Dante fostered in a home with 2 teenage sisters and 3 other big dogs. He is rotated out separately with the other dogs put up but one female. He enjoys playing in the backyard that is enclosed by a privacy fence. He either sleeps in his kennel or sleeps with the 15 year old in the bed. He walks well on a leash and doesn't pull. He will wait for you if he gets too far ahead.
Dante is a little unsure in new situations but he warms up quickly. Once he gets to know you, he is a fun-loving and happy boy with a typical puppy personality. Foster parents are working on teaching him to be a well behaved family companion.
While Dante loves doing butt runs through the house and backyard, he is also quite content to just lay on the couch and watch TV or find a bone and chill out on the floor. Dante does have some separation anxiety but he is improving. He is also scared of thunderstorms. His foster home is working on ways to help him cope with both fears.
Behavior with people:
Dante is still a little unsure of new people and will stay by his foster mom's side until he knows he is okay. Once he warms up, it is all kisses and tail wags!
Behavior with children:
Dante hasn't been around small children, just teenagers. He would be best with teenagers since he is still learning to not jump-up on people. He is still a little puppy-mouthy and sometimes gives rough kisses. We're working on it.
Behavior with other dogs:
Dante has slowly been introduced to the other 3 dogs in the house, over a few weeks. He doesn't do too well with the male in the house. He is okay with the other 2 females though. The interaction is still new so he is only allowed to be with one of them at a time and always supervised. We think he could live in a home with a compatible female, if the owners are breed savvy. He would do great as an only pet as well.
Behavior with other animals:
When Dante was picked up from local pound they said he was a No with cats. He has shown no interests in squirrels or birds in the backyard at this time.
Dante knows "sit" and is learning "kennel." He is fed in his kennel so he is learning the word "kennel" with treats and being fed. He is almost potty trained. He has had a few accidents if he is left in his kennel for more than 6 hours.
According to his foster family, his best trait is definitely his loyalty! He just wants to be by your side and please you. If he disappoints you, his eyes will break your heart. His eyes tell you exactly how he feels. He's a real sweetheart...
