Bagel may look like a super sweet dog, but he has some major behavior issues and resource guards people and other dogs on occasion.  He MUST have an experienced dog owner who knows how to handle dogs with behavior issues.  A dog trainer or behaviorist would be best.   You cannot have him in a corner where he feels that he has no way out or he will growl, bark and show his teeth and it will scare you. He has been living with a dog trainer for over a year now and has gotten adopted several times and he was always returned because the adopters could not handle his personality.   At  his current foster home he does really well and has minimal issues but that took a good  amount of time.   If you are willing to put in the work you'll get  back a hilariously animated, very goofy, super handsome, and personable dog.   Bagel is crate trained, house broken, a mild puller on walks, has no major medical  issues or medication, and can be surprisingly good with guest visitors.  Right now, he lives with a dog trainer, another adult  and 3 dogs. Bagel's favorite activities include walks, playing with his dog  friends, and hanging out in the yard. Bagel's ideal home has one or two adults, has  confident active dogs to play and interact with, a yard, plus patient and experienced dog  owners. 
 
Please do not fill out an application for Bagel unless you have thoroughly read and understand this bio and his issues.  We know he is cute but that doesn't mean he would be an easy dog to handle in your home.
