Renato is just a big creampuff at about three years old. Renato is looking for a firm, calm, confident, consistent leader to broaden his understanding that most people are really ok to just hang out with and have fun. Renato is house trained, crate trained, walks great on a leash, rides great in a car, knows “heel”, “here”, “sit” and “down”. This sweet guy weighs about 75 pounds but looks heavier due to his fluffiness. He loves his regular brushing. He’s fairly calm and laid back. Renato won't make a good running buddy. Unfortunately he didn’t spend much time with people until he came into the rescue so he’s unsure of people he hasn’t met and views many with distrust. Ignore him and respect his space then he becomes curious and investigates. It usually takes him some time to believe you’re trustworthy but within a couple of hours, he’ll be your best friend. Generally, he prefers females over males. Males may take a little longer to gain his trust. Currently Renato lives with two foster canines and his trainer/foster has had him around hundreds of dogs with no issues but they’ve all respected his space. He has been around small dogs on his leash but we wouldn’t immediately presume he’d be ok with them without more supervised interaction. He does fine around children who are calm and respectful of his space. Could you be the pack leader he's been looking for?
