Theo is a sweet gentle giant. This big boy doesn't have much life experience, so he's looking for a confident guardian to calmly introduce him to new things. Theo is a fearful boy in need of continued behaviour modification using positive reinforcement techniques. Theo is getting comfortable walking on a leash, but needs periodic reassurance especially in unfamiliar areas. Theo is unsure of men, and new people in general. He's very curious though and likes to observe things before he decides to approach. This sweet boy needs a patient and gentle person who is comfortable working with fearful dogs. Theo has lived with dogs in the past, however he does have conflict with some male dogs. A behaviour counselling session with shelter staff will be required prior to adoption. Theo takes his time getting to know new people, and it may require multiple visits in a comfortable and familiar environment before he will be ready to go home. Theo will shut down when he is overwhelmed, so someone who understands his needs and is willing to accommodate his quirks will be able to help him grow into a confident dog. Applicants are encouraged to submit applications prior to visiting the shelter. Applications can be sent to [email protected]
