Is your current high energy dog wearing you out? Do you long to spend some of your relaxation time actually relaxing. Well let me introduce Atreus. This guy is guaranteed to keep your medium/large dog entertained and exercised on a daily basis. Atreus is himself a high energy guy who loves to chase, wrestle, play. He is good with large male and female dogs. Atreus is still working on his socialization skills but has come a long way since being with GSRA. He practices good social behavior weekly with outings to a busy downtown, where he will comfortably weave in and out of crowds on main street, allowing people, dogs, strollers and bikes to pass him at close range. He also loves hiking in the state park and enjoying the smells of nature. He is good with older children and dog savvy cats. He loves to be outside and will need a fenced yard to run in (4 ft is okay). Atreus is crate trained, house trained, a good car rider and an excellent leash walker - ask him to heal and he will be right by your side, allow him the full length of the leash and he will still keep it loose and not drag you down the street. Atreus is 15 months old and is still filling out his adult body. He is tall, dark and handsome and turns heads when people see him out and about. He will need a playful companion in his forever home.
