My Perfect Match:

-Is willing to take a few trips to WAG to get to know me before taking me home.

-Will continue with my training, using a WAG approved positive reinforcement trainer. I can be reactive with other dogs when on leash.

-Has lots of patience and understanding. My life has been bumpy and I need someone who is willing to be in it for the long haul.

-Loves to lead an active life - I have lots of energy! I may never be able to attend dog parks or be off leash in public areas as I do not get along with all other dogs, so you will have to be able to take me to quieter hikes and trails.

- Is cool with me spending lots of time napping in the house, I love a cozy bed or couch and don't mind napping till you're home from work!

-Is strong! I am a big, muscular boy.

-Is pro-muzzle. I need to wear one in public to keep me and everyone safe.

-Will love me forever no matter what!!

About Me:

I love to run and play with my friends, learn new tricks, and snuggle with my favourite people. I prefer walks in the woods, and would rather not go to busy dog parks.

I have been bounced around a lot and I'm looking for some consistency so I can relax.

I am a strong boy, but with the right equipment - a Freedom harness and lots of tasty treats - I will walk with a loose leash and give you my full attention amid distractions.

I am extremely friendly with people and love nothing more than meeting new humans who will play with me and give me endless cuddles!

I do not get along with all dogs and can be strong! My new family will have to learn how to manage me and those situations.

My Story:

I was returned to WAG after my previous home could no longer care for me. I am very sad to be homeless again but can't wait to find a home of my own that will continue with my training and love me no matter what! I am such a loving boy and really deserve the best!
