Santos is a distinguished gentleman looking for a quiet, adult only home without a lot of commotion. He can take a while to get comfortable in new settings and is looking for a patient family that will give him the time and space he needs to settle into his new home. Rain or shine, Santos enjoys leisurely morning and evening strolls sniffing the grass, bushes, trees, and other dogs and watching the world go by.  He is great on a leash.  At home, he enjoys relaxing and listening to the television and music and he is always nearby.  He has no problems sleeping in his own bed at night.  He knows basic commands such as sit and come.  He is house trained.  Santos does well with dogs his size, but is not a fan of sharing food or treats with them. He is food motivated and would love to learn tricks for treats.
