Meet Cliff

Intake date 19 July 2021
neutered male chocolate tri herding breed mixy-mix
Approximate birthdate 18 February 2021
.
Cliff was transferred from a rescue partner due to displays of reactivity in his foster home. We have no information on origin. PLEASE READ HIS ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BEFORE COMMENTING OR MAKING APPLICATION.
.
Cliff is available for placement immediately to an experienced training centered home, with multiple stable dogs. He will not be placed into a home with children.
.
Cliff is super cute, and has wonderful coloring. He will be rough coated, and is a red-tri with his coat color leaning towards dark chocolate. He is crate trained, is learning leash manners, as well as dog manners, and is learning how to be quite and welcoming in a home.
.
Cliff has had issues in the past with reactivity to strangers, and perhaps some resource guarding of his person (it was difficult to differentiate in the behavioral videos we were sent). Cliff was unofficially diagnosed with Spoiled Puppy Syndrome, and we wholeheartedly agree. After a brief introduction/handoff at a shelter, Cliff has been fearful, but non-reactive and is quickly coming around thanks to being handled like a working dog -- a little guidance, rules, parameters, and boundaries and lots of good exposure with grown dogs to help him understand. This pup is showing us he get's it, and is very smart and willing. Anyone interested in adopting Cliff should be prepared to continue the work started here. Cliff will be placed with a training contract with a deposit to be refunded after the successful completion of multiple training classes (type and time frame to be determined during the adoption process).
.
This dog is located in Maryland - we do not ship or transport dogs. For information on adoption, an FAQ, and our application, please see our website at mabcr.org. If you are interested in adoption, please submit an application, complete with documentation.
.
Dogs that have not lived previously with children will not be offered to homes where young children reside. We do not 'test' dogs with children or cats, since testing may not show an accurate picture, and may give false comfort to their new home. If a dog has lived with children or cats, that will be stated above.
.
Please note that some young dogs may be placed with a neuter deposit and contract, and any available dog may be placed with a training deposit and contract -- this would be noted on offer, prior to placement. For additional information on these policies, please see our website.
