Mickey’s Personality

He’s a goofball and wants to be around his family at all times. He can get grumpy if his number 1 person is paying too much attention to another animal so needs some reassurance when that happens. He’ll lay patiently at your feet while you’re working but if the doorbell rings or someone knocks, he’s off in a flash to see who be at the door.

Mickey’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?

I had a subscription to bark box and he loved those, but needs toys specifically for “power chewers” so he won’t demolish them within minutes

loves doggy puzzles where you hide treats in different compartments

loves rope toys and to have his people play tug of war

loves squeaky toys, but will desqueak them very quickly if they’re flimsy

loves rawhides but I know some people have a bad opinion of those so any type of “chew when he’s bored” kind of bone

Cute Mickey Story:

The very first day I brought him home he was just a tiny little thing. In my experience with new puppies, they’re a little standoffish and unsure why in the world they’re with this strange person, in a car and wondering where their mom and litter mates are. Not Mickey. I picked him up while my son was still in school so I didn’t have my usual co-pilot to assist me and Mickey absolutely refused to stay in the back seat. he was wiggle and wagging his tail so much and trying to jump the center console over and over until finally, I had to bring him up and have him in my lap on the drive home. Not the safest I’ll admit, but he immediately calmed down for the remainder of the ride.

Why is Mickey Being Rehomed?

I was recently diagnosed with a disease that attacks my central nervous system. This past year I had a major uptick in the frequency of symptoms like muscle weakness, dropping things, altered mobility issues and other physical issues that make it impossible for me to take care of him and give him the outside leash time and activity levels that he needs.

Mickey’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:

An active family preferably, or couple, or active single person. Great guard dog for single active females, they just need to understand that he is 70 pounds of straight muscle and when I was healthy, walking him could be on the tricky side if he saw something he wanted to check out more closely and I wasn’t paying attention.

If someone has smaller children, he just needs to be reminded that smaller people can fall down. he needs a bit of work on his manners, and if a family is willing/able to put him in agility or obedience training that would be ideal for all parties involved.

A big back yard is a must, or the willingness and ability to take him to a dog park.

he likes to sleep in a crate and have it covered at night while listening to Alexa “nighttime forest sounds”

he’s incredibly strong, I really cannot stress this enough. I would hate for him to be rehomed to a family that ended up having to give him up because they weren’t prepared to handle his instinct to chase small animals. he’s never bitten either a human or smaller animals, even after he’s caught one. My son has rabbits and once Mickey tore off after one and caught it, but just mouthed the rabbit and put it back on the ground not really sure how to proceed.

he’s very family oriented and wants to please his people, he’s just still younger and will need a confident dog family and a little bit of work
