Another Beauty – Lucky
His foster Mom says…
Lucky is a gentle, friendly, happy lad. He seems to get on well with people, children and dogs of all sizes. He is very interested in cats when out but has not lunged or barked at them (just walks into walls as he is so busy staring at them). He spends much of his time dozing when at home but every now and then he has a five minute burst of playing with toys and bouncing around the room like a very big puppy. He really likes toys but has not yet destroyed any. He likes soft beds (human double beds much preferred) and has to be physically lifted off the bed at night when he turns in to a dog with no legs. Once settled in his own bed he sleeps through the night and is not an early riser.
When out, he walks well on lead as long as he wears a well fitting harness. His recall needs work still, it’s not that he wants to run off, just come in his own time when finished sniffing! As yet I have seen no evidence of a strong prey drive. Lucky responds well to basic training and is keen to please but probably not the cleverest or motivated of dogs. He is not that food motivated, likes only the best in treats and can not see the point in working to get food out of activity toys!
Lucky is ok to be left either crated or uncrated but has not been left for more than a couple of hours so far. He rarely barks and does not respond to the door bell, so if you want a guard dog he is not the one for you! He has no food guarding issues and will happily share toys, chews, treats and food bowls! He does jump up occasionally, will attempt to investigate your dinner if you leave it unattended and although 99% clean does have the occasional lapse into scent marking, but overall he really is a brilliant dog who has had a rough life and deserves a soft forever sofa.
