Story
Bandit is a great dog, he is very kind and loves people. He is good with kids and other dogs, doesn't mind cats or bother them. When he was little, we tried a little bit to housebreak him but had issues with him marking his territory in the house.(we had other male dogs at the time). He became an outside dog after that and we have not tried since. I think he could learn to potty outside, especially if he is the only male dog and didn't feel the need to mark his territory. He will sleep in the house in a kennel just fine, and will hang out with you as well. We just didn't leave him loose in the house. My son is getting a diabetic service dog this week and the trainer says that it would be best if he was the only male dog in the home so that he can focus on working with my son. Bandit needs and deserves a good home where he will be loved and cared for. He is a great dog and really loves attention and would be a great companion for someone. I wouldn't let the housebroken part dissuade you
