Poncho is a tall, lanky fellow full of puppy energy and antics. He is spending time with our trainer as he has had very little discipline. He is learning to walk respectfully on the leash and to play well with other dogs. While he enjoys dog play, as he was very recently neutered, he can be a little pesky and alpha with some male dogs. Once the testosterone has left his system, he’ll settle down nicely and play with males and females nicely. Poncho is housebroken, although he may need a little brush up after his kennel time at the vet and boarding facility. He loves attention and will try to climb in your lap to get cuddles. He is extremely food motivated and learns quickly. While he gets a little mouthy as puppies do when they get excited, he responds well to a firm NO.
Poncho will need a firm leader who wants to continue his obedience training. He would enjoy a fenced yard with a young play buddy and/or trips to the dog park. He could also do well with frequent walks for exercise. He would do well with older children and teenagers, but would be too rambunctious for young children right now. He would also do better in a cat-free home.
If you think Poncho might make a good addition to your family, please contact me.
