Bama spent his whole life outside and had never had any vet treatment or regular meals until a Good Samaritan took him in. Due to his past, he is not especially needy, but he is affectionate and loving. He is easy to train as he is highly food motivated and he would love to learn new tricks. Due to his food deprivation in the past, Bama does not like to share resources with other animals. He is very strong and does seem to want to chase deer or animals in the woods, but otherwise he walks well on a leash. He seems to be afraid of the resident cat and has not tried to chase her. He will need an owner that is strong and stern. Bama is fine with other dogs, but he likes to play rough and may try to dominate other dogs so he would do best with another female that is more submissive. He does like exercise, but is happy to just hang out as well. Bama is not much of a barker either.
Bama would do best in a home with active adults and older children due to his size and strength. He loves people and would thrive as an only dog, although he would not mind having a submissive doggie companion that can handle his rough play style. Bama would also do well with a strong, consistent leader.
Bama had heartworm treatment at the end of January 2017.
