Hey there. My name is Cole and I'm an intelligent 2 year old boy! I hear obedience classes are a great way for us to bond and I'll get lots of treats. I'm already ahead of the game, as I know how to take treats gently and commands like sit, shake, speak, and lie down. I'm also a big fan of games such as fetch and tug-of-war! Here at the shelter, I have done well with most dogs in play groups. Because I am a big fence climber, I will do best inside with you at all times or secured with a leash until I am trained not to excape. I MEAN IT, SINCE I CAN EASLY GO OVER A 8 FT FENCE. I should also be included in my family's day-to-day activities, since I may get bored and try to entertain myself. So, we can work on crate training for when I have to be left behind or will need to be placed in a very, VERY secure covered outdoor enclosure. If you are looking for a big ol' teddy bear to snuggle up to while we discuss the day, after running a few miles and playing lots of fetch? That's me, I'm worth it!
