Brando Bo Bando is a cutie pie, but he needs a special dog person who is experienced with training. Brando is a victim of neglect. He was left behind when his previous owners moved. To make matters worse, they left him confined to a crate. Brando was unable to run/play, eat, and unable to get away from his own waste..for a month. As traumatizing as it is for us to read about, you can imagine the effects this has left on Brando. He is an incredibly sweet, affectionate dog, but he needs a lot patience and training now. Brando is very jumpy/needy for affection, he is anxious and reactive when he sees other dogs on walks, and he is anxious when left alone (understandably). Brando is trying to be more brave when seeing dogs, but our shelter environment is stressful and he is overwhelmed here. Brando would benefit from meeting balanced, friendly, wiggly dogs to improve his social skills. As for his jumpy/needy behaviors, Brando is extremely sensitive. He needs someone who is confident and firm, but who will use more positive reinforcement techniques. We also think that when he is adjusted to his new home, and has more human interaction on a daily basis than he is getting here at the shelter, his jumpy/needy behaviors should decrease. More playtime and exercise will also help. He just wants to be loved!
