I would love you more than you can imagine.
Kylo was originally rescued from a crowded Texas shelter with a broken jaw that he'd received from blunt force trauma and a skin condition that left him looking pitiful. Life became infinitely better for Kylo when he was rescued came to New Jersey, where he was adopted a short time later, but sadly had to be returned to because the family found that they just could not give him the time, training, and attention he required. When alone, he developed some destructive behaviors that we are working on correcting. He is a chewer--he needs lots of chew toys to keep him on the right track. He also needs a confident handler, an owner with experience in dog ownership and training. Because of his rough start, Kylo gets nervous very easily in social situations. It would be best if Kylo was put away if you had company. Having an established, confident adult dog in the house will help with this, but that dog would also have to be okay with Kylo's sometimes rough play.
Kylo is a very energetic pup, who plays hard and loves harder! Even though he is about 45lbs, he still thinks he's a lap puppy and will spend all day in your lap if you let him. Because of his nervousness, combined with his energy, size, and strength, Kylo needs to be in a home without children, where there will be very low traffic levels from visitors. Kylo needs an adopter that is very active but also around for him - he does have some nervousness when left alone, and can get into mischief if not monitored. He would do best with owners who work from home and can take breaks to exercise him. He knows to go to the door when he needs to go potty, but he still has occasional accidents and needs to be walked regularly. He also needs an outlet for all of his energy and excitement.
Kylo is very food motivated and will do pretty much anything you ask of him if a treat is involved. He also loves to ride in the car.
