Ajax is a sensitive and a little bit spoiled 2 year old. He came as an owner surrender when his family had to take in an elderly family member that is allergic to dogs. Ajax was very close to the teenage son that is on the spectrum. The family shared that Ajax had a bad experience at a grooming facility which can make him snappy to items approaching his face or head. He is still very reserved.
Ajax needs to build his confidence to be able to trust and lose his desire to snap in protest.
He is really good with other dogs at BRLA. He is our go to social tester and helps fearful dogs. We are starting to see the playful side of Ajax. He loves jolly balls. He walks well on leash and knows his basic commands. He is great walking with dogs but his ability to live with one (remember he is spoiled) is not recommended to start with. He should be the only dog in the home with dog friends out in the world.
An adult only home with experience working with fear reactive dogs like Ajax. Considering his history of snapping he needs a very calm assertive leader that will replace his tentative ways with relaxed and trusting behavior.
He's a little guy and will be a good companion in the right hands. Only the most skilled hands for Ajax.
