or what I can gather. Sydney was sold to a family, who promptly neutered him, which is good. But then after 9(!!!!) yrs gave him back to the breeder because he "no-longer fit into their lives".
He does not like most men, he's scared of them, brooms, vaccuums(off even), claustophobic.
I called the breeder because of these behaviors to see if she could shed some light onto it. She n ow believes that the male in the family mis-treated him because of how skittish he is.
Sydney is doing MUCH better now. He loves my dad, pulled away from him at first but now he is looking to him for "acceptance and love".
Well my dad gives it to him, he's always been nice to animals, as far as I know.
He even played in the hose with him. Sydney LOVES the hose!!!! OF all things!!
