High energy. Recommend kids age 10 years and up who are gentle and respectful due to size, strength and tolerance to ungranted permission to touch. Initially more exit orientated than anything else. Tried hard to dig out of the concrete kennel. Took a few days to acknowledge the handler with a mutual visual greet. Then eager to exit, pulls hard on leash throughout. Moderately social, moderately tolerant to handling. Will try to toss off your head pats at first. Rather dismissive and suggestive of annoyance. Same with initial body touches. Finally allowed it with some tolerance after an effort was made to make the touch more pleasurable (i.e. butt scratches, behind the ear scratches). Toys were mostly ignored until the handler bounced a tennis ball. Quick to catch on the rebound. Repeatedly bounded and snatched the ball out of the air. Treat motivated! Fully engaged if the treats were good. Knows sit, down and shake. Needs an experienced leadership home with rules dedicated to training and exercise, in addition to a physically strong handler.Dog to dog: Initially cautiously and respectfully approached a mature large female of rank. Looked away, stepped around. More amenable to a respectful exchange with a mature medium sized neutered male dog. Second day: Eager to trash talk with dogs. show less

Social, mostly tolerant adolescent who prefers people to toys unless it is a game to be played together perhaps. Pulls a bit erratically on leash sometimes. A little jumpy when anxious. Mostly tolerant for handling, leans in for pets and was glad to settle on the blanket beside the handler`s feet while she did paperwork. Treat motivated if she is calmer and they are yummy enough. Knows sit. Needs an experienced patient leadership home with rules dedicated to training, exercise and dog socialization.Dog to dog: Nervous and inexperienced with proper dog diplomacy. Met a mellow medium sized respectful dog savvy male with pilo and some trash talk. When he ignored her silliness she gradually became more comfortable and was able to coexist though still wary at times. With occasional youthful spaziness. Across the interaction yard at some distance she saw a large confident but benign male dog watching her. It unnerved her so much that she would not go to that end of the yard and she grumble/whined in disquiet. When passing through the barking dogs in the kennels she fed off their drama and did some feints at their kennel fronts. All of this is fear based over compensation that needs to be worked with by first channeling some energy with exercise and obedience work. Then encouraging gradual safe encounters with non reactive well mannered dogs of known dog skills and praising civil behavior. Many dogs will find her rude so seek the tolerant dogs to work with. show less
