Meet Landon

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO. Landon was born in April, 2009. He is a delightful little guy once he trusts you. He loves to be wherever you are. If you are on the couch, he wants to be up on the couch with you. If you are in bed, he wants to be snuggled right up against you. He also loves his food. He will dance all around and tell you how excited he is about his dinner. He gets a little wet food on top of his dry food at dinner. He even does a little dance where he shakes his head. It is very cute. He loves car rides and to go somewhere. However once there he is not very excited about it. That is because he was not properly socialized as a puppy or trained. He wasn't even trained the most basic sit.

Lack of proper socialization when a dog is young leads to fear and resulting behaviors based on that fear. He is afraid of anything new outside - new places, new noises, new people. He doesn’t really like to go on walks as he is very frightened during them. It takes him quite a while to warm up to new people, especially men. If he is approached in a manner where he feels cornered or threatened, he will react aggressively. He is sometimes food aggressive at his bowl to humans. Because of that a house without children is a must.

He also is not reliably house trained. When contained in a smallish area he will not soil in the house. He goes to work with his foster Mom and does not soil in her cube. He hates grass and prefers to do his business on concrete but will go on the grass if made to do so. The rescue’s behavior consultant/trainer guarantees house training if you follow his directions and a session and phone access to him will come with Landon’s adoption.

Landon lives in a home with other dogs and a cat but does not really care for them. He does not dislike them, but he does not want to play with them or interact with them. He has been fine at our vet office and the groomers.

The perfect home for Landon would be a single woman who does not have a lot of company that just wants a little house/lap dog companion. It would be optimal if that person lived fairly close to Landon’s foster mom in the South St. Louis County area so that she could visit with any new potential adopters several times to get Landon used to a new person and home.

Landon is a good doggie, that was failed by humans in his early formative years. He is very healthy and still has a number of years to live and love. He will make the right person a great companion.If you have any questions or would like to meet this pet, please email contact@stlpetrescue.com.
