Case Number: #3787
Hi, I'm Rambo. I am a 1-year-old Saint Benard Mix who is currently staying at the as I wait for someone to adopt me.
I am large like a Saint Bernard, with the large paws but I definitely have some other breed mixed in. I am considered extra large, but that means there's just more of me to love!
I am a playful, exuberant dude. I love everyone, even the most unusual of strangers; I just need to learn to be more polite when meeting them. I like playing with people and simply love toys, but I can get over-excited. I'll need to learn some impulse control in order to play politely. In fact, I enjoy toys so much that I sometimes guard them from people. I'll need a patient, experienced adopter who can teach me how to share.
I am uncomfortable with some handling (paws, muzzle) and will need a patient adopter who will help me become more accepting of it. I will readily share my food with people, but I get a little more attached to my chewies.
I am very interested in making the acquaintance of other dogs, but I'm a rude, high-energy player so I hope you'll find me appropriate playmates who will play like I do and won't take offense. I should really learn some manners and impulse control when around other dogs.
I have already had some training (sit, down, shake) and am eager to learn more for a taste of my favorite treats (Yum!). I also need to learn to walk nicely on leash and not to be jumpy or mouthy!
Since I tend to be very high energy and can be jumpy and mouthy, I would be best in an adult-only, dog-experienced home with guardians who will provide structure and teach me impulse control and polite behavior.
