Angus is the most loving young dog who would love to be in the company of someone who works from home or is dedicated to working with a behaviorist to resolve his separation anxiety.  He is not crate trained (HATES the crate) and he has currently been working with experts on exercises that will help him lesson his anxiety when confined and alone.  Currently he cries, howls, and whines at the door and scratches the doors, causing damage.  Angus is housetrained and will bark at the door to be let out.  He just loves, loves, LOVES his people, kids, all dogs, & cats with no instinct to chase anything.  Angus truly just wants to be with his people at all times and is the happiest dog ever.  Although he loves kids and dogs of all sizes- he is very clumsy and often forgets how large he is so a home with large dogs and larger children would be ideal!  For such a young and large dog, he walks very well on a leash- until he sees his people and he must get pets, he will take you on a ride.  Angus is going to make some family and household very happy! 

Likes: PEOPLE, kids, cats, dogs, car rides, squeaky toys, balls, treats, XXXL dog beds

Dislikes: Being left alone, crates

Personality: Goofy, laid-back, low energy with a spurt of uncoordinated zoomies a few times a day.  Happy, curious, and food driven.   

Temperament: Angus takes his meds like a treat, allows his ears to be cleaned with no problem, sits when I pick up the leash, and is a complete gentleman at the vets office!  He could work on his personal space when it comes to dogs who do not like to play all the time.  He does have a scary bark when people approach the car but once you open the door he is all wiggles.  

Energy level: He likes to play with other dogs, go on long walks, but will also spend most of the day lounging on the floor/dog bed.

Favorite activities: Playing with other dogs & playing fetch!  Needs to work on his dropping the ball skill!

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Yes

Not good with: loud and quick movements startle him easily; confinement (does not tolerate being enclosed in a crate or a room); being alone.

Housetrained: Yes 

Crate trained: Do not crate.

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? He loves to stay by his people but can get curious enough to wander.  Physical fence is not necessary but would be helpful! Angus is not a candidate for an invisible/under-ground fence.

Walks well on a leash? For the most part!  Will pull when he is excited to see someone.

Challenges: Angus really struggles with his separation anxiety.  He needs a dedicated owner that is willing to work towards resolving his issues with a behaviorist.  He is very stressed when being left alone and will cause damage.

Any Medical issues? None.  Prescribed an anti-anxiety for the separation anxiety.

What would be the best kind of home? Angus must live with another large dog in the home.  Ideally Angus would like a home where at least someone is home with him throughout the day, where he is not left alone for long periods of time, and has a comfortable house/yard to romp around in.
