Bio: Please read Vader’s entire bio.
This very large, very handsome dude is Vader. For the past year, Vader has been undergoing structured training and behaviour therapy with his foster, Ryan at ‘K9 Outcomes’ (which is a kennel-based foster home).
Vader is *mostly* a big, sappy, moose of a dog. He is a great companion… vigilant, loving and protective of the people around him. He is food motivated, great in a vehicle and good on leash.
Vader has made great progress with training and therapy, but he does still suffer from separation anxiety. Although he has become quite content in his kennel-based foster home, we know changes to his home location, routine and his leader(s) may cause him to regress for a short time.
Being an extra large, strong-willed dog, Vader requires a strong, vigilant family who will provide consistent, structured exercise and mental stimulation.
Vader’s ideal home will have absolutely no cats or other critters, and he will require a safe and secure space to be left when left home alone.
Ongoing training with Ryan at ‘K9 Outcomes’ will also be an **adoption requirement** for all applicants who are interested in Vader.
