A2011897Monday, 21 December, 2020I have not experienced the aggressive behaviors previously noted for Rambo, but by knowing this information, I took every precaution possible. He was very timid as I approached his run and would not come to me. After some time, I was able to carefully leash him and take him out with no issues. He moved slowly and calmly while outside. Utilizing the "leash hook"? seems to be the best option for removing the leash safely. This interaction did not include any teeth baring, snapping or growling.Monday, 21 December, 2020 4:15PMBehavior

A2011897Thursday, 28 January, 2021Meet Mambo (A2011897) Our Akita mix 'Mambo' (A2011897) is looking for his Fur-Ever home! Mambo is 12 yrs. young and weighs 39 lbs. Upon receiving Mambo from an owner surrender situation, the kennel staff have been dealing with his aggressively reactive behavior inside AND outside of his kennel. If the kennel staff member is successful at leashing Mambo for a walk, Mambo will keep showing aggression during the walk by growling, showing teeth, and charging at you if the kennel staff member attempts to pet, talk, or even look directly at Mambo according to staff. Mambo will also consistently try to bite or re-direct on you if you attempt to un-leash or leash him. The previous owner stated that Mambo is reactive to other dogs as that piece of information was confirmed at the shelter as Mambo would bark in every direction where a dog is located. As you may have guessed, with the right environment, and TLC form a responsible owner, Mambo may find the peace that he is looking for and become a loving dog that he may have once been before! The shelter is no place for a senior dog so please help Mambo find a good home soon as he is ready to make a change. Will you be the one to change his life Fur-ever??? Mambo is **SPONSORED BY PET PROJECT** (free food for life) If you can help, please contact: Rescue@Broward.org Thursday, 28 January, 2021 6:38PMRescue
