Can not share a home with a cat but has been very helpful when it comes to socializing female dogs, he also has been around other dogs. He does well in public and has a keen eye for unwanted visitors! He doesn't do well contained in a kennel so he lives in our kitchen!! He really is a great hiking buddy and he has been around kids but he is uncertain of them. He is our longest resident and would realllllly love to find his new home!!
