Gibbs is a gorgeous lab/pit mix that I took from a family at their wits end with him. He was 11 weeks old and biting all 7 kids in the family...the vet and trainers told them to euthanize him, as he was so wild. I evaluated him, and took him home with me for some socialization, manners and training. He was horrible during the eval, biting every body part he could get his mouth on (including pulling my hair)...he also got very pissed off when something was taken from him, or if he was handled or held. He also tried to hump my arms (I was sitting on the floor).
He's now 16 weeks old, and has wonderful manners. He loves rolling over for tummy rubs, loves to be picked up and held, and enjoys handling. He is very clicker savvy, and will offer many behaviors for that click/treat. He no longer uses his mouth...unless he's kissing you with his tongue.
He sits to get anything (outside, food bowl, etc). He's crate trained, housetrained and good with other dogs. He plays with the friendly cat and leaves the un-playful cat alone. He leaves the rabbits alone too when they're out for a romp in the house. He is great off leash...but does pull a bit on his leash and collar. He usually walks with an Easy Walk harness so he doesn't pull. He knows sit and down, as well as other skills. Gibbs is outgoing and loves people of all ages, races, sizes, etc. He's been attending puppy class for the past 5 weeks too.
He can be pushy with other dogs, but it's getting better. Hopefully he'll be neutered in the near future, which will help with his behavior some too. He is a LOT of puppy...despite his good manners...so he'll need a pit bull or very dog savvy home.
