What is something you love about your pet? What else should someone know about your pet?: 
He is the sweetest dog and I love him dearly. Giving him up is breaking my heart but it is what is best for us both. He has not been trained properly I admit I do not know what I am doing. Ever since I became pregnant and had my son who is now 3 months ( a happy surprise)He started growling at me and has bit me once not breaking the skin but concerning with a baby around. He is very mouthy which comes from his breed and the need to herd. I cannot give him What He needs or deserves. It takes him a bit to get comfortable with a man but once he does he is full of love. He barks a lot and jumps on guest but not me.He has not been properly socialized and has not had enough exercise. Oliver is a very smart pup who just needs the right person to work with him, love him, show him who's boss and give him the right amount of exercise daily. I have to fight him for the spot as alpha I lose often. He needs a pack leader. He wants to serve and loves to learn tricks. He needs discipline and duty. He is good with my son doesn't try to attack him but he does growl at him if he gets in his space. He really is a good boy just need a patient kind knowledgeable owner who will love him in all the right ways.
