Just needs a break from shelter life. Any amount of time away would be beneficial! Started leash biting but still very manageable. On meds, which should be tapered off while in foster, if being fostered for 1 week or more.  He is reactive but because he gets excited and wants to say hi to other dogs. He's not well socialized, so comes on strong.
