Meet Wilson! Due to a strong desire to chase everything, Wilson must go to a home with a fenced yard. Wilson is a one-year-old male with cropped ears and a docked tail. He has the typical energy level of a one-year-old, which is to say quite a bit!
He sleeps in a crate, which he’ll enter easily for a treat. He rides well in a car, although he wants to see what’s going on outside. He’s very good at basic commands such as sit, down, touch. He knows wait, but struggles at times to maintain that until you release him. We’ve been working on his recall and impulse control, and he’s doing a good job with both. He has learned to walk pretty well on a loose leash, although he needs to be reminded frequently not to pull. And if he finds an interesting smell along the way, he has no problem pulling you to it.
Wilson is very intelligent and eager to learn new things. He’s also very curious, so he’ll need lots of mental stimulation to keep him out of trouble. He wants to be where the action is, and doesn’t like to be separated from his people. He’s friendly with new people, and typically doesn’t jump up unless he’s playing and gets overly excited. He loves to chase balls and frisbees, and to play tug with a rope toy. And he likes other dogs.
If you have the time to work with him every day, he will be an excellent companion.
