Mustang is a super cute kid! He loves to play with other dogs and loves his people, but that's about it. In true herder fashion, he attaches to one person and becomes anxious of everyone else. He really struggles with strangers, and can sometimes guard against other family members, but the guarding is easily remedied with clear rules and structure. He will need at least a little one-on-one attention a day, whether this is a session of tug or a structured walk to help him exert mental energy.
Mustang does good with management. This means not setting him up to fail. He does really well with people who follow "the rules" with him. Mustang would do exceptionally well in a home with adults who don't have a many visitors and who are familiar with herding breeds. Continued training is not needed, but new owners will need to be made aware of his limitations and be comfortable with them. He would not be a good candidate for anywhere he has free access to strangers, although he is good off-leash. Mustang does not need a lot of physical exercise, but does need appropriate mental stimulatation.
Mustang should be an easy dog for the right household, but his previous owner just had too many visitors and was being forced to choose between her dog and her social life, so she made the right decision for both of them.
