Adoption Fee: $350
Tavo is a handsome, solid 8-year old black sable boy whose family could no longer care for him, so he’s looking for new digs.
Tavo has had obedience training, but would benefit from a refresher course. Because he loves to play with toys they could be used as an excellent training tool. He is responsive to simple corrections and has great focus on his human.
He is a wonderful, loving, dedicated companion, and is happy being near his humans, but is quite independent. He enjoys walks and rides in the car (although he is very vocal on car rides). While truly a “bull in a China shop,” he is a fairly well-mannered, non-destructive gentleman, who will make a great addition to the right home.
Tavo has spent most of his time outside in a kennel, but has adjusted nicely to being a house dog! Who wouldn’t! He sleeps comfortably all night in his crate, and has settled down in his foster home.
He will take treats gently most of the time, but might try to snitch one from your hand! We’re working on correcting this behavior, and he is learning very fast, as he only wants to please his handler, but caution is a must.
Tavo has not been socialized much with other animals, so he might do best as an “only dog.” He requires a home without cats or other small animals, and because of his size, only an adult home will be given consideration.
Tavo is a great dog looking for his forever family. He needs people who are willing to devote time to forming a strong, lasting, trust-based bond, offer him a safe, loving environment, and provide ongoing obedience training, based upon positive reinforcement. He is a lot of dog, and only high level experienced adopters who can provide strong leadership and proper management of working breed behavior will be considered. Tavo must be given daily exercise and mental stimulation to expend his energy. He is not an average pet. Are you game??
