Upstate NY home for abused/fearful dog needed
« on: November 03, 2010, 09:19:57 AM »
I have a dog that has an extreme fear of men which translates into aggressive behavior if forced into situations with them.  This wasn't evident when I, my boyfriend, and my boyfriends son picked him out at the shelter.. it started to show itself about an hour after we got home.  Given the situation I live in, I cannot keep him, but want to try to find him a better/foster home that is equipped to deal with this sort of fear, instead of just returning him to the shelter.

Does anyone know people in the upstate (Albany) NY and surrounding areas that take in abused/fearful dogs like this?

Here's a picture of the poor guy..  it breaks my heart because he's a velcro dog with me, as I image he would be with any other woman.
