What can I say, I’m a handsome looking 4 year old … my foster Mum says I look like Yoda … so he must be very good looking if she says I look like him.
I’m a gentle giant and absolutely love to be patted by my human. In fact it would be a difficult job but I’m sure I could do it all day long if set the challenge. Given the chance I will bond with my owner almost immediately, especially if they’re kind, understanding and willing to give me some of their time, training and affection.
I’m not hugely into games of ball throwing or tug-of-war with my human but perhaps that’s because I really love my pats and, not only that, my foster brother is such a toy hog. I’ve only just started to play with him and I quite enjoy his company. In fact I’m good with both small and large dogs.
I don’t mind if you have a cat either as they really don’t bother me at all. If I’m allowed inside I’ve learnt to stay on my mat, but I also cope with being kept outside, as long as you spend lots of time with me.
I have learnt my human’s hand signals to sit and shake hands and she says I’m doing really well. Who said a dog can’t learn new tricks because I’ve also learnt to stay! I'm currently learning to lie down and I keep persisting with this because I really want to please my human.
I’m still learning to walk without pulling so much and given that I’m a big lad, I will need to have big people around me to help me with this. If you have older children in your family it will also be ok - I just don’t want to accidentally knock over little ones.
There have been so many changes in my young life that I tend to get a bit scared when I meet new people, or if approached the wrong way. So I'll need my new family to be patient with me and help with appropriate introductions. Precious Paws will be happy to offer advice regarding introductions.
