Here is a bit of history on Cy: He came into rescue from New Mexico where he ended up in a shelter after he had been attacked by a larger dog. He endured a severe eye injury which led to the right eye needing to be removed. He has adjusted well to single eye vision.
Cy is a sweet, non-aggressive, and obedient dog. He has a fantastic personality that blossomed soon after he settled comfortably into his foster’s home. Cy especially loves the foster’s husband and follows him all around. Cy’s prior family mistook play for aggression, and he did nip a couple of times. He might launch himself at you, but when he does that, it means he wants to play with you. For this reason, he needs an adopter who can read a dog’s body language and act accordingly. And, for this reason, it will be best not to have children in the home. He can be mouthy and will put his teeth against your skin, but not to bite, it is soft and does not cause pain.
There are other dogs in the foster home, Cy loves other dogs but has no idea how to play with them. If a big dog confronts him, then Cy just backs down and walks away. He does not like confrontations. He gives a low growl if that happens. Cy is crate trained and goes into his crate when asked to do so. When you speak to him, he listens very carefully. He now uses the dog door and there are no problems in the house. Cy enjoys chasing cats, but his foster has now trained him not to chase hers anymore. If the adopter has cats, he might need a refresher course.
Cy would love a warm, cozy, and loving forever home. Might that home be yours?
