How old is he, and how much does he weigh???

Well, his teeth are sparkly white so I'd guess not over the age of 2 but at least a year old due to his physical maturity. Currently he's 59lbs but needs to be closer to 65. He's got the coat of an outdoor dog and under it is a thin dog. The folks who had him were doing lots of small meals with Innova puppy food to fatten him up. So we have no idea how long he's been on the run.
Though it appears that he's been outdoors he'll crate readily for treats tossed in the back and settles down fairly well in one. He never once offered to escape from the couple's 4 foot chain link fence yet he hates being left outdoors in our 6 ft chain link pens and even with me present in the back yard today was constantly seeking a way out. He contemplated jumping the little fence and tried to knock the gate off the hinges and barrel through it as well. So he's trying to develop a good case of separation anxiety right now (yipee ). Lucky me gets to take him out on a long line for potty breaks.
Do you know what his prey drive is? At work I have the name of some folks looking for high drive dogs for security work.
K if you find you might be interested, let me know.

Oh trust me I am interested in talking to you as well as to the Dutchie folks that Katrina knows. When I took him it was with concern for public safety and a fondness for the breed. I have the experience to deal with him so I stepped up but with our own dogs and the other 2 fosters, I would not mind handing him over to someone else who also has the capability to work with him.
