I adopted a rescue dog a few months ago with a history of abuse/neglect. I still can’t get him near the door of the house so he lives in an outside kennel and has a dog box. For example, last weekend I sat down and threw treats his way to get him closer to me but he got halfway to the house and ran back to the kennel. He won’t tolerate a leash and just lays on the ground. The next problem would be house training due to the leash phobia and not wanting to go into the house. This Newfoundland/Boxer mix is the sweetest dog I have ever owned and I want him to be happy and healthy in our home!
