Walter is a BIG puppy in search of his forever home. Walter was not well socialized when he was a young pup and can be fearful. He is looking for a guardian who will be committed to continued training and confidence building using force free positive reinforcement methods. Once Walter starts to feel more confident he will show his sweet and snuggly side. A guardian with awareness about his breeds is desirable, Walter did show he was true to the breed in the foster he was in and did nightly patrols around the property. Walter would likely benefit from a home with a confident and friendly dog that he can learn from. Walter is not done growing so his new guardian will need to comfortable with a really large dog.
