GSD in New Haven, CT. Shelter

|This poor boy has been in the shelter for a while now. I've been told he is very sweet & not handling shelter life very well. His time is going to be running out soon.|
I'm going to try to see him later this week & might foster him depending on his temperament

|This really saddens me that someone would just abandon their dog like that! Probably some college student who went back home. |
Hope he works out for you cphudson.

|I've been in contact with the shelter. They told me he has a ton of applications on him already so not in danger. But he is still there waiting -???, so asked if he needed to be fostered.|
They told me to call / come back in a few weeks to see if he was still there.
He does have some aggression issues with guarding food, & if given a hard correction will come up on the leash. He doesn't do well if he feels cornered / threaten.
I don't think he sounds ready to go directly into a new home with out some additional behavior modification & training. I'll see in a few weeks what happens.
