Ivan, to look at is charming, but does lack an abundance of social skills. He does fine on a leash and by the way he acts, could only be 18 months or at the most 2 years old. After saying all the nice things about Ivan, don’t ever try to put him in a kennel by yourself. At the shelter where I picked him up, it took two of us, really trying hard not to get bitten, and a good 10 minutes to finally get him in a kennel. He was not happy but we finally managed to do it. I would say that he has never been in a kennel before, or has had a very bad experience in one. I did warn the staff that when it came to loading for his trip up north, be prepared, and don’t take any chances, as he will bite, out of fear or what I don’t know, just be careful. This is something that the rescue will have to work on after he gets settled and isn’t as stressed out as he is now.
