ENERGY LEVEL: His owner describes Rambo as having a high activity level which matches what we have seen in the care center. Rambo will benefit from having daily mental and physical activity to keep him engaged and exercised. Owner reports Rambo likes balls, squeaky toys, toy bones, and rawhide and he likes to play chase.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (suitable for an adopter with some previous dog experience, especially in the behavior outlined below) _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression: Rambo barks when people are yelling and things in the home get heightened or chaotic. He gives clear warnings when he is uncomfortable (barking) but if prevented from moving away (grabbing collar) there is a potential to escalate to higher-level warning behaviors and possible fear based aggression. It is important to make sure Rambo stays under threshold and is not pushed to escalate further to a bite. He may do best in a calmer household as he has reported aversion to arguing and yelling.
