Michael's pictures don't do him justice. He is absolutely STUNNING and a real CUDDLER! We think Michael's about 3 years old. He came into the shelter as a stray.
Michael's temperament: Attentive, Assertive, Confident, High-Energy, People-Centered, Serious, Willing-to-Work.
Per Our Professional Evaluator: In the kennel, Michael stood quietly at the front. When spoken to, he continued to stand quietly looking at you. On the leash, Michael is strong, and somewhat excited and eager. Off-lead, Michael ignored his handler and investigated his environment. When spoken to, he jumped all over his handler in an excited and friendly manner. When stroked, Michael became aroused and jumped all over his handler. Michael allowed his teeth to be examined without difficulty. During his body-handling test, Michael remained calm and relaxed throughout. When placed in a vet-tech hold, Michael showed no reaction. When his food bowl was taken away, Michael tried to continue eating, but did not show any signs of uneasiness or aggression. When startled by a sudden loud noise, Michael showed no reaction. Michael exhibits a nice level of play, and appears to be at least partially housebroken.
“VERY STRONG boy! Adopter must be able to manage him. Teach him not to jump on people. Likes to interact with people.”
Michael is waiting for his forever home at the Montgomery County Humane Society located at 14645 Rothgeb Drive in Rockville, MD. This is NOT a no-kill shelter, so if you think you might be interested in adopting Michael, please go visit him right away!
