Bodhi is a big, goofy boy with a heart of gold! Affectionate and handler-oriented, he wants nothing more than to be with you. He is an affectionate dog who has been called the definition of “eager to please”! If he were a human, Bodhi would work in customer service: he is always ready to go the extra mile to ensure those around him are comfortable and happy.
Bodhi is flexible and easy-going, always up for whatever those around him might be doing; from bouncing and playing to relaxing around the house. He is content to settle anywhere in his home if he can keep an eye on his person. Bodhi rides well in the car, isn’t reactive to loud noises, and responds to verbal/light correction well. He is working on reducing his mouthiness and jumping on people when excited but otherwise has great house manners. Due to his size and tendency to jump, he will need a home without small children. Bodhi is nearly fully crate trained and should be crated anytime he is left alone as he can become destructive when he is not able to be with his person. He is working on mastering basic obedience.
Bodhi would do best in a home with a family who wants to spend as much time as possible with him. He is still learning structure so will need a handler who is comfortable setting boundaries and providing slow, controlled introductions to people and other dogs. Bodhi loves to run and play so the more space the better! This eager guy is so excited to meet his future – take a chance on this goofball!
