Roko, 2, has mastered several cues, is house-trained and crate-trained, is social and friendly towards new people, and can walk well on leash or jog alongside a scooter. He occasionally gets distracted, by tumbleweeds or a stray blowing leaf, for example. Most days, though, Roko is as confident as they come. He will vocally introduce himself to everyone in new environments. He does have a serious resource-guard reaction, such as with food, and will need to go home with adults who can manage that behavioral issue.
