My name is***** Thank you for the question. Unfortunately this is not a question with an easy answer. There actually be nothing we can do at all to help him not be afraid of strangers. When an animal is not properly socialized at the right age, it becomes instinctual for them to run from unknown, fearful situations or to act out in an aggressive way. How long have you had Tuxedo?
