Thanks for all the positive replys. Talon has now learned how to walk on a leash after a week of dragging me around. And he absolutely love my grand kids. Stays with them everywhere they go. i live on 20 acres so he has lots of room. I believe he will be fine. Will keep everyone posted.

Thanks
RC

In answer to the mental damage questions. I'm not sure, i just assumed that being chained for that long wasn't good for him. But as we work with this wonderful animal I now believe he is in pretty good shape mentally.

I agree with everyone, he is a great looking boy. I'm glad you found him.

Gorgeous dog and congratulations on finding a wonderful, new family member!

Be sure that you don't give him too much freedom. Dogs do need boundaries. Look up Nothing in Life is Free and also clicker training (as someone else suggested).

Keep us posted and best of luck with him!

Thanks for taking the handsome boy in. As for jumping up, there's many ways to train him away from it but stepping on their rear paws, LIGHTLY of course, will make them hop down and stay on all fours. You want to cause a discomfort and not pain, I can't stress this enough, and that should keep him on all fours.
