ISSUES: NOT good with cats or young children, resource guarder
For more pictures of Kaiser, please visit his photo album on our facebook page.
ADULT ONLY home recommended.
This guy would be an AWESOME sport prospect. He is very athletic & VERY toy motivated. He just needs to learn that the faster he gives us the toy, the faster we'll throw it again. He is catching on, though.
He is very good in his crate but if there are toys or food in there and you reach towards it, he will charge your hand or the crate door. He says very little unless he has to go outside & he will let us know (whining) that he is desperate. He plays very well with other dogs, especially the girls near his age but he would much rather play fetch with the people. He is a little stiff meeting some new males but that may be just particular males. He loves attention from people but is worried & stressed around very young children.
We have seen him go after our house cat in the excitement to go outside, but he can be easily redirected with a toy &/or the open door.
Kaiser was owner surrendered because he snapped at the toddler, as he crawled past Kaiser's crate, resulting in stitches. He also snapped/grabbed at a kitten, causing the kitten's death.
Our understanding is that he was in his crate or eating his meal when both incidents happened so it was suspected that he was resource guarding his crate &/or food.
Of course, this only made everyone more nervous & with Kaiser's hyper/nervous behaviour to start with, it was decided he needed to go to ahome that could give him the appropriate outlet without the worries.
