Greyhounds are known as racing dogs. Once they retire, most of them are put to sleep. However, rescue organizations continuously do their best to rescue them. Amigo is a greyhound who was rescued from Spain.
Amigo was adopted by a woman named Antia from Poland. However, he was an uncontrollable dog. Amigo is very aggressive towards other dogs, and anyone who tries to get in his way.
Antia puts a muzzle on Amigo every time they go out for a walk. However, the woman came to a point where she just gave up on him. The rescue organization that found Amigo took him back.
The rescuer brought Amigo to a famous dog rehabilitator named Cesar Millan. Cesar observes Amigo’s behavior so that he can rehabilitate him. The trainer saw how Amigo’s body language reflected his intent to attack other dogs.
When Amigo was placed in an area with another dog, the trainer saw how dangerous he could be. According to Cesar, Amigo was like a weapon on a leash. Cesar took over and held Amigo’s leash.
Using verbal commands and touching, Cesar was able to redirect Amigo’s attention. The trainer repeats this process until the dog realizes that it is not okay for him to lunge at another dog. His capability as a trainer manifested in that moment.
Greyhounds are really fast. They can reach astonishing speeds in a matter of seconds. That’s why it is dangerous for a dog like Amigo to be left unchecked. If there is one thing more concerning than an aggressive dog, it’s an aggressive dog who is fast.
Cesar wants to find a new owner for Amigo after the rehabilitation. He needs an owner who is strongwilled and can give corrections with confidence. Also, Cesar has a lot of dogs in his facility that help change Amigo’s behavior.
Amigo’s high prey drive won’t be solved in one day. It is going to take numerous training sessions to keep him behaved. Cesar has both the time and resources to make that happen.
