Baker is the kind of dog who is very eager to learn and to please people, but who also needs direction and a patient person. He is extremely food motivated and loves to figure out food puzzles. He can figure out any puzzle his caregivers give him, and he enjoys fun doggie sports like nose work and agility. At the Sanctuary, Baker has some separation anxiety because he truly loves being with people. He is on prescription medication to help him adjust, and the behaviors were not seen in his previous home. With training and extra enrichment, his anxiety has decreased. Born in 2017, Baker knows a handful of basic training cues and is learning more daily. He currently knows how to walk nicely on a leash, he is muzzle trained, and he knows sit, down and shake. He's also working on crate training. Baker is a smart dog with lots of potential for more training. In his previous home, he lived with both large and small dogs, but at the Sanctuary he is currently living alone. He should not live with cats or other small animals, since he does have a bit of a prey drive. Baker would excel in an adult-only home with someone who can give him plenty of guidance and enrichment.
