    My name is Jennifer and I currently work as a veterinary technician in the Kansas City area. I had acquired a 22lb Beagle/Basset mix out of a Kansas Area Animal Control that has been in my possession for roughly three months. 'Turk' had a unique situation, where I had first encountered him through a teaching school that used him as a lab animal. From there, it was immediately apparent he lacked social skills, and was feared by others due to his appearance and quirky expressions. Needless to say, the only option I was presented was to adopt him to keep him from failure at animal control due to his social tendencies to growl and become fear ... (Read More)aggressive in the kennel which later attributed at home with us finding out in particular to men. Needless to say, since out of Animal Control, Turk' has much improved, and is learning to trust others slowly but surely. I have never seen him act out aggressively however, he is still hesitant and fearful of new situations and men- especially when kenneled. Additionally, 'Turk' has learned to walk well on a leash, is very active, and does well and takes note of other dogs and their interactions. He loves to play and can be a bit mouthy at times. He has also been kennel trained and now knows sit. As far as his health, he has had multiple wellness exams and is current on Rabies, Da2pp, Bordetella, a Heartworm test, Heartworm prevention and a fecal. He was treated for Whipworms and is now done with his third month treatment of panacur. He is neutered and is estimated to be a year old. It would seem that with the help of engaging 'Turk' into my home with my partner that he would keep getting better and better. Still, we are having issues with the fact that he has major anxiety around men until becoming comfortable after what seems like weeks at a time. I am reaching out to get him into the best suitable home that can work in conjunction to his needs. He is a very loving dog, playful, and does really well with other dogs otherwise. I am absolutely willing to keep him in my care for however long it takes to find a willing and perfect home that is better suited for him. Thank you for your time and feel free to email back with additional questions or considerations. (Less)
