Hunter was rescued as a puppy. He is very athletic, loves to swim in the ocean after the ball. (see YouTube) He gets along well with our other male dogs but can be aggressive with other dogs, especially over his ball. Loves ALL humans but hasn't been around small children. He is mostly an indoor dog & sleeps in our bedroom. Loves his dog bed! We frequently walk & hike with our dogs & he must be exercised routinely. He walks well on a leash & knows basic obedience. He is technically our daughter's dog but has lived with us while she attended college & now she has moved out of the country. He is the perfect dog for someone looking for a smart & loyal companion.
