Koopa  (M) is a 1 year old mastiff mix. He is currently living at a kennel waiting for a foster home.

Koopa is house and crate trained. He is currently living in a kennel waiting for a foster, foster-to-adopt, or adoptive home. He did have some issues breaking out of crates when he first arrived, however he overcame that and has been a great boy in the kennel. Koopa is a BIG BOY, and often doesn't quite understand that he is stronger than most other canines, so it's not hard for a little pressure from him to push open the door of some crates!

Koopa is great with other dogs and is very goofy and playful. He doesn't always understand his size, and does play rough, so he would be best suited playing with other large breed confident dogs, as he can intimate more nervous or reserved dogs with his big size and big play style. He has shown some prey drive for smaller dogs, and would do best sticking to his bigger companions. We have not cat tested, but at this time with his size and prey drive we are looking for a home without cats. 

Koopa is a big loveable goofball and loves all people. He still has a puppy brain and did not get much training prior to coming into care, so he does have some bad puppy habits like jumping up and being grabby, which is unacceptable at his age and size. He has had one incident of grabbing a staff members coat and playing tug of war which caused it to rip - due to this he is looking for a home wihtout kids or with older kids. 


Koopa is very food motivated and loves training, and has been going to a group training class weekly since his intake. He is doing very well, knows his markers, and continues to work on training daily with the kennel staff!

-Needs work: Koopa is a big puppy in a full adult sized body! He can be easily overstimulated and always wants to be part of the fun! He would benefit from conditioning calmness and place exercises, as well as working on his crate training and leash skills.
