Rex is a very smart, loving and cuddly dog.  

He listens well, loves his toys, and enjoys just hanging out.  He gets excited when his foster folks come home, and follows them everywhere.  He likes car rides, and walks well on the leash.  He can get excited when there are other dogs or rabbits around, but is easily distracted to continue the walk.  He whines in the kennel, but has done fine when left out withe his muzzle on.  Rex has quickly picked up basic commands like “leave it”, “let’s go”, “come”, & “go to your bed“.  He is getting better at asking to go outside.

He has a lot of energy and can get too excitable very quickly.  Not surprising based on his past experiences, he does have some resource guarding issues (toys, food & people), that his foster family is working on.  It’s coming along slowly, but he needs more training and lots of patience.  He is also learning to get along with the resident dogs.  He watches them play and occasionally tries to join in but would also thrive as an only dog. .

Rex is being fostered in Edmonton, Alberta.
