Neo can be a little nervous when he first meets people but once he warms up he is a playful, loving boy. Neo is an energetic and STRONG dog that will require proper exercise and mental stimulation. He loves to play fetch, explore, and snuggle up for belly rubs!
Neo would do best in a home with no small children. Older children and teens should be fine if they know how to interact with dogs calmly and respectfully. He will also require to be the ONLY PET in the home. We have been working on his social skills when it comes to meeting other dogs, but it is a work in progress. Neo’s adopters will need to be prepared to always do controlled and slow introductions with other animals. Going to formal obedience classes would definitely be a good thing, not only for the learning but it is a good bonding opportunity for his new guardian. Neo does also have mild allergies and requires a special diet.
A behavior counseling session with our Adoption Staff is necessary before adopting any animal to ensure success.
