Atlas was originally adopted from the Harbor Animal Shelter but the guy that adopted him could not keep him in his apartment complex. Atlas came to BRLA to find a home that suits him best. He has demonstrated his like of dogs in public. He has social skills but he does not like to share so should be the only dog in the home. Atlas is fine to have canine friends out in the world as long as he knows his owner is engaged. With Atlas, and any rescue dog, the careful and proper integration into a new environment needs to be incremental to allow him to gain confidence and learn what is to be expected from his owner. Atlas needs a confident calm leader he can depend on to gain confidence and to be able to look to for direction. Without confidence a dog can be reactive from insecurity/fear. Atlas gets all his confidence from the humans around him.
Atlas is energetic and eager to learn from a strong leader.
