Arthur (Adoption Pending)

BREED: Newfoundlander type
AGE: 4 years old
SIZE/WEIGHT: 123 lbs.
HISTORY: He lived with a single male and was a very close companion to him. His person was not well for the last few years so he was around all the time. Owner sadly recently passed away.
TEMPERAMENT: He appears to be calm, good natured, and patient.
PERSONALITY: Arthur is affectionate and attached quickly. He loves attention.
HOW IS DOG WITH CATS: As far as we can tell he ignores them.
HOW IS DOG WITH CHILDREN: He is calm with people as far as we know. He appears to be patient and non-reactive around kids. He lets us play with his ears and paws.
PETS NEEDS/BEHAVIOURAL INFO: Arthur is intelligent but not well trained. He seems responsive to what we have done so far and it has only been a few days. He is getting better on leash but recall is so-so. Best to go to off-leashed fenced area for now. He is very leisurely. He follows and happier to be with people. He is not food or toy protective.
BEST MATCH: Arthur would be good with someone who knows the breed and is willing to effort for basic training and exercised. – He will be a very good companion dog, loyal, and protective but not overly so.
FAVORITE THINGS: Loves neck scratches, chasing balls, playing (he is gentle), tummy rubs, chewing on a particular rubber toy, walks.
