Hi, my name is Ike or “Big Ike” to my friends. I am what the southern folk call a “southern gentlemen”, I am calm, laid back and well mannered. I love everyone I meet and I am also a very smart boy because I knew just who to follow home when I was lost.
I’m currently living on a small farm, so I’ve never been in a crate except to ride in a car and I did fine. I love to ride, I load up perfectly, no car sickness or anything. I will need commitment to help transition me from my current lifestyle to one with family, love and attention. I am eager to please and interact with people in an indoor, home environment. I would make a good trail dog as I love to go on walks and explore my surroundings. I have learned to walk on a leash using a gentle leader, since I still pulled some.
I live around outdoor kitties and I basically ignore them, but I would need to be with a cat that is dog savy as I can be rough when I play.
There are no kiddies in my foster home, but I am great with everyone I meet out in public, including kids.
I need a home with a tall fence as I have climbed out of the one on the farm a few times, I don’t run away when on the outside but my foster mom tells me its not a good thing to do. I just get board with out some attention and I always get some attention when I climb out!!!
I had to stay somewhat quiet in the Texas heat because of recent heartworm treatment, but my treatment is now done, so I can start to play again!!! I would love to have a young active family who would make sure I get plenty of exercise.
Neither my foster mom nor my trainer have seen any anxiety, I’m just a calm, chill, and handsome boy (so everyone says!) that is just so eager to please.
