Valentino is one of our most affectionate dogs, he just wants human contact all the time and will rest his paw on you while he sleeps. After adjusting to new people, he is confident and playful and loves people and attention. For his age he still acts the puppy at times. Everyone that visits the shelter falls in love with Valentino. On the leash he is very polite and stays close when you let him off the leash too. He's an all-round good boy that gets on well with other dogs and humans but can be reactive specifically to large men. He can be protective and will be reactive if he senses a threat. He should not be in a home with children or a less-confident owner.
