Approximate DOB 08/05/2020 Size - 70 lbs History- An awesome woman and her family took in a couple dogs and before they could get them fixed they had puppies. Luckily they reached out to us for help. We accepted her into our mother/pup program so now that the puppies are old enough to leave mom we will have mom spayed and she can remain with her owner and we will place the babies. Mom is a Red Heeler/Mastiff mix and dad is a Labrador Retriever mix. We have named all 8 babies after the cast from Lucifer as that is what we are currently watching - Lucifer (Shadow), Mazikeen, Ella, Kane, Amenadiel, Linda, Chloe, and Dan. However, after being adopted he got used to the name Shadow so are keeping that one instead. Temperament- Very, very high energy - loves kisses. Loves learning and is eager to follow instruction. He might be amazing for someone wanting an agility dog, a running partner, a hiking partner, etc. He is overall well behaved but does get over excited meeting new people and can't help but start jumping!! With a prong collar though he acts correctly. He is also a tad tricky - So when meeting strangers he will act excited to meet them and he will be sweet and act as though they are friends however if they leave and then come over later when you are not home he does act like he does not know them and will act like Cujo. So just be aware he is a fierce guard dog when it comes to his home and family - if his family is not there. Currently he is left inside when I am not home as people can't be trusted to not put their hand in the fence to pet him and I am not sure if he will bite but suspect he might if they don't listen to the growls and barks to move back away from the fence (told to me by our neighbor who thought they were friends as she always gives him treats and pets him when we are standing at the fence talking- she truly loves him and thought they were bffs until one day I left him outside while I ran out for a bit and she thought she would give him treats and pets at the fence since he had nobody to hang out with since I had left and she said he was a different dog than she was used to loving on. So that is his only major quirk which isn't all that bad if you have him inside loose and live alone you know you will be protected. Energy Level- Very, very high energy! He runs and plays all day outside with Phoebe and then will continue to play fetch with me. This guy would do great with a very active family maybe that goes on 4 wheelers or something he can run with and hop on when he gets tired. He doesn't do well in the heat though and will prefer to be inside in air conditioning once it get too hot outside for him. Dogs/Cats- He is super high energy and freaks some dogs out but then does calm down with time. He does do better with females than males. He is good with all sizes of dogs but yea we do say females better than males as he is a very dominant dog. However, upon saying that he is scared of my male chihuahua but he grew up with Tug being the boss so that is just what he is used to. He did get adopted with the family that adopted his brother but the two started fighting badly so he was returned so a female would be best for him as he never fights with the girls here. He loves the girls and all the puppies. Housetrained- Perfectly house and crate trained. This boy has never marked or had an accident. However he does rip up his bedding if he does not get enough outside playtime. A tired dog is a good dog definitely fits him. Shadow will make the perfect addition to an active family wanting a large active dog to take on adventures- hiking, 4 wheeling, hunting, etc. He would do best in an adult only home due to his guardian instincts possibly from the mastiff in him. He gets way to excited with kids- for instance when my 2 year old granddaughter comes over he jumps on the couch to where she is so he can lick her to death but he doesn't realize how big he is so knocks her over she now goes in my room when he is being let in or out. Not because he is mean but because he will barrel right over on top of her to give her love- so she gives him treats in his crate.
