I adopted Sonny from the local shelter when he was about 2.5/3years old. He is now around 8 or 9 years old. He still has his can still be quite energetic, but much calmer than when he was younger and spends much of the day sleeping. He is the sweetest dog to those he knows and trusts, but does not like strangers -it takes him time to adjust to new people but once he trusts you he is a love bug. I have never trusted him around kids, so I'm not sure how he would be. He is very protective of his family and house. This dog is my best friend, but we are expecting a baby and I'm not sure I can trust Sonny around a baby. It breaks my heart to give him away. He is part of our family. I'm looking for someone who will take him for lots of walks and spoil and love him as much as we do. He would do best in a quiet home somewhere in the country. He gets along with other dogs (currently we have one other dog in the house and the two dogs get along well). Sonny also loves to run around and play with my moms young lab. He is extremely food driven and he knows basic commands.
