Tenderfoot is a handsome American Staffordshire / Lab type mix who came up from North Carolina. He has such a nice, people friendly personality. However, he has had a rough life with no training thus far. He needs some work on his leash manners, which a gentle leader or no pull harness help greatly with. He loves people and loves to play, but doesn''t yet know that it''s not appropriate to jump up on people. Tenderfoot is quite interactive with toys, but needs reminders to be careful not to get hands in his excitement. Because of this, he would be best in a home with older kids who can stand up to his rough play style. He is very, very responsive and eager to please - he would be a fun dog to take to obedience classes. He will learn quickly what is required of him, and will make a great companion once he''s mastered the basics. He does appear to be housetrained, but may have a few accidents at first as he gets used to his new schedule. He is not possessive of toys or food, but will sometimes try to swallow rawhides whole so he shouldn''t get those. He really wants to play with other dogs, but might do best with another large dog that can handle a rough play style. He does come on pretty strongly with dogs sometimes, so please bring yours by and we can introduce them if you''re interested. We don''t know yet how he would do with cats, but can cat-test him for an interested family. Please come by and visit with Tenderfoot soon, as he really deserves the chance at a good life.
