We pick these breeds for Onyx based on his look, personality, behavior, and singing voice. I agreed to take Onyx into a free 6 week board and train and find him a new home after meeting him. He had recently nipped his neighbor when he went chasing after her dog and she picked up her dog and Onyx got her on his way up to the dog. His family was going to have him put down the next day because they didn't know how to handle him and they had a frail family member moving in.
I saw good dog in him and apparently so did my family, because when he was living with us after his board and train, they fell in love and he;s been with us ever since.
Onyx's behavior has improved 95%, leaving just a little bit of his former Scamp self in evidence.
