Dozor (say [DAZOR]) is about 5 years old (he was born in the winter of 2014 in the building materials market, in severe frosts, all his brothers and sisters died from the cold). Dozor means “surveillance for the purpose of guarding, reconnaissance”. This name was given to him by the commander of the military unit in which Dozor lived for 5 years.
Dozor faithfully performed his service and fully justified his name – he protected the territory, warning with a voice about the approach of outsiders. But in the summer of 2018, the higher management of the facility ordered the dog to be removed. None of the staff wanted to take him. So Dozor became homeless. He currently lives in a temporary home.
Dozor is a medium-large dog with long thick hair. Weight 29 kg, height at withers 58 cm. Dozor has a slight problem with his back right paw. After careless movement or physical load he may limp. Many years ago, he was hit by a car and he suffered minor injuries – bruises and lacerated wounds. He was given medical care, but there was a problem with the paw – arthrosis of the hock. Treatment is not required, but it is necessary to eliminate serious loads on the paw. Dozor is graft, neutered, chipped.
Dozor is a very active and energetic dog, he likes long walks, games with a ball and plastic bottles. This dog is like a perpetual motion machine. He is ready to play all day without a break! Loves affection and communication with a person, but unobtrusive. Friendly to all people, good attitude to children, but with small children behaves carelessly, can accidentally hurt and drop a child. Obedient, well trained. Prefers natural food, loves both canned and dry food, eats dog treats with pleasure.
With other male dogs behaves suspiciously, if the other dog shows aggression, Dozor can get into a fight, but behaves tolerantly with calm males. Dozor in not interested in dogs as friends or companions, he is completely human-oriented. Chases cats in the street. Hunts on rats and birds.
He has never stayed alone at home, because we have a lot of dogs and once Dozor had a conflict with another large male dog, so when we leave the house, we leave Dozor in the aviary. It is possible that the first time he may mark in a new house, especially if there are other dogs, because he has a highly developed territorial behavior. This episode was at the beginning when Dozor was taken from the streets and then it was repeated when a new dog appeared in the house. Now this problem is in the past.
He walks well both on a leash and without it, but at the beginning of the walk he pulls the leash, then he calms down and after 15 minutes he goes slowly. He knows the commands “sit”, “give me a paw”, “to me.” Perfectly behaves in a car, he jumps into the car himself, he is not sick in a car, he behaves calmly during the drive. He behaves well in the groom’s office, patiently endures all the procedures for the care and treatment. He is accustomed to 2-time walking. He adores squeaky toys and balls of any size, can play with toys for a couple of hours without stop. He is simply obsessed with toys!
Dozor is suitable for energetic people who like an active lifestyle, preferably for experienced owners, and preferably in a house with a fenced area, where he could realize his unspent energy.
