Halo has a bite history with strangers who have approached him too fast and enthusiastically. He can be fearful of strangers. However, when introduced to new people in a calm way, he is gentle and receptive. He has mild energy and doesn’t need much exercise. He barks at normal dog things like workmen in the yard next door. When he warms up to people he gets along well with them.
Halo loves the two other dogs in his foster home and often initiates play with them. He loves to run in the yard and play fetch too. Halo loves to cuddle on the couch but is most often found sleeping in his foster’s bedroom. He is low maintenance and easy going.
He is so eager to please! He’s house-trained, sits up very straight before his meals, can shake on command and also drop on command. Halo is walking well on a leash but should be muzzled. He shows aggression towards other dogs on leash and shouldn’t be taken to off leash parks. For this reason, he needs an experienced, patient owner who knows body language and can monitor him for signs of distress.
Halo is a truly beautiful boy who shows so much promise and we believe
that under that remaining fear and defensiveness there is such a good
boy longing for the chance at a loving forever home.
