Meet Nathan

Add to favourites

Nathan is a bundle of joy with boundless energy and a goofy demeanor. He’s a true adventurer at heart and always ready for action. His playful nature makes him the perfect companion for an active individual, couple, or family.

Nathan is best suited for an experienced dog owner who understands his specific needs and can provide the necessary guidance and structure. This big boy loves to run and stretch his legs so a fenced yard is an absolute must for his new home. While he’s a sweetheart, he is reactive to dogs, so an owner who can manage his interactions is essential. He’s still working on learning his basic manners and would benefit from some ongoing training with an Animal Kind trainer. He can make friends with some dogs and has been working on these skills, however he might not appreciate doggie neighbours at this time while he’s still learning how to properly introduce himself.

Nathan is a star on a leash. He walks beautifully and can make even the most mundane walks feel like an adventure. He’s always up for a game of fetch or a run in the park. His high energy levels make him an excellent companion for those who love outdoor activities and he would love to go jogging, cycling, or anything where he can run along with you, but will need a bit more work on his focusing skills before being able to pass by other dogs appropriately.

Nathan will bring endless joy and fun to the right owner or family. Trust us; he’s worth every second of love and care you invest in him! 🐾💕
