I walk beautifully on a lead, but in saying that, I would need a home that can handle me as I can be strong when I want. I have had a fair amount of training from my previous home but there is always room for more growth. I am super smart and a lover of all yummy foods, so will pick up new things very quickly. I can be shy when meeting new people so I would love a quiet patient home that can read when I am not comfortable. I could live with an older settled male dog, but in saying this, I am used to having my own space. I am not suited to a home with small children, cats or any small animals. If you think you are the home for me contact the canine team for more information."
