Seamus is a sweet, goofy 2-year-old DDB boy that craves attention and always prefers to be close to his people. He is a big boy that is not aware of his size or strength and will gladly try to climb in your lap! While he has short bursts of playful energy, in general he is happy to lay at your feet or, even better, snuggle on the couch!
Likes: Attention, Belly rubs, being with his people, exploring the yard, patrolling the fence line. ***ADULT ONLY HOME
Dislikes: Being alone and being crated
Personality : Goofy & sweet with short bursts of playful energy
Temperament: Takes meds with no issues, lets you handle him everywhere (no issues with nail clipping, cleaning ears or grooming) he did well at the vet, is strong and will pull if he wants to get somewhere
Energy level: generally calm and happy to lay with his people
Favorite activities : being with his people & strolling around the yard
Good with cats, dogs, and kids over 6?: Cats - NO; No male dogs; No children due to size, history of mouthiness when excited
Not good with : Seamus is a bit shy around men, takes longer to warm up to them, needs slow introductions
Crate trained: Will go in crate for a treat but is good at escaping. He is not destructive when left alone.
Challenges: Seamus has a previous bite history when he was approached by someone who walked into his house. Although he has yet to show this type of demeanor in his foster home, we believe he may be protective of his home once comfortable. Accordingly, he may not be accepting of visitors to his home. When excited and wanting to play, Seamus does jump and get mouthy. He needs work on basic manners (no jumping/mouthing, pulling on leash), but is very food motivated and eager to please. He is extremely strong when he pulls on leash. Seamus LOVES food and will seek it out if left on a counter/table.
Any Medical issues? Seamus tested positive for Lyme Disease and is being treated with antibiotics.
What would be the best kind of home? Seamus would do best in a calm home with few visitors and no children. He would love to find a home where someone is home with him most of the day. He also needs a home committed to working on his manners and continued training.
Fostered in Fairborn, OH.
