Beau Geste was purchased as a puppy from a breeder in South Carolina, but was surrendered to a local rescue several years later because he was fearful and had a bite history. He was adopted out as an emotional support dog and, although loved, wasn’t cut out for the job and his behavior only escalated. Beau can only be placed with a very experienced handler who has no children living in or regularly visiting the home, and they must be very adept at reading dog body language.  Beau gets along well with other dogs and dog-savvy cats but has human aggression, and will need to wear a muzzle when near unfamiliar people or teaching new commands. He has been with his foster for more than two months and, while he has shown improvement in many areas, including better restraint in misplaced aggression and cession of human resource guarding, he is still displaying “nip and run” behavior.  Because of the misplaced aggression, an e-collar cannot be used and any correction (verbal or physical) that Beau perceives as too harsh elicits an aggressive response. Beau has received extensive obedience training, and his foster is currently working on behavior modification, which takes much longer to fix.  Beau will need a very special adopter who is 100% committed to him.
