Ciao! My name is Dante and I'm on the search for a comfy couch and fun-loving family! I am the kind of dude who will match the energy of my family: my favorite activity in the world is lounging on the couch, but a close second is playing outside. If you want to relax all day with some Netflix, let's do it! If you wanna romp around and run zoomies in our yard, I am all about that life! When I want to play, I can be quite boisterous so I would do best in an adult-only home and I should be your only pet - no other dogs or kitty cats, please! I also need a fenced yard, preferably with a tall fence that is at least 5 feet, so I can run zoomies and play fetch before we curl up on the couch again to catch some zzzz's.

I am a very smart guy, and generally well behaved around the home. I am potty and crate trained: I actually love my crate and think of it as my personal man cave where I can enjoy some quiet time chewing on durable toys and kongs. Everyone is a work in progress, however, and I would appreciate a family with previous strong-dog experience who will work with me on my leash manners. I get SO excited when I see new people or dogs and can pull hard to greet them. I would do best in a quiet suburban neighborhood where there are not many distractions on walks, and my humans need to commit to training classes so I can work on not pulling so hard on the leash when I want to try and meet new potential friends. I already know a few basic commands such as sit and wait, and I really enjoy learning so I think training classes could be the first of many fun adventures! I am a big, goofy guy who doesn't realize just how big I am, but big dogs have big hearts filled with lots of love, am I right? I hope you fill out an adoption application soon so I can show you how affectionate I can be!
