Unfortunately he is a kisser....Wife taught him to give puppy kisses when he was little. I warned her not to, since he was going to be so big, she regrets it now. He can cover your whole face with one swipe of the tongue.
He is very spoiled already by my wife. She calls him a primadona all the time. Very interesting breed, he is extremely smart and has about 30 or so different sounds he makes. He also can open door knobs with his mouth, knows how to get ice out of the ice maker on the fridge. He has unscrewed a 4"PVC cap on our septic cleanout. Dried out deer antlers are the only thing that lasts more than 15 minutes of chewing. He constantly re-arranges our furniture.
He is a handful, but has earned his keep more than once. He has a very intimidating growl, sounds like a bear when he is mad. At protection training, the trainer had to get a different bite sleeve due to the force of his bite.
The picture with the skull he is chewing on is from a 220# boar I shot last year. He likes to throw it in the air and pounce on it. He eats the equivalent of a whole chicken a day raw.
