Dalton was adopted from us in 2013, but due to a change in his family situation, he was very sadly returned to us by his heartbroken owner. He is a very large dog, but he is the most laid back and easy going guy ever. He loves to play outside, and thinks rain puddles are lots of fun. He also likes to entertain himself in the yard by tossing a toy up in the air. Dalton's favorite thing of all is to be with his foster family, enjoying their company and doing whatever they are doing. He likes to go for an easy half-mile walk, but also enjoys a good nap. Dalton has a strong prey drive, and will chase any critter that invades his yard. Because he is so big, he can easily bump you over without knowing it, so small children would need to be stable on their feet. It's not that he intentionally knocks a child down, but when he is looking for a head rub or an ear scratch, he will come and rub against you and could easily knock a little one over. He is never rough with his foster family, and is just as gentle as can be. He knows most obedience commands, and is happy to cooperate. He does love a reward and enjoys treats. Dalton loves his foster family dearly, and would be a great companion for anyone wanting an older, super easy going guy. Just to clarify, his foster family doesn't want adopters to think that "easy going" means slow or disengaged. They feel that Dalton is a strong deterrent and a great protector. He just doesn't get worked up until there is something to get worked up about. He is a big, strong boy, with a wonderful heart. Beautiful Dalton is looking for a home where he can be loved and happy for the rest of his life.
