Hi all! It’s my first time posting - and it may be pretty lengthy. My husband and I back in July took in a stray/rescue. He was dumped By the marsh, and was taken in by a man (who i later found out threw bricks at his outside pen cause he wouldn’t stop crying, whining, and wanting attention), fast forward 2 weeks, my friend who rescues cats - brought him to her house because he wanted him gone and if she didn’t he would’ve gone to the shelter. He had a host of things wrong (Intestinal worms, lymes disease, not neutered, and heartworm positive ) and we were told he was about 3 years old and a mixed dog. We wanted to help this poor dude out so we took him in, so far have taken care of everything but heartworms (appt this Friday). When my vet took a look at him - she’s like oh - he’s just a puppy and looks to be a cane corso! Soooo... we ended up with a CC pup who has never been socialized, is afraid of any type of loud noise, and a mess. We have an 11 year old American bulldog mix who I can’t determine if he’s aggressive towards her (outside only- he’s fine with her in the house) but he bulldozes into her and when she corrects him he becomes more intense? I currently have him in training with a obedience trainer -behavior specialist. My issues? Besides the thing with our other dog, he nips at my arms or legs - the other day he got my side. when we are playing ball outside. He is crated during the day as we both work and he had chewed the couch already- He goes on daily walks in the morning, then when I get home from work, and at night we do a pack walk with our female (weather depending). He’s afraid of any type of loud noise or even rain - total shut down mode - won’t eat, won’t go potty etc.. and no matter what? He doesn’t sleep all through the night - no matter what we try, dark- quiet- crate covered-un covered, door open, door shut, tv on- tv off, white noise -air conditioner is always on. The crate is in the bedroom next to our bed so he can see my husband at least. He wakes up all hours- we have the same routine every day , pretty much same bedtime (around 10) and this guy will wake up at 12:30 or 2 or 4 - whatever mood suits him. We don’t get up with him or acknowledge that he’s crying (he eats dinner every night and goes potty before bed) - the only time he’s gotten a pass and me out of bed is if we had a thunderstorm and he wouldn’t do anything but bolt right into the house instead of going potty. I figured he needs to go potty (and he did). I seriously need help and we are desperate for sleep... he’s a good boy but needs some work. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you for reading - I know it was long. Just wanted to get the history out there.
