Gantu has a Superman personality – all he’s missing is a cape! He bonds closely with one person and is very obedient and eager to please. If he were a human, he’d be a security guard: alert, protective, proactive, and ready for anything. He is desperately loyal and can’t wait to see what forever has in store for him.
Gantu does well with other dogs and wouldn’t mind sharing his home with some canine companions. However, he does take time to warm up to strangers. He will need slow, careful introductions to new people he meets both in and outside of his home. Gantu rides well in the car both in and out of his crate, is calm around loud noises, and will bring a smile to your face with his goofy playing! He is food motivated and enjoys receiving praise from his people. He responds well to firm and fair correction and is currently working on reducing his dislike when away from his people. He will require a handler who is prepared to continue to mentor him through this issue. Gantu is working on basic obedience and is fully crate trained.
Gantu’s ideal home would be one where he could spend the majority of his time with his people. He is affectionate and engaging and loves any and all outings, especially hiking! He’d prefer a quieter home without much chaos. This Superman can’t wait to find his crime-fighting partner and the perfect place for him to hang up his cape at night – give him a chance to wow you!
