contact info for several GSD rescues. Not sure of the locations in relation to you and I don't know if they are reputable or not but I thought it was worth a shot. I wish I could take him for you, I wish I knew someone near you who could help.

If your appt stems from the help through Jax08, I really hope it works out. I think that he will have as good a chance finding the right home and match through the avenue of a rescue and or from someone well experienced.

Trying to vet an appropriate home by yourself could have it's own challenges and learning curve .

You did and are doing your best.

I haven't heard back from anyone connected to a rescue. He will go to a local shelter.
