it's important u understand.... He is a very loveable dog BUT has some fear aggression. You'll have to be patient with him and let him become your friend at his own speed. Hotdogs and bacon treats will help speed that along! å%A0After that he loves kisses and bellyå%A0rubs and runs around the yard or dog park. He gets along with other dogs and cats right away but people he needs to warm up to because he was abused as a puppy and is still fearful of strangers.å%A0u can't pet him until he starts nudging your hand or jumping in ur lap asking to be pet.
