WOW! Don't miss out on this fella! No puppy pains here! This 1 year old boy is HOUSETRAINED, knows basic commands (sit, stay, get in your bed, lay down, and we are working on shake!), crate trained, does great in the car, doesn't chew or destroy furniture, is a champ at bath time, does a good job at the vet... what more could you want?! Then add all of this and you've found a wonderful friend: Tony is well behaved in the house, he's fun to be around, he can be left alone and trusted while youre gone, he's affectionate, sweet, smart, adorable, and obedient. Tony is the BEST!
About this baby:
Tony is SO CUDDLY and BEAUTIFUL! And those eyes--they're like a tiger! I know it doesn't necessarily look like it in pictures, but I cannot describe how SOFT and FLUFFY this boy's coat is... It's like a little cloud of heaven even though he is a short-haired dog. He is so cuddly that it is almost therapeutic to be around this sweet guy. This big boy loves to give kisses and I think he would simply smother you with love if he could.
Extremely affectionate, this boy is definitely a people-oriented dog, though he loves to be around other dogs too. He is an extremely happy dog, always excited to see and greet you! And, just FYI, there is NOTHING cuter than seeing this boy with his toys--he constantly walks around with his favorites and wants you to chase him. This big boy is super calm inside, and when he is outside LOVES to swim if there is a pool or a pond around! He is definitely a water puppy! This big guy also does a good job of sleeping by your bed, waiting patiently until morning. And he is not a "barky" dog.
About this baby's History:
He was found in a subdivision, abandoned, in Texas. Everyone that met him loved him and he was taken in by a number of families while they searched for his owners, until finally he was taken on by the EKC Rescue. Tony has spent the last month in foster care, ensuring he has a clean bill of health, and learning as much as we can about him so we can place him in the perfect home!
About this baby's ideal home:
This fella is great with other dogs. He does well with both smaller and larger breeds. But when introducing him to new dogs at home, its important to do the process slowly as he has given some warning growls to some dogs before. He is strongly expected to do well with cats but he has never officially been around one. It is a possibility that he will jump on smaller children, so plan to put in some training if you have young ones. BUT I believe he will do very well with children invading his space (as they can often do) like pulling or tugging on him. Tony can get a little excited whenever voices are raised or whenever he sees his humans, so he would ideally have a calm mom or dad that can be patient and guide him in the right direction until he calms down. Because of this angel's size, he would do perfect with a family that wouldn't mind have a big beautiful boy running around...but it is definitely something to consider if you have elderly or very young children. Though he has only ever jumped up on someone once, he may need some more guidance in that area. He really is so sweet, calm, quiet whenever he is inside that you forget he's not a little dog!
About this baby's health:
This angel is heartworm NEGATIVE. Tony is neutered, up to date on shots, free of all intestinal parasites, and currently taking preventive heartworm and flea and tick. He is ready to go!
