Enzo is a working breed dog who needs someone who will mentally stimulate him along with playing fetch or tug of war and go for walks. He needs activities that will build his confidence, such as scent work, barn hunt, agility classes for fun (will never be able to compete in agility due to hip dysplasia in both hips). There are times when he would like to just sit out in the back yard sunbathing but then there are days he run laps around yard.
Enzo is a mature dog who prefers not to be around dogs that are in your face. He doesn't do well with smaller dogs but when introduced properly he gets along with dogs his size or bigger. He can be food aggressive with other dogs, you can take his food away or pet him while he eats but if another dog comes too close he will react. A home with no cats would be best since he does like to chase them.
Enzo is skittish with strangers and takes time to warm up to others. Tends to warm up to women before men. He wants to please and works hard at his training.
He does well with children as long as they are not squeezing him and getting in his face, there are no children in the foster home but he's been around kids from ages 2-15. A low traffic household would be best. At the end of the day with lots of patience you will end up with a 47 pound lap dog once he warms up to you.
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all dogs before adoption. AVID Microchips are implanted between the dog's shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the dog is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Dogs MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our dogs back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted dog.
