Sarge is searching for an owner that will not give up on him.  He has been returned 3 times this year and is having a more difficult time trusting people.  He needs an experienced and confident owner that is ready to train him through his reactivity and anxiousness around strangers as his behaviors have resulted in biting (leaving stitches on 1 occasion) when unaddressed. 

He has shown no aggression towards my husband and I after being properly introduced.  We are continuing to work on his confidence with having new people around and handling him but his owners will need to continue this process of proper introductions.

When he trusts someone, he is full of sloppy wet kisses and wants his butt rubbed all day long.  He is truly a huge goofball that just wants to give you affection.  He loves to play and jump around but doesn't require a lot of exercise in order to settle down.  He loves to play with well-behaved dogs after proper and slow introductions but would benefit from being an only dog for right now so his owners have more time to focus on training.

He was an owner surrender from Ohio where his family did not have the time to spend with him and exercise him.  Sarge was adopted in April of 2020 and his new family loved him, but sadly, Sarge did not get along with the resident dog. Sarge was adopted in July of 2020 and recently turned to SSR again after starting to show aggression towards people.
