Alex is a lovely mature gentleman. He walks well on loose lead and much stronger than you would expect. He can bark at some dogs going past. He came from the pound with little hair on his back and ear infections however both have improved substantially. He knows sit and is well mannered around people. He can be snatchy with treats. He would be best as the only dog in the household. Our trainer says:" Alex is a friendly calm dog who copes well with the noise and bustle of a normal household. He sits for treats but can be a bit pushy for food. Kids need to use a flat hand to give treats. He shows no worry about kids handling him and playing around him. He is child tolerant." He has a short coat and weighs 28.8kg.
