One and a half year-old Ivan- what can we say about Ivan? He is a goofy puppy who is just so curious about everything! He is terrified of people but wants to be friends so badly! Slowly he will learn to trust more and more. He's not housebroken and will need a lot of work in this area. He doesn't seem to know how to play with toys but we are hoping once he settles into life in a home he will learn and he can burn off some of this crazy energy. We would prefer a fenced in yard and another dog for this guy so he can figure out what it's like to be a pet. He has no idea how to walk on a leash and has to be carried sometimes! He's heavy and very strong so please keep these things in mind before you apply. We are confident that with some patience and love Ivan will be a totally awesome dog!
Update ! Ivan has mad amazing strides ! He is no longer afraid to be touched and we have found this boy LOVES children ! We still do NOT recommend Ivan for small children only because he himself is still so "childlike". Ivan has no clue how big or how strong he is and is unaware of where his body is. We would say kids over 6 and not afraid to bounce LOL. You have to have a sense of humor with Ivan aound because he will make you laugh! Ivan MUST go to a home with another dog and a totally secured fenced in yard
