Are you looking for a big lov-a-bull to share your life with?  Are you an experienced owner who loves working on 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!   He is about 75 lbs and will maybe fill out a little more.   His foster family reports that he is a really great dog, and he is fully housebroken and crate trained.  He doesnt jump up on the counters either , yay! 
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 submissive dogs in his foster home, as well as dog savy children (aged 7/9).  
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 passive canine foster siblings, he can be a bit of a bulldozer and not accept cues from other dogs they are done playing.  The dogs he is fostered with are 12 years old, and not really wanting to play 24/7   365 and he just cannot understand why.   I am not 100% that he needs to be an only dog but most dogs passive enough to be his canine pal might not want the 100% fun he is into. 

He is also currently still working on greeting new canine friends politely he needs a strong handler and clear direction to control his behavior. He knows the leave it command to ignore the cat when we go out for walks and ignore other dogs on a walk/run.   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".  He walks at a heel and sits when you come to a stop.  His foster mom has worked with training with him a lot.   He passed his canine good citizen test and will be doing the advanced class at the next offering.   
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 does great in the car is calm and comfortable.  Also does well for bath time and nail trims and great at the vet as well.   He recently had to have a bilateral knee replacement TPLO surgery and is about halfway through the healing process - he should come off exercise restriction mid March 2020

This handsome guy does like to chase anything that moves including squirrels, snow, and kitties, 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.

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!
