Shadow is an EXTREMELY intelligent, beautiful, absolute goofball of a dog! He loves to cuddle, and according to him, sleeping in bed with you at night is a non-negotiable (Lol). Shadow needs lots of stimulation, attention, and exercise - and will voice his opinion if he feels like he’s not getting enough of it! With a very big bark and almost unlimited potential, Shadow has the capability of becoming an amazing guard dog, working dog, or adventure partner for the right person. Shadow is still in need of socialization with other dogs, as he does have anxiety and feels the need to protect his owner; but this can be overcome with professional training.
Shadow LOVES to play fetch, tug, and de-squeak all of his squeaker toys. He knows basic commands such as stay, come, sit, jump, lay down, and get your toy, and knows many other human words (hungry, potty, outside, trip, walk, treat, etc.).
Ideally, Shadow would fit into a home with a very active owner, who has the time to take him along for adventures. While Shadow can have anxiety in dog parks or around other dogs in general, he is wonderful for hiking or other isolated outdoor activities. Shadow would thrive in a home with one other dog, female, and no young children. Shadow would not do well in a home where he is left alone often due to work schedules, school, or other obligations. He is a needy baby in the absolute best of ways! ♥️🐶
