Richie has a genuinely happy and playful disposition. He LOVES people. He is polite with cats. He is dog friendly but is currently learning to have manners with them. Richie was never properly socialized. He absolutely loves the other dogs but doesn't know how to engage. He has been working on this every day and shows consistent signs of improvement with reading other dogs cues and understanding rules of engagement.

Richie LOVES to play. He'll chase a ball but won't actually get it ?? but this boys real love is tug of war! He has shown SUCH a willingness to learn. He responds to his name and knows how to sit, lay down and give his paw. He is working on learning place and understanding leash communication. He is crate trained and house trained.

Richie is a big strong boy. He currently weighs about 65lbs and probably will be about 70lbs at ideal weight. He is friendly with kids but because of his size, older kids may be best. He also will need allergy medicine life long. His allergies are 100% manageable with the meds.
