Ermac arrived in rescue via a hoarding case where they grew up having to fight for everything. This is a lifestyle that leaves dogs severely under-socialized with limited understanding of positive human interactions and a tendency toward resource guarding behaviors. Though humans make Ermac nervous and he tends to have a stand off disposition, he has taken to the routine lifestyle at the rescue really well and now knows he never have to go without a meal. 

Ermac's caregivers describe him as a loner, to himself from both humans and dogs. You can see him with his chi pack but he’s still always distant from the rest. Still so scared, timid, and shy after a little over a year here. He has caught on to routine like the others but still does not seem comfortable in his place or own skin, always hunkered down.

Ermac is a serious project. He needs a home with LOTS of patience as he continues to mature into being a pet. We are hopeful that with more time and patience and consistency Ermac may learn to appreciate what being a pet is. He will likely never be a lap pet; he may never really want to be a companion. Ermac lives life on his independent terms and is looking for a home that will accept him as this.
