Carbo is a "tall drink of water." He is a handsome young dog who is very affiliative with people and enjoys interacting with them. He walks amazingly well on leash.
A dog like Carbo should go home with people who have had experience with working breeds. This means, the adopter was the actual caretaker of the dog rather than the animal was a family pet when the adopter was a child or was a pet who lived with a relative.
It is imperative dogs like Carbo have the opportunity for mental enrichment and to release their physical energy. If their mental and physical energy needs are not met or not channeled appropriately, this can lead to behavior challenges which are frustrating not only for the adopter, but also for the dog.
Just as lovely as he is with people, Carbo can be a bit of a dingus to other dogs. He is the quintessential "fun police." As a result, dog parks, or gatherings with a lot of dogs present may not be optimal settings for Carbo. Adopters should also understand that Carbo can get a bit mouthy during playtime so we don't recommend that he goes home with younger children.
