When you are handsome you are handsome and our boy, Kato, at 3 years old, is just that! Kato likes tug of war and playing fetch and sticks...and the bigger the better.
He enjoys car rides and long walks and more than anything snuggling with his humans. Kato would love a fur sibling to play with who can match is his lab energy but being a single dog is just fine. He would prefer his people to himself anyway. Kato has done well with cats but an introduction is always necessary.
Kato has been moved around a bit so a new owner who understands that time and consistent training are key for his success. Like many breeds, if he's bored he'll find something to keep him busy. A tired dog is a happy and well behaved dog! He loves his crate and it is a great quiet place for him to mellow out.
Kato is sensitive to some sounds and would do best with kids over 10. He's a big dog so sometimes his excitement gets the best of him so we want to make sure that kids are big enough to be ok if knocked over in his exuberance for play.
If you would like to meet Kato please complete the application at www.azpawsandclaws.com and we can arrange a meet and greet. Thank you for rescuing.
