Dex is an extremely friendly and social boy. He is rambunctious and still lacking his basic manners but he does great with people. He has been around a variety of people including children and has always been very friendly. Dex is a big people-pleaser and would make an amazing sport dog in the right hands. He is an energetic, athletic, and eager young boy. He is also sensitive though and needs a handler that understands you can't just bully a dog into everything. With the proper reinforcements Dex is willing to take on the world for his people.
Dex loves other dogs! How much they love him could be debated as he doesn't have a lot of social manners but he loves to play. He is already a very large dog but it doesn't look like anyone explained that to him so he can be a bit rough when he plays. He has some very tolerant friends and learned to avoid some less tolerant ones. Although very rough and tumble Dex truly enjoys other dogs and would do great in a home with another energetic and playful dog.
Dex is a very energetic and intense dog. He is going to require a job to keep his mind and body focused and prevent any bad habits. Dex would excel in dog sports or even just advanced obedience (once he conquers basic of course). Regardless of the job he is given Dex will require plenty of productive energy outlets as his off button has not been fine tuned. Dex is searching for a home that will provide him with training, exercise, and adventure.
