Biography

Columbus joined our home in March of this year. I rescued him after he had been abandoned at a neighborhood park. He followed me while I walked /ran 4 miles that day. He is loyal and lovable and very playful! However, he has debilitating separation anxiety and a strong prey drive. He does not get along with our cats. When he has human companionship he's an angel, but when left alone he becomes destructive. He is on medication to manage his behavior but our finances are strained and we cannot afford the services he needs such as doggy daycare, a pet sitter or behavior therapy. He obeys basic commands such as sit, stay, and wait, and is house broken. He is still learning how to walk properly on a leash so we use a "no pull" harness to help him be successful. He truly is a good boy but he needs a lot of attention and a family preferably that works from home or is retired.
