Chandler D6660

Chandler and Joey were rescued from a shelter. Both were sad and timid at the shelter. They have been neglected, unhealthy and have severe flea dermatitis. Once out of the shelter, he was very happy, friendly and sweet. Good with other dogs. He needs healthy food, basic home training and TLC. Chandler and Joey are already separated into two different foster homes.

Update from Foster Home: Chandler truly is a lovely and sweet boy. He’s not a big fan of loud noises or fast motions, so I have been slowly introducing him to new experiences at his level. We have given him an area in the house where he can just relax, process his new reality, and feel safe. He is a little shy when meeting new people, but will definitely warm up over time. Fortunately, he has a very big appetite and is very treat motivated! I’m happy to report that he does not show any signs of food aggression. He also loves other dogs and loves to be in their company! He just wants to receive and give love so much, but is wary possibly due to little human interaction in his past. Needs dog experienced adults. Chandler will surely share his affectionate personality with an appropriate family that understands his yearning to be loved.  House-training is in progress. Need home with attached yard.

On 8/31/20, 3rd vet exam and neuter, the vet told us that he has 4 front lower teeth worn down (common with neglect case and from being locked in a kennel & chewing cage). 3 Vets confirmed they did not need extraction. Prior vets and shelter vet did not inform us of need to remove any teeth. Only noted tartar at shelter.  His skin is now healed from the flea dermatitis. Looking great. Loves food and eating well. 

Vet confirmed at time of neuter exam, no dental extraction needed for worn lower bottom teeth.  

Chandler is very bonded to his foster home with women and men.  Also great with neighbors older kids and other dogs, that may visit out front.  However, he will need time to adjust emotionally to new potential adopters, since he wants to follow his foster home.  He would love a dog friend at home that is polite and not try to challenge him. 

Update:  Chandler was adopted but returned within the month due to sudden fear issues and nipped their adult daughter.  When he returned back to his foster home who he loved, he was nervous and took a few days to relax again, and now doing well.  We are unsure why he has these random fear issues, when he seem so happy go lucky.  He needs a very quiet routine and experienced adult home with yard to work thru any new fear issues.  Once he adjusts, he is lovable with men and women in the home.
