About Howie

Howie
Newfoundland
1.5 years old
102lbs
Male- neutered 

Howie was living with a family and an older female husky for 1 year until surrendered due to family health issues.

Howie has never been socialized with male dogs with high energy before he was surrendered ( during the appropriate socialization age ) and due to this, he becomes fear aggressive in their presence and has lashed out at a human that tried to get in between the male dogs the first day he was adopted . At this time, Howie will not go to a home with another male dog.

Howie does LOVE female dogs, especially older calm females that want to show him the ropes and boss him around. He is a follower and becomes very attached to his female dog friends. He will learn quickly from an older female dog! 
 

Howie will not go to a home with children of any age which includes if you're a grandparent that has grandkids over or planing to have kids/pregnant. He does not react well to high energy of dogs and it seems that high energy of any kind due to lack of exposure to this at a younger age. 
 

A huge reason these issues occur, is due to lack of allowing rescue dogs to decompress when adopted. Decompression is needed for dogs to acclimate to their surroundings and become comfortable and trust their owner before introduction occur or outings to meet people. Humans have failed him in setting him up for success. 
 

Howie has done amazing at his foster home. He loves his foster moms ( also loves men ) and has been being introduced slowly to female dogs during his decompression phase  to both male and female dogs. There have been no issues but him growling at a high energy 7 months old male dog that was in his face. 
 

Howie is potty trained, crate trained, loves to play ball, cuddle, lounge around, be brushed, and really just wants a calm home with an experienced dog owner to live his life ! 
 

Howie will have no issue successfully being placed in a home with these guidelines set in place as he has been with his foster for over a week and had zero issues of concern!
