Are you looking for a big lov-a-bull to share your life with?  Are you an experienced owner who loves training? Then you just have to meet  our ador-a-bull adopt-a-bull Puck! 

Puck is still a puppy and he is ready for hours of fun!   Our vet anticipates he will be a very large gentleman, around 100+lbs. His foster family reports that he is a really great dog, and he is fully housebroken and crate trained.   When he was picked up from the shelter he was hand shy, but his past is behind him now. He has come out of his shell and is now an eager social butterfly looking to meet all the new people he can. 

Puck is also a playful boy, and he’s great with other dogs in his foster home, as well as children.  Because of Puck’s high energy level, it’s best if children in the home are older and dog savvy.

While Puck is doing well with his canine foster siblings, he is currently learning how to greet new canine friends politely. He does have a lot of work to do with new situations and we are having him seek the guidance of a trainer to reach his full potential.  Puck often has a less than favorable response in some new situations and needs a strong handler and clear direction to modify his behavior. Once he knows what you are asking of him he is able to make better choices, which must be reinforced consistently to ensure he continues to be a well behaved gentleman.   

 

Puck is a smart boy who enjoys obedience training and has already mastered “sit", "in” like into his crate, "touch", and "wait". The fact that he is very food motivated and has a very intense desire to please you makes training a breeze! Due to his anticipated size, it is very important that Puck’s training be continued. He needs an experienced, calm and assertive owner who will be consistent with his training and be able to fulfill his activity needs, as he is very active and requires daily mental and physical exercise to thrive. 

 

Puck is still learning that riding in cars can be fun. His new family should be patient with him and provide him with opportunities to have fun car rides to help him become more comfortable riding in the car. His foster family notes that his preference is to be able to ride low in the car, and that he tends to do better when he cannot see everything happening outside.

This handsome guy does like to chase anything that moves including squirrels, snow, and cars, which means that he must always be on leash when playing outside and he would really love a fenced in yard to play with his family in. His foster family is currently working on getting him to sit when cars approach, and to remain calm and not try to chase it.   Due to his knack for training and his energy level he could excel at fetch. He would also be a great hiking or running buddy. He will need an active family that will continue his socialization and training to form him into a breed ambassador. 

 

If you love dogs like family, have experience with the breed, enjoy dedicating time to training & exercise daily, want a dog you can work with, bond with, and show off your training efforts of forming a true breed ambassador... Puck sounds like your pup. Submit an application to adopt him today!
