Caucasian Shepherd Rescues and Re-Homes Available NOW!
If you are considering adopting an adult CO, PLEASE READ my website on Adoptions, first. (www.ThunderHawkCaucasians.com). Then consider if you have ever had to deal with a REALLY AGGRESSIVE breed before... Like a quick-trigger Rottie, or GSD. It's difficult...you always have to see the "threat" before the dog does, in order to see if it is really a threat or not. If it isn't you will have to distract the CO with a really tasty treat while it becomes aware of the "threat" all the while trying to calm the dog down so it doesn't launch into aggression. As I say in my book, a Caucasian is only for the "hardy few"...
"Giove", located in Lubbock, TX. His foster home tells us: "Giove is good with other dogs, can be very protective of his food though. I have a cat that he does not pay any mind to. I don’t think he would be good around kids he does not know. He is really only aggressive at home, if I take him on a walk or to the park, he is fine with people petting him, so he is socialized when he is away from home. He is neutered, but not up to date on shots. He has tried to bite me when I very first met him at Derrick’s house, but never again since. He’s probably around 2 now. He loves walks, he plays great with the Presa Canario, pit mix, and heeler I already have. Since being with me, he is more social because I do have more people coming in and out of my house than Derrick did. He is more comfortable around males than females I have noticed."

"Mato" (Pronounced Mah-TOO) is available to EXPERIENCED HOMES ONLY -- very tough boy. Just 18 months old, neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and worming. This owner is giving this particular dog up because she is tired of trying (unsuccessfully) to deter the dog from aggressing at every perceived threat. Vet visits are evidently a nightmare -- I told her I have a rescue like that and I just muzzle her everytime we walk out the front door but this owner finds it stressful.
