About

Health
Spayed / neutered, special needs. Medical issues: Chronic eye irritation, inflammation and dry eye-requires life long medication twice daily and cleaning of the eyes two to three times a day. Chronic ear infections and inflammations- requires life long daily cleaning and potentially regular medications for flareups. Seasonal allergies- requires twice daily oral allergy medications during flare ups (spring through fall) Severe separation anxiety currently on medications to help him cope, does not handle periods more than two hours away from "his person". Behavioral issues to be aware of: McKinley hates strangers. All sizes, ages and colors. He without a doubt has a "bite first and ask questions later" kind of attitude. He does generally give a slight growl as a warning but will lunge and grab hold of any body part he can. He does resource guard-water and dry food are usually hit or miss with people. Bones, wet food and chews are more valuable to him and he will charge to protect them. His squeaky toys are his highest value item. He has crossed a room to remind someone it's HIS toy. .

Meet McKinley

If interested in adopting, fostering or meeting this pet, please fill out an adoption application at www.salfidrescue.org. Please note that the breed(s) and size the dogs are posted as is our best guess as we usually don't have any history on the dogs or background information.

McKinley's ideal home would be a single women, retired or works from home, who can give him round the clock attention and doesn't travel often. He loves to snuggle and play and his heavily attached to "his person". He loves squeaky toys and carries them around everywhere he goes.

He would do best in a home with no cats, no kids, no men, and not regular visitors. Also, no other dogs is preferred but he can coexist with submissive dogs similar in size or slightly larger. He must go to a home with experience handling aggressive dogs; applications who has not had first hand experience with aggressive dogs of their own will not be considered.

McKinley will never be a dog ho can happily visit with strangers or spend extended periods in a public setting. His life prior to coming to us set him up to file and was not the friendliest. Although he's come a long way he does have his issues and quite the attitude. McKinley will need weeks if not months to fully adjust to your lifestyle. We are asking that he stays within an hour of his foster to help his transition and to provide any support he may need.

McKinely's separation anxiety has made potty training very difficult. He also does not handle being crated very well and has destroyed numerous crates attempting to get out.
