Sumo

Greetings Future Furever Family!!

Sumo here to introduce myself to you. DLRR rescued me from the county pound and I went immediately into foster care with my rescuer.  I am called Sumo, but I'm not quite sure that is really my name-might you have a better one??  I don't know how to wrestle! (Foster Mom calls me Bubby!!) I am a beautiful, sweet, gentle 2 year old black neutered boy weighing at about 87 lbs.  I am a very quiet boy (no barking!) that likes to chill inside and out-I really love it outside on the lawn.  Foster Mom likes how I sleep quietly through the night and how I relax during the day whether Foster Mom is here or not.  When she is home, I love to get attention and pets from her–I'm really quite a lover (another reason why the name Sumo doesn't fit me LOL).  I'm pretty much a turn-key dog with no flaming bad habits–I am housebroken, doggy door trained, know the command “sit” and have excellent house manners.  I am GREAT on the leash during walks, except when I roll in the grass LOL. Ahhh- it feels so good!  I do need a strong, confident leader when passing other dogs.  I went to doggie day camp a few times –boy was that fun!  They said I did well with the big dogs there, but small dog and cats are probably not a good fit in my new home.  Kids are an unknown because I haven't met any yet.  But given my "Gentle Giant" nickname, I'd probably be good with them.  Because I'm still young, I have great potential for learning a lot of things like commands and tricks.  Call my Foster Mom to meet me–I'm sure you will agree that I will be a great addition to your family!!
