Lobo-with-an-e is a confident young fellow who is gradually settling into the life of a house dog.
Loboe is friendly with people and is receptive to affectionate stroking. He is learning that people use words and signals to communicate, not paws and mouths. His favorite sharing time, so far, seems to be going on walks and jogging, followed closely by playing with other dogs.
Loboe has met large and small, energetic and relaxed dogs appropriately but has not yet interracted with extremely dominant or tiny dogs. He knows doggie language quite well and will back-off if his play becomes too forceful and causes a yelp; he generally stays calm and does not react if growled or barked at. He can be slightly, non-aggressively, dominant at times but responds well to correction. He has not appeared to have an interest in cats so would probably be okay with a non-fleeing cat as a family member.
Loboe is fun to work with and is responding well to learning basic obedience commands, including sit and wait, and he is working on down and stay. He tugs a bit on leash but with encouragement he will sit and wait to be introduced when being approached by another dog. He rides comfortably in the car and is house broken. Although Loboe does not enjoy being confined, he is best crated or kenneled when left alone for any length of time.
Because Loboe seems to be a bit unsure of what children are, and because of his size and puppy nature, he could be too much dog for a household with young children.
The more space (at home or on frequent outings) and the more time Loboe's family will have for him, the better for this young explorer.
Loboe is a Level 2 GSD being fostered in Davis.
