Very much a puppy Needs a strong leader Resource guarding ~ has learned ‘drop it’ Very energetic Hi everyone…my name is Donald and I’m a one-year-old puppy. I say ‘puppy’ because I still have that puppy energy and joie de vivre. Everything excites me because the world is an exciting place. I love people and other dogs but sometimes I get too excited and jump up on people and jump around other dogs because I want to play so I can be a bit much. Now, I have been going to school to learn your human ways and I’m told I’m doing really well, but am, as you say, a work-in-progress. Hey, I’m still a pup, so if you love life like I do and are active like I am, then maybe I’m your boy. I do have a thing called ‘resource guarding’ but I have learned the ‘drop it’ command, but you need to be a strong leader (and I respond better to men) as I will certainly test you. Mush-balls need not apply (heehee)! I respond to the ‘drop it’ command outside on my walks but inside I still steal items and guard them, so my training will have to continue. I am not bad on the leash until I see a critter or another dog, then all bets are off so you need to hang on during those situations. I am not a big barker. You can touch me anywhere. I love my car rides and walks and the doc says I’m a healthy boy. GR says for now I’d be better in a home with no small children, no other dogs, and definitely no cats, until I get out of my puppy enthusiasm stage. My amazing foster family describes me as a sweet, goofy, loving boy. Well, I think they are sweet, goofy, and loving as well (heehee). Donald is currently being fostered in the North Toronto, ON area.
