Found rurally and never claimed, Burt came to us with literally nothing ... zero training, zero anything. It's as though no one ever even looked at this dog. He gets excited easily and "flares", something we're working to tone down with the help of dog playmates and good daily structure on rules and commands. He may need more training, but the core of this fellow is a decent temperament! He likes people and is immediately affectionate, totally ignores the cats, tail wags meeting new dogs and quickly into play, and although the vehicle still scares him, he's learning. We believe he's on 2 years old.
