Sinatra is so sweet and loving to his people! This charmer and his beautiful blue eyes will happily greet any guest in the home and be their instant best friend! He’s very gentle to people even when playing, he doesn’t destroy even the softest of toys and has no issues with resource guarding. He is not so sure of other dogs at this point but would be a great family dog in a single pet household. This guy isn’t a big fan of the crate during the day but is very chill and not destructive in the house at all when left alone so that shouldn’t be an issue as he’s happy to sit down with a bone and take a nap when you’re gone. He doesn’t bark when left alone and is currently living in attached housing with no issues. He does however go into his crate at night and enjoys sleeping there. Sinatra is house trained. We have not tested him in the car yet.
While I have not specifically tested him with kids, he is very happy around people and not aggressive at home, so I don’t see that being an issue. He still needs to work on his walking and leash manners when he is out for walks as everything is very exciting and new to him. He’s very intelligent and has the capability to learn. Sinatra needs a good leader and would be a lovely addition to a family/couple or individual.
