Wyatt was my first real experience with an anxious dog that I had to take care of, and it was not a good mix.
The perks of Wyatt were that the dog did learn to be potty trained, he did learn to stop chasing the cats, and he was a very playful creature. The cons of this dog, though, were that he was very attached and so whenever I left for a while, he had a tendency to tear up my clothing, stuffed animals, or anything of mine that I left in a place he could get to. He also barked a lot, and was too high energy for me to manage well, as I prefer animals that are laid-back.
For the four years I had him, he was a menace. When we got a fenced yard and let him out more, he learned how to jump the fence and despite all of our attempts, one day he did get out, and he never came back, so I do not know if Wyatt is still alive, or dead.
