He is my parents dog and they have not managed his big personality which can turn to aggression. I have had him for about 6 weeks and he is doing really well. I just can’t keep him. Unfortunately, he has bitten a person. Someone came in the house when my parents were not home and he did not like that. He bit her as she was leaving. I think his aggression is out of fear so we are working on building his confidence so he can over come that.
Beau would thrive with someone that can give him lots of attention. If you are able to play with him everyday and go for 20-30 minute walks as well, he will be happy and less likely to misbehave. He is so good and I wish I could give him what he needs.
He needs a home without children or other dogs – at least while he is learning better behavior. We are in training classes now for obedience and he learns very well. He tends to prefer women.

Meet Beau! He is a 6 year old Yorki-Poo that loves walks, treats, toys and his owner’s lap. He is crate and house trained and is not destructive at all with shoes, furniture, etc. He does get into the small trash can in the bathroom so we have to put it up until we get one with a lid. He can be left at home for a full workday, either in the crate or loose in the house. I believe it would be best for him to be with someone that is home more. We walk everyday and he loves it but has a lot of energy and barks when we encounter other people or dogs. He loves to play with his toys, a little tug or toss is great. He likes to romp around in the yard but not by himself. He wants to be where you are. Oh, and he LOVES to get a bath. It’s crazy…..
