Meet Princeton

Princeton is a 130 pound puppy and behaves just like any other puppy but doesn’t know his size. He does get bursts of energy where he might jump on you and while it may be cute for a small or medium sized dog to to that, it’s not that cute when he is much taller than you so continued training is a must. He is not aggressive AT ALL but too much for children. Exercise helps keep that under control but if there are a couple of rainy days he needs activities.

During the day he may take things in the house and think they are his toys like toilet paper and magazines.
As soon as the sun goes down Princeton is another dog. He actually shuffles his feet to go outside for his last potty break.

Princeton is not crated except for meal time and is fine in a crate for short periods of time but gets frustrated in a crate.

He sleeps in his chair every night and is a good boy.
