Marco

All About Marco: Marco is a male Terrier of 5yrs.

 

Marco needs a loving and understanding home that will help him work through his anxieties.

 

Marco is lead reactive towards other dogs but when carefully introduced he walks well with them. Unfortunately, Marco can be anxious around other dogs within the house and will growl and snap if he feels threatened, so a dog free home would be ideal for him.

 

Marco is anxious around young children and is quickly distressed when they approach him, leading to growling or snapping. Marco can also be unpredictable and snap at some adults and is particularly anxious/submissive around men.  Marco can flinch when being approached by unfamiliar people or touched in certain place or if spooked by certain movements. There have however been no previous incidents of biting but his family have managed Marco's environment well.

 

Despite Marco's difficulties, he has alot of love to give and shows some real affection to his trusted humans, he is just a little confused and potentially has experienced some kind of trauma in his past.

Marco is very intelligent and knows lots of commands and loves puzzles and sniffing games.  

 

Marco generally walks well on the lead unless he sees a small furry animal or a dog and then he pulls.   Marco cannot be off lead due to his high prey drive.

Marco can be left for up to four hours and has not shown destructive behaviours.

With the right environment, experience and a loving family Marco could overcome some of his anxieties and be an amazing companion.

Marco is in STAFFORD area.
