Are you looking for someone who loves to run and can go on and on and on? An Energizer Bunny in Shepherd’s clothing? Someone who can keep up with you no matter what? If you answered “yes” to these questions I’m the guy for you.
My name is Enzo - as in Enzo Ferrari, the race car driver. While, sadly, we’re not related he and I have a lot in common, in particular a love for speed. I love to run and can spend hours proving to the toys in the yard that they’ll never be faster than I am. No matter how far they go or how quickly they get there they can be sure I’ll be ready and waiting for them.
In most ways I’m a typical Shepherd. I leave fur all over the house, bark at strange noises, love to eat and be with my family but I’m also special. I have an endearing habit of using people’s hands as a leash; it reminds them we’re supposed to stay together. I also tend to be a bit sassy - okay, a lot sassy. My mind is always working and I have a lot to say so when I feel the need I just go with it.
I can be unexpectedly reactive too. Not to other dogs or even cats, but I have to admit there are times I forget who’s in charge of the household and foolishly show off my pearly whites with a quick air-snap. I’ve never actually used them on anybody and don’t plan to. It is a bad habit of mine but I feel sure once we understand each other I’ll be able to stop doing that.
On a positive note, I get along with all dogs from those bigger than me down to my little pal Hercules. He’s a mini dachshund but his attitude is equal to mine any day; one of our favorite games is tug of war. I’m curious about the cats but don’t bother them. Once I’ve met them people are welcome to come in and out of the house. I know my kennel is a safe place and will willingly go in. I am very good with all the basics – sit, down, stay – walk well on a lead (once we’ve established I’m not calling the shots), ride beautifully in the car, sleep through the night and never ever make a mess in the house.
If your family is as special as I am, you have the time and think you can keep up with me I’d love to meet and discuss the possibilities. I promise to entertain you, always love you and keep you safe but you have to provide what it takes for me to be the special boy I am.
