Hello - My Name's Shadow

Age: 2 yrs
Sex: Male
Size: 26-30 Pounds
Breed: Cocker Spaniel
CCRID#: 1609
Just the Facts
1/12/15 - Shadow was seen at OSU Behavior Clinic on 1/9/15. His diagnosis is severe generalized anxiety with fear related aggression. He will not be available for adoption until (and if) he can be controlled on a new medication regime including behavior modification techniques including mental and physical exercise. It is felt he would do best if an only dog or with a very laid-back, older dog. /Barb 11/25/14 - Shadow will require someone with a lot of patience and someone who understands his behavior and can accept him for himself. He doesn't do well with handling, requiring treats for motivation. He'd do well as an 2nd dog to a very docile 1st dog. He is currently on medication to help with his outbursts. Please call 614-554-1300 if interested in learning more about him./barb 12/19/14 8/25/14 - Shadow has been started on Reconcile with Trazadone to help with his reactionary behavior. He seems quicker to calm when "barking ensues" but will react to others' barking even though he doesn't know why they're barking. Respects a spray bottle and is very treat motivated - loves to work for his treats. Knows some basic commands. Foster Mom is seeing some improvement :-o). 3/8/14 - Shadow is a very fisty 1 y/o who needs an adopter who is VERY savy to cocker behaviors - he gets very reactionary with barking dogs and high activity and needs to be refocused to acceptable behaviors. He likes to play alone and will bark to get the other's attention - then can be too excitable for the other dog. Shadow also doesn't like veterinarians - especially if they are unsure of him. He picks up on insecurity immediately and requires a very confident, calm home. Only adopters in the immediate Columbus area will be considered./barb 11/9/13 - Shadow was an owner surrender from TN because the owners couldn't handle him!!! A shelter volunteer intercepted him before he was taken to the pound. He is a beautiful black youngster who's stature is larger than the normal cocker. Shadow is extremely sweet and smart, and learns quickly but does require a "cocker savy" owner to continue his progression into adulthood. He loves exercise (agility) and lives to "show off" his new tricks; will bark when he doesn't get his way (or you're not quick enough LOL). Only a cocker savy (someone who has dealt with multiple cockers with different dispositions and behaviors) person to take him into their furever home -- patience and strict guidelines are required. His adoption fee is $250.00./12/18/13/bl
