Boss continually gets overlooked and we aren't sure why. He did have some trouble decompressing when he first arrived at TAPS . Since he has settled in, he seems great. He does have some sensitive areas where he might give out a little warning growl if you touch him in the wrong place but that is due to carry over from a rough life. It appears he had a collar embedded in his neck at one point.

While he can act a little grouchy in his kennels when other dogs walk by, we have done a dog intro with him and he actually did very well.

We do suggest a quieter, adult only home for Boss because we think he still carries scars from his past but give this baby a chance to trust and you'll have a friend for life. He may also need some guidance on re-potty training but a few gentle reminders should set him on the potty training path. He does not like to be handled around the neck, we believe this is from his past and his embedded collar but he seems fine being handled everywhere else.
