Did I mention I love to play? My dog friends need to be able to hold their own when I want to play so much that I don’t catch their cues to leave them alone. I want to play and play and play and sometimes get on other dog’s nerves. A strong dog who will patiently teach me to honor their cues would be really good for me. If another dog is impatient with me, we could have a little trouble being friends. I am only 1 year old so still have some puppy energy but it’s not over the top. If I have a forever dog friend, they will have to be ok with playing. A lot!
I think I like children. Especially if they like kisses and PLAYING. I’m a big boy so my playing may be a little too much (energy and weight) for really little children. The small children I have been around (only for a few minutes at a time and with a lot of supervision) were really fun and I liked them. Older children who know how to handle big dogs would be better. I don’t know what it is like to live with cats or really small dogs. I think I might be too much for them because I want to PLAY more than they might enjoy.
If you are leaving the house and put me in a crate – I might cry (and bark) for a little while. But I will eventually settle down and nap until you come back. I’ll be rested and ready to play when you get home! I’m not afraid of my crate. I go in there at meal times and for special treats (chew bones!!) without complaint – and at night, I know it’s time to go in there to sleep. I think I just want to go with you when you leave (I’m REALLY GOOD in the car!) so I make a lot of noise to get you to come back and take me with you. But I do eventually chill out. I should warn you not to leave me outside by myself for a long time. I find interesting ways to entertain myself when I’m bored.
If you want a friend who would love to go everywhere with you, is polite in public, is great meeting strangers, loves people, and LOVES TO PLAY – I am your boy! Be prepared for people to stop you and talk about me, I’m exceptionally striking to look at and people will remember me after they see me just once!
