Biography

Rip is a male (will be neutered May 9th 2024) maremma karakachan mix was born August 4th 2023. He is a very sweet dog, loves to be played with, loved on, going on hikes with you, and loves having a job. He currently lives on 7 acres with chickens, 2 young kids, and another dog. His issues and reasons for rehoming are:
1. He chews
2. He digs (he's obviously bored somehow)
3. He can be food aggressive if not careful
4. He can be aggressive with other dogs if not care. He is very dominant. Hoping getting him fixed will help with this.
5. He is still a puppy and likes to play, so has chased the chickens a few times.
I think he just needs someone that knows more about and has more time for a livestock guardian dog. He needs more animals to watch, and he needs to be trained how to do it. He will not be good for a home with small acreage. He is not just a pet, he is a working dog and has to have a job. He absolutely csn be a great dog, he's just way more out of my league than I was ready for unfortunately.
