      I don't know, but highly suspect, that someone was trying to train him as a hunting dog before abandoning him upon realizing how timid and gun-shy he is. For the first year I had him, he would run away and tremble whenever I picked up a broom or rake. Sticks still make him nervous, but he's stopped giving me that "please don't kill me" look for the most part.

      He's supposed to be a bird dog but is way too friendly. He'll chase cats, get them cornered, then drop to his belly to play with them.

      The only time he's ever shown any sort of aggression is when he thinks I'm in danger. My brother was scared of him for months because the first time he came to my house unannounced and walked in (as my whole family does with each other), Chachi lunged at him and kept him pinned to the wall until I came in and broke it up. He didn't hurt my bro, but made damn sure that he didn't make a move, and bro didn't, he just stood there sweating until I arrived.

      Now they cuddle whenever bro visits, but he still laughs about how vicious he thought my dog was at first. He's never harmed anyone, but he can look really mean if he wants to.

      P.S. I am not a crackpot.
