Pirate is a sweet guy who loves a good hug. Happy and very social. He loves everyone he meets. Gets along great with his kennel mate (Oakley). He gets very excited when its time for a walk and can be very strong on leash initially. A fenced yard would benefit him. He is sometimes vocal, just to make sure you know he`s there. He enjoys affection and especially a good ear scratching. He is not shy one bit. Loves getting treats and takes them nicely. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
