Personality and additional information:
Tyler is a big golden full of energy that loves to play and be active. He will act out when bored by grabbing your favorite shoe or towel or sock to get attention. He is well behaved otherwise and a big lap-dog at heart, but will be the pack leader if you let him. Can be left alone in the home without worry. Like some, he does counter-surf if it smells good. Believe that some of his dog aggression will subside now that he is neutered. Recommend an experienced owner who knows how to handle a dominant personality dog.
