Knox in North Carolina
I’m about 1 ½ years old and I’m very playful. I’d really like to have a young dog to play with that doesn’t mind if I’m the dominant one. I’m not very good with cats, small children or older/frail dogs – I just have too much energy and like to be top dog. I probably should have an experienced dog owner that can keep me in line so I don’t get in trouble (I’ve been told I’m a typical young GSP…it’s not my fault).
I love toys and I can’t help it, I must destroy them. I’m working on responding to my name but it just doesn’t sound right to me so my new family might want to change it to something I do respond to. I love people so much I sometimes jump on them when they come home because I’m so excited to see them – I need work on that as well. I also nibble your hand when I get excited (or a toy if you put it in my mouth).
Until I’ve learned some more rules I should probably be crated when you’re not home so I don’t get in trouble. I’m really driven by food so I learn quickly, but when I’m in hunt mode and a squirrel is around then I really don’t care about food anymore. I’m house trained though and I’ve been told that’s a really good thing.
I’m really athletic and need a large fenced yard and maybe an e-fence also since I tend to dig to see what’s on the other side. I definitely can’t be left alone for too long in the yard or I get in trouble. Once I’m not in hunt mode I chill out really well. I’m sweet, calm and like to snuggle…a lot.
My foster Dad says I’m a smart boy working on kicking a couple bad habits, but with the right family I’ll thrive and make someone very happy.
If you’re interested in meeting me, please complete and adoption application (if you haven’t already) and email my foster dad Santiago.
