About the animal:

We adopted Suki during Covid as a puppy, and everything was wonderful – but once she turned 1, she became reactive towards our other dog as well as other dogs. We invested heavily in training for her, with a focus on reactivity. She is now very obedient and well trained, but she is anxious and can get triggered and aggressive, esp connected to resource guarding or protecting her owner (my daughter.) She is loving and sweet, and the anxiety and reactivity is reduced through crate time, consistent schedule and reducing stimulation, but that just is not working for my 23 year old daughter who has an very active life with many dogs and people around. Suki would be an excellent companion, protector and walking buddy for someone who has a calmer, dog free home and is willing to support her to reduce her anxiety. We are committed to finding Suki a home and are willing to take her back if it doesn’t work, watch her when her new owner travels and hope to stay in touch with her. We love her, but she doesn’t work in our active dog filled home.
