I'm currently looking at adopting a dog who has sleep startle from my local shelter. He's a 6 y/o Lurcher and is such a lovely dog who loves to have a good fuss. He was previously adopted out back in December but was returned to the shelter due to the sleep startle, I don't know all the details of it unfortunately. I wouldn't want something like that to be a reason not to give this dog a home but I know that I need to be prepared for anything that may happen because of it. I also currently have a 3 y/o female American Bulldog who's as soft as anything. It'd just be a great help to know what to expect with having a dog with sleep startle, any precautions I have to take concerning the other people in the household and our resident dog and any ways that we can help him work on it if that's possible. Any information or advice you all could give on here would be a huge help.
