Free, Well Trained Energetic Dog (Wilmington)
Sammy is gentle with all animals of all sizes. He has been around dogs, cats, horses, chickens, etc. He will be protective of his 'pack' but never in an aggressive manner-- he will "alert" with his loud bark when something is not quite right. He is close to 90 pounds and very tall and long- his loud bark and size are all that are needed for protection.
Sammy can easily be clipped for a summer coat. He will lay down for you while you shave him yourself with clippers! Also, when it's bath time- just say "in the tub" and he'll jump in! You can clip his nails yourself. He will just stand still and quiet for you while you clip them.
Sammy can only be in the house when humans are in the house with him. He is housebroken and knows many commands such as: 'sit', lay 'down', get 'off', 'stay', 'speak', give me your ' paw', 'get' away from there or here, get on your 'bed,' as well as many others. He's very smart and well trained. However, he has extremely severe anxiety in a house with no humans present. He is crate trained but panics when left in a crate with no humans about.
Sammy loves to be outside more than anything else. He is a good boy. He has lots of energy and walks and runs well on a leash (he uses a gentle leader) as well as will run nicely alongside a bicycle! He prefers to be outside as being in a house gives him great anxiety. Nothing makes him happier than sniffing around outside, rolling in the grass, and playing outside with bones and squeaky toys.
********** Sammy has some requirements: he needs a large fenced in back yard or a farm-type situation, as he cannot be left inside a house without a human about. He has severe anxiety inside a house and prefers to be outside when no one is home. While he is crate trained when a person is home, if he is left in a crate when no one is home, he panics. *******************
