Rayland - Rescues 2the Rescue



Rayland impresses anyone who meets him. This boy is as smart as a whip and will enjoy being constantly stimulated. A few things make him hard to place- he can climb shorter fences, especially if there is a small critter running on the other side of it. Rayland has killed chickens in his old home, and has shown prey drive behavior near cats, so he cannot be re-homed to a place with smaller animals. Rayland loves human companionship and adores training. He is food motivated, but will do even more for a chance to play with a stuffed toy. His fixation on toys, along with his quick learning made us think of him as a dog who will enjoy working. He may not score the highest on these tests, but if we were able to conduct them with a stuffed toy we know he would score higher (we would just never retrieve the toy...). Rayland has shown resource guarding behavior with a raw hide.
