  Baxter, 2.5 years Male Golden-Doodle

Baxter is a neutered 2.5 yr old Golden-Doodle who needs a very special home. He was in a loving home with two small dogs, parents and kids/grandkids, but it seems he missed a window of socialization in his early life as he was extremely fearful and timid. He has never shown aggression, but when he gets spooked, he will run over anyone in his way to flee and can knock over a small child easily. In his previous home he would hide out in his crate. He's going to need the right adopter who has experience with behavior modification, maybe someone who has taken a dog from the south who started out extremely timid. Another dog would be a plus for this guy as well as a fenced in yard in a quiet setting. He is house-trained. Under a veterinarian's supervision, he was tried on Prozac and trazadone with no luck. They had him in an obedience/socialization class and the instructor told them it was too stressful for him. He seems better - calmer - with men than with women. Please do not call or email.
