Working Ability:
Working Comments: Mako has had no training and is excited to learn things. He is mouthy and wants to grab at things. He is learning quickly that nothing belongs to him. everyone will be happier if he has on-going formal and informal training. He's very smart, so if you don't give him something to do, he will find something.
Behavioral Problems:
Other Behavioral Problems: He is very enthusiastic and has springs in his feet! He is a sweet boy and loves attention. He will need a crate and is crate trained.
Bitten? Yes
Bite Explanation: As I stated above, Mako is very mouthy. In his last home, he counter surfed and when the item was taken from him, they said he put his teeth on them. While he has been in foster care, I have noticed that he tries to grab things back. But we are learning sit nicely and some impulse control. He will need to learn that he is not in charge.
Commands known:
  • Sit
  • Down
Tricks: He still has to be lured with a treat for these two commands and to return whatever he has retrieved.
Other Info: Mako has been surrendered to the shelter twice and he is less than a year old. He needs a home that will work with him and give him the chance he deserves. He's a nice looking dog and wants to please
