Dante is an 8 month old labrador and rottweiler mix (we think). He’s friendly, eager to please, and a quick learner! For example, he learned the basics of “stay” within an hour and “shake” in 10 minutes. He is still working on his loose leash-walking, but he seems to be getting the hang of it.
Despite him otherwise being my dream dog, at the advice of our dog trainer we came to the conclusion that he may have a more fulfilling life with another family. Despite my attempts to keep him exercised and entertained, he has a lot of energy! Unfortunately this manifests in being a little too rowdy with my cats (playful, not predatory). That said, he may do better with cats that actually have a firm paw. He mostly ignores my chickens but occasionally wants to chase them when the zoomies hit. He could potentially benefit from a playmate – my other dog is a little too low-energy for that. I think he has not had much exposure with children and seems a little too interested when walking by a school, so that is something to keep in mind.
He has his rabies vaccine but the other vaccines are a work in progress and he will be cleared by the end of October. I was planning on neutering him post-puberty so his hormones had a chance to circulate and prevent future health issues, but apparently this may not be necessary in this kind of mix.
I am looking for someone with an active lifestyle and positive reinforcement experience that can continue working with Dante and give him the fulfilling life I wish I could provide for him.
