About Escobar

Escobar is a friendly fellow with a passion for exploration! He walks very well on leash and loves nothing more than to go out into the world and claim it as his own, one lamppost or fire hydrant at a time.

The perfect home for Escobar will be one that can give him lots of love, as well as chances to get out and be active. Escobar is fantastic with people of all sizes. He loves to cuddle up in the evening and has been gentle and patient with the kids he has met while in foster.

Escobar also has an unreciprocated…enthusiasm for various creatures of the world, such as squirrels and cats. This prey drive can get him into trouble from time to time, as his impulse control for such things is a work in progress. One the other hand, it does translate into a lot of fun with the flirt stick in the back yard.

With other dogs, Escobar can be a bit selective. He has had good experiences with some dogs, and chooses to let others know when he is not interested. He has been attending some reactivity classes recently and is making lots of progress week-to-week.

If you give him half a chance, this big lug will worm his way into your heart and the both of you will be all the better for it.
