Sport – gorgeous and intelligent, very active, a fantastic dog with a bit more training!

3 years – very active – needs lots of exercise – gorgeous  – very smart – NO CATS, NO KIDS, NO APARTMENT for this lovely boy

Sport is a very smart, stunning dog with high energy needs and even problem-solving needs, because he’s so smart! With the right owner, who will give him a bit of training and good boundaries, lots of exercise and stimulation, he will develop fully into an outstanding dog, just wonderful. Our boy Sport never got the training he should have had as a puppy, so now he is a bit of a wild child, but a very nice one and he just needs the right human and home!

Sport is good with other dogs. He has some manageable separation anxiety (calms down with a bone or kong in a crate) and if he had a brother/sister dog, similar in age or activity level, that would also help! And help with his whole development. He knows some commands and is learning to focus and control his energy, so he would learn from another dog how to do that. And ideally, a buddy whom he could play with in a secure yard and inside in the winter would be great. But Sport would also likely love to be one and only so he can have his very own person and receive the one-on-one attention he deserves and needs. He is a VERY high energy guy, needs lots of exercise, and needs all the basic training he never got as a puppy. He will need someone willing to take him to classes or do lots of one-on-one training with him right off the bat.

He pulls on leash. Off leash is a much better idea. Walks on leash could come in time, but this guy NEEDS TO RUN AND BURN OFF HIS ENERGY.  He would likely learn frisbee, but he needs training and focus before he could handle it. He would be an excellent agility dog. Sport is looking for a loving patient owner, willing to teach him how to be a good boy and willing to exercise him like crazy. He needs a home with a very secure yard, since he loves to explore and once he starts running he runs like the wind and he has a deep voice.  He’s not a guy to let him be bored or go without exercise.

This boy is very smart, very active, wants to please and loves to snuggle at night when he’s had his activities and exercise. He’s ready for some training and lots of exercise and boundaries and adventure. Is he the right boy for you? He is so ready to start his new and perfect life! — Thank you for your interest in a Minpinerie Rescue Group dog. We are based in the Ottawa area.
