If you’re looking for a running or a hiking buddy – Body is your new best friend! He’s a very happy and friendly pup. He loves to play with other dogs – but he comes on strong – so needs a playmate that would be confident and a bit bigger than Bode. (Currently, his play buddy is a 120 pound Plott Hound / Mastiff mix.) Bode is energetic and has two speeds – full steam ahead or dead stop! He loves tug-o-war and needs a good run/walk twice a day. He did wonderful at his eval for doggie daycare and just loved the time to run and play with new friends! He does crate well – and he’s been good overnight in a dog bed in our room. He does well with children (just know that his enthusiasm could knock over small ones without any malicious intent). NOT a good match for kitty cats. He loves to cuddle on the couch with you once his energy has been expended and he will follow you from room to room.
