Young, active, smart, bored Theo needs a new family/companion who is willing to invest the time and energy necessary to show him how to be the best version of himself. Theo is a gorgeous 5-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog /Sheltie X who has the typical traits of a working dog who need physical and mental activity to channel their energy. Theo is calm, easygoing and always friendly with the people and dogs that he meets. He is happiest playing out doors with his human or canine family or just out for a long neighbourhood walk. Theo craves love and affection and especially cuddles.

He has enormous potential but has become under-stimulated and frustrated as his needs are not being met. He could benefit from doggie friends to romp with at the dog park, but would best as the one and only dog in the home. He is food driven, great for treat training but a reason to keep food off the counters and garbage cans hidden. He can be protective of his home and family and will react by barking and be overexcited when delivery people or visitors approach the house. This will be fixable with the help of a trainer (paid for by Gerdy’s) to put protocols in practice. 

Theo is in good health albeit a bit chunky (60+ lbs.) and needs more exercise to lose some weight; he is neutered, microchipped and his vaccines are up to date. He is house trained, can stay alone for part of the day and is comforted in the safety of his bed. We recommend kids 10+ .Theo can be quite vocal when overexcited so no apartments or condos. A detached house with a large securely fenced backyard is essential. If pool must have a secured fence.
