Beautiful young dog, Showed up starving and near skeletal. Was very fearful but very submissive. Once he knows you are not going to hurt him he is very loving/affectionate. I believe someone abused him hence his fear of people. He does not bite, growl. Knows basic commands. All black w/white markings, about 40 lbs. Needs a fenced yard. Absolutely gorgeous young and loving puppy. I already have 6 rescues and must find a home for him quickly. Thsnk you for considering him, deserves a good permanent hom.
