We've had Hank since he was a puppy. He is 3 yo. He is a good dog but with our job schedules after moving recently we just don't have time for him. He ends up siting in his kennel most of the week and we just feel like that's not fair for him. He is a good guard dog and will alert you to any noise or anything odd going. He can be a little territorial at times. He really just needs more training and would be a even better dog. He's leash trained but pulls some still at the beginning. He's house and crate trained. We have small children that he has not ever bothered in anyway way.
