    Easy going older guy

    Roman came through the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force from a northern community. He had been tied up all his life and unfortunately due to his dominant nature, and being tied up all the time, he had some aggression towards humans but he has been rehabilitated and is now a loving guy. He is slow moving, enjoys off leash walks, loves swimming in the river and wrestling with a toy. He still has a dominant nature and being aware of his body language is important. Although Roman loves people he still has the odd trigger when taken by surprise or if he senses uneasiness with non-dog people. He needs a person or people to be his leader that understands body language and behaviours. He likes to bark when at the dog park and will run slowly up to other dogs, but he is not aggressive in any way towards other dogs. Roman loves to be cuddled and have his belly rubbed. He is a super easy going guy. Is great in the house and just hangs out but getting him off the couch is a must as he does love being outside and going for walks. He can be very slow on leash basically because he doesn’t like being on leash therefore he its easier to take him to the off leash park. Roman is a great guy.
