Meet Bandit

Bandit is a beautiful one year old boy weighing in at 22lbs.

An affectionate dog who enjoys belly rubs, Bandit's foster says he is still “full of puppy” and likes to keep them on their toes. However, each day it is becoming easier to manage his energy.

Bandit needs lots of exercise and attention, so his perfect home would be with active owners who wouldn’t leave him alone for long periods of time.

Bandit’s foster is working on his leash skills so that walks will become more relaxed. He is excited to explore new areas and no longer having reactive outbursts to dogs he meets. He does well on the harness but needs the halti when he gets excited.

Bandit would likely enjoy athletic activities such as agility, lure coursing, racing, and could eventually visit dog parks once his adopter has control, so that he will respond to their direction. He understands commands and is in the beginning stages of sit, stay, down, come, leave it.

He shows no signs of resource guarding of his food, toys or people and doesn’t display any aggression when meeting strangers. He’s great in the car. A playful young man, he likes to play fetch, with his toys, playing tug with rope and loves any blanket he can nest in. He is a very good natured and sweet dog.

A smart dog, Bandit is learning how to manage the intensity of his energy and when it is appropriate. He is also learning how to calm in different settings and is now taking regular naps without direction. It seems the safer he feels the more relaxed he is becoming.

This young boy has made good strides on his house-training, peeing when he is out but having an occasional poop in the home, and his foster is paying attention to recognizing his “signs”.

His energy could be overwhelming for other dogs, so he would suit as an only dog or in a home with another small dog that can tolerate his energy. His experience with meeting a larger dog indicated that he was not comfortable. Bandit has a very high prey drive and we would not recommend him with cats.

Bandit is pretty laidback when it comes to food, grazing rather than gobbling, and takes treats gently. He doesn’t get anxious at the vet and isn’t afraid of loud noises, the broom or the vacuum cleaner.

When it comes to sleeping, he’ll like your bed or to crash on the furniture after a day of activities. Also, he looks forward to his night routine and with minimal direction is sleeping in his crate and coming up to the bed in the morning.

Bandit doesn’t show preference between women and men and would suit an experienced young or older, active, single man, woman, couple or family with older, dog savvy and responsible children (he has lived with a 12 year old boy). He needs an experienced adopter who has patience and understands that he is still a young dog who is learning his way.

He would best suit a rural or country home. An apartment setting would be unsuitable as he may bark when left alone and needs quick access to a backyard to expend energy.

His adopters need to understand his high activity level and need for exercise. Adopters that work from home or are retired would be ideal as he spent most of his day alone in his previous home and was crated as punishment. Bandit can be an escape artist and needs a securely fenced yard.

Bandit will need an adopter who can provide the support that he needs to be successful or someone who is willing to work closely with a trainer. He does really well with proper direction and positive reinforcement. When he becomes over excited he will calm with direction.

His fosters are willing to give help, advice and support to Bandit’s adopter as he adjusts to his new home.

Bandit is being lovingly fostered in Campbellcroft, Ontario, and his adoption fee is $525. He is neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccines.
