Are you looking for an intelligent and fun-loving sidekick for your active lifestyle? What a coincidence, so is Julio
Why we love Julio–and you should too!
Julio came to us after being mishandled for much of the first year of his life. He was clearly stressed and traumatized, but bounced back quickly with some Friends For Life TLC. With gentle training techniques, he is learning to feel confident with different people and situations.
With every day that Julio spends at FFL, we love him more and more, and this is why:
- Julio is a canine genius! It only takes one repetition for him to learn a new trick. He knows how to sit, lie down, go to his mat, make eye contact, and come when called.
- Julio is easy to please! He not only works for treats, but he will perform his trained behaviors for toys, a chance to put his leash on, or for you to open the door for him.
- Julio is so much fun! He can chase toys all days for you and, even better, he’ll bring them back and relinquish them to your hand automatically, no commands needed!
- Julio does like an occasional massage and belly rub, but he’s not clingy. He’d much rather play than cuddle.
Julio is a bright, enthusiastic, and tenacious guy who could be your ideal activity partner – if you wouldn’t mind hanging with a dog who may just be smarter than you!
Apartment Status: Julio would prefer to live in a house; apartments can be challenging for him.
