"He's a sweet guy he loves people he's minding very well right now so we're working with him on a leash so he's kind of starting to learn some of those things like how to walk on a leash, how to sit, it wouldn't take a lot more work to really get him to get those commands down." Ramsey said.

And once he has all that energy out, all he needs is a cool shady place to lie down and relax.
