A Little Bit About Me
Izzy is a lot of dog, anyone can see that because he is way too large. But he also has a lot of good dog inside. With a solid weight loss program and understanding, Izzy will give you his really big heart.
We recommend that any children in the home be mature teens. He is not used to being restrained and becomes worried about the normal handling it will take to keep him healthy. Brush him everyday for a short time, after he has had enough exercise to be a little sleepy. Fifteen or twenty minutes at a time is good to start with. Clip one nail a day – just the tip – just before you put his dinner down. Talk with your veterinarian about developing a good relationship between Izzy and her/him.
Izzy has a ton of energy and wants to run and play. He will become a good sports buddy, hiking pal and/or retriever. He has not had the benefits of learning in a class environment, so take advantage of what Marin Humane has to offer. Walking nicely on a leash will be very helpful.
Other dogs are very appealing to Izzy. Be sure they are well matched; this dog really wants to run and play. As he becomes slimmer and more athletic, you should find that his energy increases and his exercises needs will as well. He can be too much for smaller dogs.
Take a chance on Izzy. Yes there is some work to do with him, but he has so much to offer. He bonds strongly with people, is very smart, and will be really handsome and athletic. See this dog for what he is inside; you can’t beat that.
