Aladdin, a sweet little pup is looking for adventure in a forever home. He came to RMCR with suspicion of abuse in his past, he was referred to as a broken animal and was said to be unpredictable, to have trust issues. He had cigarette burns on his ears. He was afraid of getting slammed in doors and getting picked up, he hoarded his food. Coming to his foster home, Aladdin was aware and alert but seemed insecure, stubborn, or cautious, and did not wanting to be re-directed or picked up, he would growl and try to nip. Growling and some snapping gave clues to him being cautious and protective. For these reasons, no young children for Aladdin. These are common behaviors when a dog gets re-homed but as I learned more about Aladdin and his past and did some detective work as to why he was acting in certain ways I became able to work slowly with Aladdin to build trust. He is doing well with canine house mates but does like to go off on his own to his little bed. He is obedient and wants to be loved. He loves to lay out in the sun and enjoys the freedom of the backyard in general so a fenced yard is a must. Aladdin does like to cuddle once he trusts and would love to be showered with affection in an adult forever home. A small companion dog would be a plus for Aladdin.
