Are you looking for a best friend? Optimus could be just who you're looking for. While enjoying and being friendly with everyone in the house, Optimus has a tendency to attach to one person as his “favorite”. He loves following you around the house and will even patiently wait outside the bathroom door for you.
Optimus is a handsome, energetic dog who loves going on long walks through the neighborhood. With his energy and athletic build, he would make a great running partner. He is also perfectly content spending time inside laying on his bed chewing on a Kong or a Nyla bone or just hanging out on the couch with you watching a movie.
Optimus has very good house manners and if needed, a simple stern “no” will serve as a reminder to him. This young man really wants to please you.
He is housebroken, crate trained and loves riding in the car.
Optimus knows his basic commands sit, down, stay and wait. He has not been to a basic obedience class yet, but we believe that this intelligent dog will excel in training class and his new found skills will bolster his self esteem.
Optimus needs to be the only dog in the home and is also not good with cats.
All this sweet, smart and happy dog needs is a family of his own. Optimus has been through a lot in his young life and will need time to adjust to new surroundings and built up trust. He is timid when confronted with new situations and will need a patient and caring owner who will give him all the time he needs. Optimus will do best in a home that has structure, he would be successful in an active home with a strict routine that he can rely on.
Optimus is very affectionate and would make a great partner for life's adventures.
