Meet Sue…yes, that’s right, A Boy Named Sue! He’s as sweet as can be and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. He immediately fit right in with his foster humans and two femaleBrittanys. They engage, play, and run in the yard chasing squirrels. Sue definitely has a very strong prey drive and will benefit from a large secure yard to explore, run and play. Don’t let his age fool you, he’s no “senior” in strength + activity. He will thrive with humans who get him out to run, hike, explore the great outdoors! He has been known to take off (again, prey drive), and pulls hard on a leash, so will require consistency in leash training. He likes to fetch and knows many commands: sit, down, roll over, shake, come, give, off, leave it! When he’s told to go lie down, he gets on the bed. When he’s told to get out of the kitchen, he goes to the rug and lies down. I’m pretty sure he just understands anything he’s asked to do and is eager to please. He’s house trained and uses the dog door.He expects to sleep in the bed with his humans, preferably under the covers!Sue is a happy, healthy, alert, energetic, inquisitive, friendly, loving boy. He loves pets, scratches, snuggles…definitely a love bug and enjoys being with his humans. He’s playful, yet mellow with his foster sisters, even rolling over on his back occasionally. He’s a strong 40lb boy of all muscle andpulls fiercely on a leash…he will benefit from consistent leash training. He is very interested in food and readily learned manners like waiting to go to his bowl, not begging and taking treats gently from hand. As much as he likes food, he is not aggressive or guarding in ANY way with anything, including food and toys. He’s just so fun and will really be a wonderful addition to a loving home willing to work with him on the leash.If you think A Boy Named Sue would be a match foryou, please fill out the adoption applicationandlet’s talk!
