Meet Hero! Hero is a big goofball, weighing in at nearly 70 pounds. His energy level is great – he’s always up for a walk or to play, but he doesn’t get bored snuggling on the couch or on his dogbed. He has a gorgeous brindle coat like a tiger, a full tail, natural ears and white “socks”. He is also quite tall for his size. He lives with our resident female boxer, and they are great friends. They enjoy tugging on toys and running around the house. He seems to get along with other dogs once he meets them, although his manners on walks need some work as he tends to bark at dogs and people he wants to say hello to. He is completely house trained.Hero is EXTREMLY loyal and wants nothing more than to be with his family. At home, he is really the perfect dog. However, in new situations and environments, he can be protective of his humans and displays some anxious behavior. For that reason, we think he would do best with someone with previous dog experience.Will this goofy boy join your family?
