Buddy and Rosco

These two full grown Males are Pals. They love to play with people as well as with each other. Because we socialized them early and often they are both good with people while they're on their leashes. I often allow children to pet them during a walk. We raised them with lots of love and have NEVER taught them to be aggressive. However, when they are in their own yard or house they are wary of folks passing by. At the same time they've never showed aggression towards guests we've had over.
