Sinatra is a 7 year old intact male Akita/Husky mix who was surrendered to ACC due to the potential for conflict with the children that live in the home. The owner had Sinatra since he was a puppy.
He does not have any health issues as per the previous owner.
Around strangers Sinatra is described as friendly and outgoing but can be shy and nervous at first. He lived with a 1 year old boy and has become aggressive and fearful towards the child for unknown reasons; the owner is concerned that if he is not watching his son may do something (pulling ears etc.) that would cause a conflict increase between the two. He was described as wanting to protect his space when the child is near and will begin to snarl as the child approaches.
He plays in a gentle manner with adults and strangers but does not play at all when it comes to children.
The owner recommended that the he be placed in a single dog only home due to going after unfamiliar dogs during walks. He was relaxed and playful around a 9 year old male Chihuahua that he lived with.
The owner was able to touch his food and take it away but others including the children would not be able too. He shows fear when having his coat brushed or attempting to trim his nails. He will growl at people when he is woken from a sleep or someone unfamiliar approaches the home or yard. The owner stated that he will snap in an attempt to bite while being restrained for vaccines, etc.
He is described as a friendly, affectionate playful, confident, mellow, excitable, independent, aloof and anxious dog with a medium activity level. His owner’s favorite thing about him is that he is smart, gives high fives, very protective and affectionate and makes for great company.
Some of his favorite activities are running outdoors, playing tug of war with a rope and hide and seek.
When your home the dog will tend to be in the same room as you, he enjoys playing with stuffed toys, squeaky toys as well as chew toys and bones. He sleeps on his bed outside the bedroom door and eats both wet and dry food at his own pleasure. His favorite treat is a lamb bone.
He is house trained and will rarely if ever have an accident in the home. He is well behaved when left alone in the home or yard. He has never been crated so his behavior is unknown. He knows various commands such as sit, down, shake, give paw, come, stay and heel and he knows commands in both English and French.
When greeting a female puppy at the gate, Sinatra was extremely stiff and uncomfortable, he would often lip lick and attempt to exit back into the building. There was no further introduction and Sinatra was taken back inside to avoid him any further stress he was displaying.
