How old is he? What's his background?
Sadly, a subject line you've seen millions of times before. This is Marco - he's a very sweet, SMART, gorgeous (doesn't photograph that great though, for some reason), about 1.5 year old, neutered, APBT that Home at Last Rescue has in boarding as a favor to a shelter volunteer. He could neither take the dog in, nor stand the idea of his being ptd solely due to dog aggressiveness (and not kenneling well ) which is a "sucker" thing to do, but we're trying... He has been to BadRap obedience classes and is doing very well [though stressed], could even potentially live with a nice female dog, but there will always be the need for dog management. But, as mentioned, Marco isn't kenneling well, and needs immediate action - there's neither money to board him, nor do we have the heart to continue watching him stress out.

It sounds so far like he's great with people, but can be leash reactive with other dogs (which is not a biggie, Vicki is leash reactive and she's made a lot of progress). I don't know how well he'll accept a crate since he doesn't kennel well, but I'm sure that's workable...I have to find out if he exhibits any kind of SA. I've been looking into setting up tie-downs anyway so he can be trained to ignore my cats. We are also looking at the possibility of maybe flying him to another cheaper location and getting him transported part of the way (if everything works out and I decide to take him).
