Advanced Hero Adoption, Chow Chow, neutered boy, 5 years.
Update: Malachi beams with joy around people he knows. He is improving with his trust issues and now willing to let us brush him, stand or sit behind him without him panicking, and more.
He has begun leaning against the people he is bonding with and he likes giving high-5s.
Thank you to the volunteers dedicating themselves to his continued, huge improvement.
He is housetrained.
He is great with some dogs.
Malachi needs a hero. He has physical and emotional challenges. Physically, he has misshapen back legs and hips (birth defect), but walks at his own pace. Emotionally, he fears strangers and can be intolerant of strangers lunging, pushing, or forcing entry into his personal space.
We don't know what Malachi has endured. But a very experienced, adult-only home is a necessity for his continued improvement.
