Red was originally thought to be a Mastiff but we've learned he's an absolute mix of everything - 19 breeds in fact!  You could say Red should be called RED, WHITE & BLUE.

Likes: Red enjoys chew toys, all people, meal time and snacks, and lounging.

Dislikes: He's a pretty agreeable fellow, but he dislikes when his bowl goes empty after dinner and long walks. ;)

Personality: Laid back, affectionate, and friendly.

Temperament: Red doesn't like having his nails touched but is treat motivated. With work he'll learn to love grooming.

Energy level: Red will follow his humans anywhere but he prefers to be snoozing. He will get a playful bout occasionally where he'll zoom or mouth his person's hand.

Favorite activities: Chewing toys, eating, lounging, and giving 80lb dog hugs!

Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?:  Red has been great with cats, and loves the neighborhood kids. He likes the company of a dog friend.

Not good with:  Taking treats gently...he gets a little over excited!

Housetrained: YES!

Crate trained: YES!

Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)?  Red is currently fostered in a home without a fence and is walking nicely on a 25ft leash.

Walks well on a leash? Yes. On a short leash he stays very close to his human.

Challenges:  Counter surfing and mouthing hands when excited. He's being redirected with "get a toy."

Any Medical issues? Red was heartworm positive and recently finished his treatments. 

What would be the best kind of home?  Red has tremendous potential to be a great family dog or dog for an older couple.  His only hang up right now is mouthing hands playfully.  Red loves watching the world go by with a human or other pet friend. He would prefer less physical activity. He's friendly, quiet, and soooo sweet.
