Personality: This handsome blonde young man is new to GRR. Still only a year old, he has a lot of life and puppy in him and a whole wonderful life left in him for some lucky family.

Enzo is still having some accidents in the house, so he has to be taken out at regular intervals since he has not learned to ask to go out when it’s time. But things are heading in the right direction. He sleeps in his crate at night after a little urging to go in. But once in he is quiet for the night. If he is left to sleep outside the crate on his bed, he tends to end up on his foster folks’ bed. Smart dog! If he were to be left alone, he would be crated at this point.

Enzo has not met children, other dogs, or cats yet, so his behavior towards them is yet unknown. He needs to be enticed to get in the car and once in, stands and pays attention to all the sites and sounds around him. He pulls some on the leash, but there is plenty of time for him to be trained to walk properly with his humans. He will retrieve a ball but is not in to dropping it for you yet.

In the house, Enzo is excitable but most certainly not out of control. He’s always afraid he’s going to miss the action and must go see anything that makes a noise or check on anyone coming into or leaving the room. He will, though, eventually lay down and rest. He has been known to put his paws on the counter, but no snatching has happened.

Since Enzo is so high energy, he’s been getting a least 3 walks a day and few backyard play sessions, too. This can make all the difference in the world. He’s a bit jumpy now when it comes to sudden or loud noises, like the big-bad garbage truck or the garage door and that scary garbage disposal! All these normal sounds will undoubtedly start to become normal to him.

Ideal Home: Enzo definitely needs a family who has the time and energy to give him plenty of exercise and attention. He’s a big, excitable boy so he may be better suited to a family with no small children but other dogs for him to romp with would be a plus.
