Pfriem is an absolute joy! He is eager to work with his handler and is social with people in almost all situations. If he were a human, Pfriem would be a logger: he is fit and strong and will work all day if given the opportunity!
Pfriem is friendly and curious and enjoys bouncing around and exploring new places. He likes being with his person and being outside, and he is still learning what it means to be a dog. He will require a handler committed to providing him with continued reinforcements of boundaries and direction. Pfriem has not spent much time outside of his current foster home but did well with one other male dog he met. Given his personality, he would do best in a home without small animals, children, or cats. He is learning house manners and is fully crate trained. Pfriem is working on basic obedience and controlling his exuberant barking when in the car.
Pfriem needs a home and handler that will provide consistent and clear leadership. His new handler will need to be willing to continue working with him to develop his manners and obedience. He will require controlled supervision in most new situations and will need to be crated when unsupervised. Pfriem thrives with structure and consistent handling. He may excel in a low-stress sport such as rally or agility once he’s mastered the basics. Pfriem is the perfect blank canvas for someone looking for a challenge, and he is eager to show you what he’s got!
