Health Issue(s)

  • None


  • Zander is an affectionate boy that greets everyone with a friendly hello.
  • Loves to be outside, he enjoys opportunities to play with others and explore his surroundings.
  • May be a little shy and reserved in unfamiliar situations but normally comes out of his shell quite quickly.
  • Needs a bit of improvement on leash skills, and occasionally demonstrates some jumping and mouthing at hands and arms in play. Consistent reminders have already gone a long way to curb the jumping/mouthing.
  • Dog friendly and, typical of his age and breed, he may sometimes underestimate his size and strength and get a little pushy in play.
  • He does have a tendency to get protective of food, toys and high value items, especially around other dogs. He will trade items for a treat and can usually be called away from whatever it is he’s guarding.
  • Driven by touch and very food motivated.
  • He is an intellegent boy with an eager-to-please and attentive personality.

Owner Suitability

  • Zander would be best suited to an active home that provides him with many outlets for his energy, such as: playing fetch, socialization with other dogs, daily walks, etc.
  • Moderate energy level, but he will make his own fun if left alone too long without anything to do (i.e. chew on things he shouldn’t).
  • He would do well in a home with another dog, provided that dog is able to put up with his ample supply of puppy energy.
  • A fenced yard is a must, as his natural curiosity may lead him astray.
  • No kids, no cats.
  • He would benefit from a family that is committed to working at improving some of his basic leash skills and understands his guarding tendencies.
  • Experience with large breeds, especially Rottweilers, is an asset.
