His guarding behavior around food and toys means that he needs to be the only dog in the house and is not a good fit for a home with children.
“We would love for Hector to be able to live with other animals and children,” the shelter writes on Facebook. “If this was the case, he would be happily in a home by now, which is what we all want for him.”
Hector has made great strides with training, and shelter staffers are eager to show the 2-year-old dog’s new owner how good a boy he can be.
With any luck, Hector won’t be the loneliest dog for much longer.
