Clark is a young, exuberant Doberman mix. He loves his naps and cuddles with his humans, and enjoys off leash romps through his back yard. He is also a star when walking on leash.
When he first came from the shelter, he was still intact, so he decompressed and recovered from his neutering surgery for several weeks before being slowly introduced to the resident house dogs. He is very dog friendly, but had some mounting behaviour which he is slowly learning is not acceptable. He also likes to play rough and would need a hardy dog friend who is up for wrestling and chasing outside. Inside, he is happy to just co-exist with other dogs, even sharing his bed and toys with them.
Clark is happy to play on his own and would also do well as the only dog in the house. He loves playing with rope toys in the yard, and often prances and hops like a gazelle with his toy held high. Inside, he is content with a comfy place to rest and a good nylabone or two or ten.
He is also fully crate trained and happy to just relax with the door opened or closed when you are home. When you are away, he is satisfied with a kong and a couple of hard toys. He has exhibited minor signs of separation anxiety when he first arrived in foster care, but he has quickly adjusted once given a solid crating routine.
Clark would do best in a home with a fenced yard, a dog-friendly couch, a predictable daily routine and a crate. He would also be able to live with another dog. He would probably do best without small children (he is very bouncy!) and cats or other small animals (he is too fascinated in them).
