Ali is a guy that just wants to be with his people. His beautiful, natural tail is always wagging to show his overall happy demeanor. He is eager to go for a car ride or just sun bathe in the yard. Ali loves to go for walks and we are working him up to be a running companion. Although, he doesn’t have much stamina he is enjoying the increased activity level.
We haven’t found a toy that Ali doesn’t like! Although, he doesn’t play fetch, he loves to bat a ball around. He loves bones and will be quite content for a long time chewing on a bully stick while lounging in a soft bed.
We are working on Ali’s obedience and engagement and he is responding well. We expect him to continue to improve in this area as we spend more time practicing. He pulls on the leash at the beginning of the walk but does respond to leash corrections and settles in. With consistent training, Ali will be a great companion.
Ali doesn’t get nervous when his people leave. He likes to play with our resident dogs and would play all day long if given the opportunity. He is a rather pushy boy that is used to getting his way. He will need a parent that lets him know the rules and sticks to them 100% of the time.
This boy is not suited for a home with young children as he doesn’t know his own strength and could knock them over. Also, Ali has a very high prey drive. He cannot live in a home with cats, birds or other small animals. Ali doesn’t do well in the heat and will do best living his life in a cooler climate.
