Sam is a great guard dog who is alert, affectionate, playful, and sweet. He is good with traveling in car, camping or going for hike. Wants to be part of the human pack but would do best as only dog as he is fairly dominant. This type of dog is not for average dog owner. Serious inquiries only with working line dog experience as he will need an active job to meet his breed requirements. Several past months have been spent on training on walks, socialization, desensitization, resource guarding, leash manners, obedience commands, and some protection. We bought him as older pup 8mo to train as guard/family dog but a unknown family dog allergy does not allow for us to keep him inside unfortunately. He would do best on large property to run and adult/older teens at home. Has very high prey drive. Great tracker as he tracked entire path of black bear who broke fence to get in backyard. This dog needs continued professional training and obedience. He is very smart but also stubborn (Dutch and Mal breed). He is playful (Dutch breed) and affectionate (GDS). We are not looking to give this dog away bur are looking to recoup some of costs and find appropriate home for him. There is a adoption fee and it's not cheap due to breeds and training.
