Rex is just about 5 years old. For those who know and understand Rex well, he is a very affectionate, happy-go-lucky, fun loving dog. He is super cuddly and gives the best hugs. He walks nicely on a leash and enjoys trips to the coffee shop for his favorite treat.
Loud noises, unfamiliar noises, or even changes in the level of activity at the Dog House disturb Rex. He suffers from anxiety and will start spinning, chasing his tail, and barking. Even the slightest changes in his environment can result in fits of barking and spinning. When he is agitated like this, he can react and nip at strangers and even those with whom he’s familiar. It’s as if something possesses him and he’s not his usual, sweet self. Because his behavior can escalate quickly, Rex is a resident of our Sanctuary and will spend the rest of his life at the Dog House, unless a prospective adopter is willing to spend an inordinate amount of time learning his triggers and learning to read his body language.
