Meet Rex

Hi, my name is Rex! Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Rambunctious, active and intelligent
-Can Live with Kids: 16 and older, Rex is jumpy and mouthy and may knock over young children.
-Can Live with Cats: Unknown history, Rex likely has high prey drive and may chase cats in the home.
-Can Live with Dogs: No, Rex has shown inappropriate behavior with other dogs and would likely escalate play. Rex is not a dog park candidate.
-Can do Apartment Living: No, Rex needs space in his new home
-Potty Trained: Rex is not fully house trained, him and his sister Ellie were mainly kept as outdoor dogs in their previous home.
-Bite History: No
-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: Yes, basic obedience or 3 private lessons depending on experience. Rex would benefit from classes that focus on appropriate socialization with other dogs as well as the basics to ensure his jumpy and mouthy behavior does not continue as he becomes an adult dog.
-Energy Level: High
-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Yes, a neuter/ MC

Additional Information: Rex came into WHS as a surrender with his sister Ellie. Rex and Ellie were kept outdoors at all times and did not have a lot of human socialization. Rex lacks manners and impulse control, he needs a family that can invest in his future and provide him with consistent training from an experienced dog owner. His new family will need to help him understand appropriate behavior in a positive way as well as providing him plenty of mental and physical stimulation. If you are interested in meeting this smart, handsome young pup, please fill out an adoption application for review.
