In his previous home, he may not have been required to have manners, but his foster mom says they are working on that together. He is much like a bull in a China shop for a small tornado going through the house at times and sometimes lacks impulse control. He’s so happy, that they are battling happy tail which means that your legs and items within its reach know exactly how happy he is. He is not good with free roaming at the moment because he does like to counter surf and explore the contents of the trash can. They are also working on leash and crate training together because he doesn’t seem too fond of either one. His training is progressing nicely due to him being very food motivated and eager to please. He knows how to sit, and he is housebroken.
He LOVES his Kong stuffed with peanut butter. It is his favorite thing that he is often carrying around with him. He also enjoys chewing on a nice shin bone from time to time, but hasn’t shown much interest in dog toys as of yet. He is gets along nicely with other giant dogs both male and female, but hasn’t been tested with small dogs or cats just yet. We recommend a home without small children not because of his temperament, but because of his size and current lack of manners. We believe that with time and positive reinforcement training, he will be an even more amazing dog than he already is. He is already making huge strides with his training, and he hasn’t even been with us that long. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We highly recommend that our potential adopters fill out an online application as soon as possible, as it greatly expedites the process of finding the right dog for your situation. The adoption app is available on our website (www.bullpenrescue.org) under the 'work with us' tab. If you choose not to fill out an application before inquiring about a particular dog, please briefly tell us about yourself, family, and lifestyle since this will help us determine if the dog you’re interested in is a good match.
Our dogs are available for adoption nationwide but preference is given to adopters willing to do an in-person meeting. Please understand that our dogs are not adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but rather we strive for a “perfect placement” so we know that they will not be failed again.
