Special Criteria
Sanctuary Visit Required

Racko is extremely intelligent. He loves his training sessions and learning new things. He is a master at fun doggie sports, including agility and treibball, and he knows quite a few tricks. He is also very active and always up for an adventure. Born in 2014, Racko is loving and sweet. He's a dog who really appreciates snuggles and belly rubs. He will crawl right in your lap for love and attention.Although Racko is crate trained and walks very well on leash, he can be reactive towards cyclists and skateboarders and will try and bite at them as they pass. He can also be reactive towards other animals, particularly through barriers like fences and gates. In a previous home, he redirected on a person while reacting to a deer through a window. Racko is picky with his doggie friends and cannot live with cats, as he has shown aggression toward them in the past.At Dogtown, Racko is doing plenty of training to reduce his reactivity. He would do best in an active home with someone who is experienced with working breeds, as he needs regular exercise for both his body and mind. Racko is a very fun boy to be around and can definitely liven up a room or your whole home.
