ONYX is the stone of endurance, and that's exactly what this pup has been doing - enduring! He has a long, sad history of being failed by multiple owners, shelters, and rescues. Being both behaviorally as well as physically devoid of what he needed, Onyx has made a total 180 and is doing great. But he won't be THRIVING until he finds his FOREVER HOME that will give him all the time and attention that he deserves! Success won't happen, until he is HOME FOR GOOD! Onyx has been in training and has specific behavioral needs that potential adopters should continue with. He is truly a wonderful dog and will really make someone an amazing companion. Here's his wonderful attributes:
- Neutered, UTD on vax, recent full lab workups, and entropion surgery already taken care of.
- He's young! At about only 2 years old.
- Weighs about 75lbs.
- Does not care about seeing other dogs on walks, however he does not want to share his home with other dogs. We MIGHT consider an appropriate female housemate in an experienced home.
- Loves adults. We have no history of him being around young children so we will place him only with adults.
- Crate trained and can 'hold it' for long work hours.
- Loves keeping himself occupied with his toys and bones inside the house or running around with sticks outside of the house.
- Does not chew or destroy bedding. He takes care of his beds.
- Can go for long walks but can just as easily be a couch potato.
- Loves the water!
- Enjoys the car and rides well in it!
- Super smart!
- Very quiet, only barks at strangers directly outside the front door/windows.
- Knows his name, hand targeting, sit, down, wait, go to crate, and walks great on the leash.
- Looking for a home anywhere in south Florida.
- Comes with a lifetime of free training support!
