Dino is a submissive male and would be best placed with another dog. He
does enjoy being with other dogs and is well socialized with them. Dino
walks decently on a leash now, but is bothered by loud noises. He needs
obedience training and needs to learn his recall better. He also takes a
soft command since he is so sensitive. He could use some confidence
building through some positive reinforcement obedience training. Dino is a
typical male for this breed, as he is extremely affectionate and loyal--he
wants to bond tightly with his human. Dino can adapt to activity--it just
depends on what you ask of him. One minute he's out romping around, and
then the next he settles right down next to you. Dino is nervous, and will
pace a bit until he settles down. Because a lot of stimulus is hard on him,
a quieter household without small children would be best suited for him. He
would be well suited for an individual that goes to dog parks or likes to
exercise with a dog by your side. Dino rides very well in the car and gets
along well with other dogs. Dino would make a really nice canine companion
for the person who is willing to invest the time in him.
