XavierXavier Head

Xavier or Xavi is a large handsome black and tan male. At 14 months old he is still growing and filling out, and will likely end up over 90lbs when he is done. Xavi was confiscated by animal control after he and his sister repeatedly escaped the unsecured fencing of their yard and finally one day killed the neighbors emu.

Xavi has gotten along with all of the large male and female dogs in his foster home. Although it is guessed that he was formally an outdoor only dog Xavi has grown very fond of indoor life. He has not had an accident in the house, he settles nicely in the evenings, and is learning to sleep quietly in a crate at night.

While Xavi doesn't seem to have had any formal training, he knows sit and down. Although "heel" doesn't seem to mean anything to him, he is easy to walk on leash and doesn't pull. Out on walks Xavi only seems to have mild interest in the livestock we pass, but given his background, care needs to be taken with any livestock or small furry critters.

Xavi is a giant love bug. He likes to be with his people, and has quickly bonded with his foster parents. There were middle aged children in Xavi's previous home, but due to his size, he might be a little much for small children. Xavi is looking for a home that will continue his training and socialization and include him in daily activities.
