Pecan is one of our lovable nut puppies that came to us in March of this year along with his mom, Molly. Having had all of his siblings with forever homes, we quickly found him a foster home that we hoped would only be a short term placement until he was adopted. However, sadly, no adoption ever came for Pecan. He was doing amazing at first with his foster family. Having several adult dogs to help show him the ropes as well as feline friends who he was cohabitating with splendidly. Then his foster mom reached out to us with a concern. She noticed that Pecan was not as friendly with every dog he met which she found odd being that he was in a home with several other dogs whom he was great with. We reached out to a couple of trainers to asses his situation as this was unusual for a dog his age. It was determined that Pecan had some fear aggression to new dogs that he was not familiar with. Of course this would potentially cause an issue with any adoptive family so we decided to get him the help that he will need. Pecan will begin training next month and we know that he will pull through this. His foster mom is determined and we have all the faith in the world that he will make a turn and overcome his fear. With this, a new adoptive family will need to be patient with Pecan and continue to take the time to make him comfortable in new surroundings. We feel that despite his current behavior, he would benefit from having another dog in the home but the temperament of the other dog will need to be specific to what works best with Pecan. He could be in a home with kids but they would need to be older and be more “dog savvy”. Of course, his upcoming training will be able to give us more insight into exactly what he will need moving forward but his foster family knows he will be in a forever home one day.
