Onyx is a bit shy at first but quickly warms up into an energetic ball of fur! While Onyx can be wary of strangers and will need practice with positive introductions to strangers he does bond quickly and strongly to new people that are kind to him.
Onyx has shown to be good with other dogs and while he enjoys playing he can be a bit jealous around his humans and for this reason would do best as the only pet in the home. Onyx dislikes children, he finds them too unpredictable and frightening. He will need to go to an adult only home in order to be successful.
Onyx struggles to settle in new environments and will need a patient guardian who can give him the space, structure, and support he needs in order to settle. Working with a Animal-Kind Trainer will help start you off on the right paw!
