Sweet, Appogee!!

Django at 9+ during our Rocky Mtn. tour last year:

This reminds me of a couple I met a few years ago. I was driving across Nevada on the way home from a climbing trip in Utah and I saw a couple with bikes, pushing their bikes up a long incline. One of them had a trailer with a dog in it. Turns out they were from PDX and had riden to Arizona(?) and were on their way home. I gave them a ride and we exchanged numbers. A week or so later, I got a call. They were passing through. They came and stayed with me for a couple of days. Their dog was so cool, a big ol pit bull who loved riding in his trailer all around the western states.

I wrote about this back when it happened and it turns out that a few of you ST folks actually knew these people and their dog.

Small world.

Dogs rule!

So, so, happy Max found a home with you. Extremely excited for you. I tell people over and over again... Loki was also rescued hours before being Euthanized. Dogs like Max and Loki usually are the best dogs and... It seams they know that this is their second chance and take it on fully.

It's been about a week now, and a few behaviors are coming out: Max has some protective tendencies, with low growling & several barks at anyone who walks by or comes to the house.

Leaving him alone in the house has proven to be a problem- he barks a lot, and my neighbors have definitely noticed and commented.

This is relatively new behavior since he arrived, so I'm not overly concerned yet- it does point out that he's going to need some training, though. Fortunately, I've got some time in the next several weeks to focus on this.

For right now, I'm trying to create as structured a routine for him as possible, reward good behaviors, not react to unacceptable behaviors. The negative behavior has been somewhat on the increase: hopefully this is simply an escalation that will fall back as the structure (and leadership) becomes clearer.

Advice is appreciated!

Good luck, sounds like you are starting the right steps.
It can be challenging, hang in there he needs you.
Sometimes bring in a trainer for a short time, can be a large help.

Best to the both of you.

The growling may go away. He's in a new place. Positively discourage that habit, if that makes sense.

"Losing a canine friend is never easy :("

Ain't that the truth.

Get another pup. It really helps.
