From the Foster:      

During the time we've had Tonka, he's been a BIG love bug!!  He's not had the greatest life, but it certainly hasn't got him down!! He thinks he's a lap dog and loves to give hugs and get belly rubs.  He's a gentle giant!!
 
He is currently living with 3 other resident dogs, 2 female and 1 male.   He would do best with other non dominant dogs - I don't think he is dominant but can be a little over bearing in his play :)  
 
Tonka would do best in a house without cats.  He does try to chase them and is very interested in them and very hard to redirect his attention.
 
We free feed our bunch, and he has had no food aggression. He also takes treats very gently.  
 
He is crate trained and once in his crate, he wines a little, but settles down quickly and takes a nap :), with no barking.  On a schedule he is house trained, too! 
 
He knows how to sit on command  and is working on walking on a leash, he does like to pull when he's on a mission to see something, but if there is nothing grabbing his attention, he will walk casually by your side.   
 
This dude is built like a Tonka truck ;) ! He is a big beef cake that is looking to be loved for the rest of his life!!  You will not be disappointed, this guy will give you lots of affection to show you how much he appreciates you rescuing him!!
