This guy is a) one GORGEOUS boy in person - he’s coat isn’t exactly brown and not exactly red - it’s in the middle and absolutely stunning and b) one big boy at approx. 90 lbs at 10-11 months of age.
He’s also very lucky because he was tied to a pole in Memphis - tied so tightly he could barely move in the heat when a friend of our group came upon him - she asked around and people said he’d been there for a long time and was abandoned. Complete insanity. Off to her house and then the vet he went.
Penn is the most fun dog with other dogs ever - he just LOVES them and really needs one to be happy in his home or at the very least doggie daycare and lots of socialization. He loves his humans too but to be truly happy he needs 4-legged fun. He’s somewhat of a baby Huey and learning not to barrel into situations.
For right now he’s boarding in a dog day care and is loving it. Dogs that can be a bit pushy don’t bother him - he looks at them and then either plays with them or moves away - no negative reactions. He lived successfully in a home for two weeks while he was recovering from his neuter surgery and did great there as well except he drove the small, older dogs crazy because he wanted to play.
This guy is going to be a big hit we think as well as a big dog, most likely in the 100-110 range.
