Victor is a large, handsome Dobie who is a good dog in most ways. He had been adopted from an animal shelter and was then returned because he awoke from a nap, startled, and nipped the owner on her head. He also wasn't tolerant of her small dog. Many - or even most - Dobies don't tolerate small dogs or cats well, so we don't consider that much of a negative, and reacting when startled from sleep is not unusual behavior for most dogs either. Obviously we aren't recommending Victor for a home with small kids or animals, also not with owners who aren't strong, as he has a reputation for being a "world class puller." Though some people frown on using prong collars, Victor's ex-owner indicated that was effective in helping to curb his pulling too hard. He is about 3 years old as of December, 2021.
