*Separation Anxiety: Barks out of excitement when the foster comes home. Givenchy also idolizes his humans. He’s learning to be more independent and can chew on bones on his own
*Dog Friendly: Mostly focus on people. Occasionally barks at large dogs on walks to protect his pack, and to dogs at the foster’s home if they are about to step on Givenchy
*Potty: Can hold up to 5 hours on controlled water intake. Will not pee in the crate if not given excessive water during the night. If letting him pee before bed and limit water intake, can hold up to 7 hours during the night.
On Oct 28 2018, a university student witnessed Givenchy being run over by a speeding scooter crossing the road. His little body flew across the side walk and landed on the middle of the road, and another incoming vehicle came his way without realizing that he was there. Fortunately, his legs were so short that the sedan just drove over him without touching him. The university student rushed Givenchy to the vet. Fortunately only his nose was broken. His eyes though were moved due to the accident.
His microchip traced back to the owner, who wanted nothing to do with Givenchy. He has signed and moved the ownership over to our rescuer. Sweet Givenchy loves cuddling and enjoys attention. He doesn’t care much about other dogs or cats. Extremely kiddo friendly, he also loves going on walks.
Givenchy thought he has found his perfect home but for some unknown reasons he started peeing in the home. After 2 months of fruitless potty training, he is returned back to CooGo.
He will fit great in a family that can give him all the attention he needs, and the patience to help him assimilate into the new family.
