Tony is a 5 year old now neutered blue merle. He was an outside dog and he is learning house manners very quickly. He is very friendly and affectionate, he just can’t get enough attention.
Tony has been good with the younger dogs in his foster home but has gone after the senior dog, we believe for jealousy reasons over his foster Mom.
Tony likes kids. He has not been tested with cats, but former owner said he doesn’t like them.
He is a quiet boy overall and barking some when he is left alone. Tony has not shown any aggressive food issues. He was excellent with the groomer and enjoys being brushed at home. Tony has not been in a crate but does well when left in the house. He paces when he needs to go outside for potty breaks. Tony loves to go for walks with the other dogs and is learning not to pull on the leash.
Tony does not get on the couch or chairs, but has jumped on the bed a couple times, which is OK with the foster mom. He sleeps at the foot of the bed and is quiet all night. Tony is really a very sweet and loving.
Tony needs some to continue working on his training. His new owner definitely needs to be the alpha so Tony doesn't think it's OK to bully any senior dogs. He does back down to younger dogs. Of course his hormones are still wearing off after his neuter so we expect continued changes in him for the better.
Tony is being fostered in Ohio.
