Bart is being fostered in Delhi, ON
Birthdate: May 5th, 2023
Breed: Mastiff X
Weight: ~100lbs when full grown
Dogs: He is very friendly and loves to play with all dogs. He does not recognize his own size (he is currently 60lbs), and likes to play rough. He does not currently understand social cues so other dogs will need to be advocated for to ensure he doesn't irritate them.
Cats: unknown (likely fine as he is young and impressionable and doesn't show a high prey drive with the resident chickens).
Kids: unknown (older/dog savvy children as he likes to jump up and lacks manners).
Strangers: Loves all people, does well meeting new people however does like to jump up.
Crate: crate training is coming along, when he first arrived, he had a lot of accidents, however he has now gone a few weeks without any accidents. He will whine if people are present but does settle.
Leash: Needs improvement, he pulls and jumps up, but overall is learning quickly to respect the leash.
Car skills: whines a bit, but mostly to be closer to the people.
Energy Level: Medium
Affection: Very loving and affectionate with all people.

Best traits: Bart is a total goofball who loves affection and plays well with other dogs.
Needs improvement: At almost 50lbs, this boy is going to be big and will need someone dedicated to training to ensure he ditches all of his rude puppy behaviours.
