SOME UPDATES from a volunteer whom does day trips with the dogs: Good - rides well in the car, great hiking buddy with nonstop energy, loves playing fetch with a toy, non-reactive to my dog (senior female) when close by on a leash, responds well to redirection and obviously treats. Only one accident in the house and lifted his leg on my wardrobe but stopped as soon as I yelled no! Bad - can be a bit “mouthy” when playing. He will flop on his back and grab your arm or hand in his mouth - nothing aggressive but can be a bit rough so he needs to be redirected. I just firmly said no or ouch! and redirected with a toy and he responded well. I was also careful to have him “give” the toy before throwing it for him. Overall he’s a sweet boy with a lot of spunk. Not the most outwardly affectionate but I think he could be, if given the chance to trust and create a bond with someone. He was resting his head on my shoulder on our car ride. HI! Scoter here. I am a young and wild child. No work or training was done with me before I arrive here as a stray. I am learning now though. I can be head shy and unsure one moment and then explode with energy the next I do jump sometimes but I am learning this is unmannerly and were working on it. I do know sit. I have learned to sit for being leashed and unleashed. Also for my food and treats. I like fetch but prefer keep away. I do not like most of the male dogs here. I have been with an older female dog and she and I were friends. I am working on meeting more dogs and doing fairly well. I walk okay on leash. I like to travel and do well in a car. I am a bit rough around the edges and a bit goofy but with a good owner, willing to work with me and teach me to be all I can be, I know I will make some one a great companion! As a bonus I am a handsome guy too!
