Egan's former owner had tried to sell him, but had no offers, so the man just moved off and left him chained-up in a cousin's back yard. No one has seen the man for quite a while and the cousin is unable to care for a large dog. Egan is very energetic and hasn't had much in the way of socialization. He is learning how to walk on a lead without pulling and how to obey basic commands. He does get along with other dogs. Egan has been neutered. He is about a year old. Egan will need a home with a lot of structure and room to work off his pent-up energy with exercise and positive interaction. Adoption requirements for Egan are: preadoption application, vet reference, fenced yard or rural acreage, not to be tethered or tied, and previous experience with this breed. An online preadoption application is available by clicking the link on our home page at: www.ockyanimals.petfinder.com .
