Story, Personality, Others:
Edgar was adopted from us as a puppy, he was 2 months old. He was returned now, after over 3 years because his owner says he is too protective about him. The dog is so attached to him and he growls and bark when other people approach him, strangers or even family members.
All these people that want to adopt a puppy because they want to “train him”. And then they give the dog back after 3 years because they have trained nothing.
In the shelter Edgar is a very gentle dog. He is lovely with people, very gentle and cuddly and very obedient. He sits on command, comes when called and walks well on the leash. As he lived in a home we expect him to be house clean. In the shelter there is noone that he is particularly attached to so we have not observed this protective behavior that his owner mentioned and it is possible he would show it again in a home if he got particularly attached to one person. But it seems like an issue that can be worked on and certain behaviors can be avoided with the right education that he obviously did not get.
Edgar is social with other dogs.
We are very sad for him as he obviously suffers. There is no way for a dog to understand why one day he is dumped in a strange place and he never sees his people again. He looks at the gate all the time and when he is loose he runs towards the fence whenever a car is stopping.
