Guapo the Great!
First off, let’s just put it out there that this boy weighs in at 170lbs. Naturally, everything about him is to scale (drool and 💩 included). You may need to get him his own double mattress- or better yet, a King to match his personality. Guapo is a jolly gentleman, who is fairly keen on sharing his vast amount of love and slobber with you!
Guapo is only aware of his size when it creates an obstacle, such as turning around in tight spaces. For example, vehicles. He steps on into them with ease, but does need to exit from the opposite side he entered 🤣. That being said, he loves car rides! He sits contently and enjoys the passing views. He loves to pick out his own toys, and proudly prances around with them sticking out of his not so little mouth. He’s quite the character!
He walks well on leash (when he wants to), and prefers to go for saunters. However, Guapo requires a physically able and confident owner, as his strength is very real. Nervous at times, Guapo sometimes feels the need to flee at the sight of danger. If you’re not prepared, the saunter will turn into an unexpected run for the both of you 🏃. Lacking in outside socialization, Guapo still has a lot of new things to experience and see. In his own space however, he feels it is very important to protect his property and his people.
While he may not be the most active or agile fellow on the block, Guapo still needs plenty of stimulation for both mind and body. He has experience with other dogs, and generally has a fairly nonchalant attitude towards them. At this time, we think it’s best for Guapo to be placed in a home without cats or small children.
If you’re in the market for a good-lookin’, mellow giant to share your heart and home with- look no further! Guapo is more than happy to fill in aaalllll that space for ya!
