We got Ramsey from the SPCA in July 2014. They estimated his age at 8 months to a year. He is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed. He is a beautiful dog, with lots of energy. He is very friendly, have never seen him show any sign of aggression (to animal or human). We have two small children now. Although he would never hurt them, he is a little boisterous and excitable when they go outside, and so they are a little scared of being jumped on, or run over. He has been for some obedience training with us – but often his excitability makes him a little difficult to manage. He would probably benefit from more space than we have, and while we used to walk him daily – our schedules have changed and we aren’t able to get him out as often. This has been a tough decision for us, but we think Ramsey will benefit from a family that can really make him a part of theirs, and has the time and space that he deserves. He currently sleeps inside, but would probably do well outside in a comfy kennel too – if there are no storms. He is scared of thunder. We currently have him bathed or groomed every 6 – 8 weeks.  He is housetrained, obedience trained & walks well on a leash.
