Bushy’s previous guardian reported that he is relaxed and friendly towards large and small dogs.
9/12: When off leash at the Care Center, Bushy greets the female helper dog with a neutral posture but begins to tense up. He becomes fixated on her genital area and attempts to mount her several times, but does listen to being interrupted by the handlers.
