Dog has the following compatibility qualities: not appropriate for an apartment and may be too much for a first time dog owner

Grover is good with other dogs but needs a slow introduction because his immediate reaction is to play.  He puts is paws over the back of the other dogs and that can sometimes create issues with the other dog.  He plays rough and needs some training.  It's not in a fighting way, he just gets really excited.  He can be loud in his crate when he wants out, but he is currently crated near a dozen other dogs.  He is active and needs exercise but settles nicely.  He is great off leash and has great recall.  Smart boy who wants to please!  Will you be the person to give Grover the family he has never known?
