Delaware is good on a leash, but needs reminders when he gets excited to see something up ahead, but he responds well to corrections. He is good with the other medium to large dogs, and enjoys playing in the yard with other big dogs at his foster home. Delaware has pretty pronounced prey drive, however, so he would likely do best in a home without small dogs or cats, rabbits, or other little animals. Delware does well with people once he gets comfortable with them, but when greeting them at first he can be defensive/reactive, so should go to a home that has the physical space and the handling competence to manage that.
Del does well with children, however he can be an energetic guy when playing and could knock over small children with his exuberance, so he would be better with children over the age of about 12 or 13. He enjoys riding in the car and will run up to the car, and then sit to let you know that he would like to go for a ride. He could use a bit more training, but this guy who learns quickly and works hard for treats, so he would gain more skills quickly. Delaware is crate trained, and knows some basic commands like sit and shake. Del is young and fit, so he would benefit from a daily round of exercise like jogging or long walks, or having a dog buddy to play with regularly. Del’s new home should plan to continue socializing him and to give him lots of love. He is a handsome, intelligent, sweet loving guy who would be a great addition to any home.
