Welcome Sydney to CCRT! Sydney was surrendered to CCRT from a shelter, where she arrived a stray. Therefore, Sydney is a woman of mystery as nothing is known about her life prior to arriving at the shelter.
Sydney has fear-based aggression toward humans and will bite if she is overwhelmed. During this stressful time in her life, this is not an unexpected reaction. However, once she trusts you, she is relatively easy to handle but will still growl and inhibit her bite in situations where she is unsure, even with the person she trusts.
She is working hard on her bathroom habits and eliminates outside approximately 50% of the time. Her furever family will require patience, understanding and continue Sydney’s training with regular bathroom breaks, walks and a consistent routine to ensure her success.
Sydney is dominant, sassy, bossy and playful with other dogs. She will show other dogs her teeth with regard to food. If this occurs, she responds well to a simple verbal correction. If she is unsure of an approaching dog, she will warn them with a growl. Sydney has not been cat tested and has not yet met any large dogs.
Sydney is a world class snuggler and loves to give kisses. Tons and tons of kisses. However, due to her potential for biting if frightened, only children over 12 who will be respectful of her space, needs and comfort are recommended.
Sydney has proven herself to be quite the escape artist. She should be walked with a martingale collar or a slip lead. She easily escapes her harness and flat collar. Extra special attention is required with regard to any potential escape routes from the house or yard.
Sydney is social media savvy and she has her very own Facebook page!
If you would like to adopt Sydney, please fill out an adoption application for her. You can also purchase a sweater and/or blanket for her, or any of our other foster dogs. Please consider becoming a CCRT Sponsorship Angel for any of our fosters, by making a donation towards their care.
