Betsy, the vet tech caring for the dog wrote:Ed used to live with a family that has two small children. I'm not sure of their ages, but I know the father said his wife and kids were the ones that had the most relationship with their dogs. He likes to lean on people sometimes, so I'd be careful that he doesn't knock over a small child by accident.
He has kept his kennel clean and been going potty outside ever since he got back on his feet (he had a few accidents before he started walking again), but I don't believe he was ever allowed in the house.
I tested him with a cat, and he seemed mostly unconcerned.
He is about 77 pounds, but he's a little skinny so he's long and tall.
I don't know of any destructive tendencies since he's been in the kennels for the duration of his stay. We put blankets in his kennel and he hasn't chewed any up. But since he is only a year old, I would watch out for some puppy tendencies just in case.
I don't believe he is crate trained, since he was free out on the farm with his prior owners, but he has done fine in the kennels at the vet clinic.
Hope this helps a little.
