I am a vibrant, sweet, and inquisitive puppy that is extremely food motivated. I am especially fond of long walks in the neighborhood and I have the potential to be a great running partner, as I love to romp in the backyard! I’m a curious lover boy who has so much affection to give!
I love to play with my foster brother. My foster brother is slightly smaller, very chill, and has the manners to tell me when to back off when I get super excited and too eager to play. He is a good example of a possible permanent companion for me. I have not had socialization with other dogs outside of my foster brother but I would probably be fine with calm, appropriate dogs.
My foster family doesn’t have children; however I may be fine with older children that are respectful of my space and the need for me to warm to people at my own pace.
I had a hard, early life and have begun to adjust and accept new people into my life through my foster humans. I will do best in a home without men. I am working on learning to trust males and other strangers. Although I can be scared and overwhelmed by loud noises, I am very trainable and take re-direction well. I am potty trained and have been working on my sitting and crating skills. I recently lost my left eye and am still getting used to seeing without it.
I need strong, durable chew toys like antlers or bones that will keep me busy for a few hours at a time. I also enjoy hard plastic food puzzle toys that require me to work to find the food and tug toys that I can play with and work on pulling apart.
Although I love to cuddle, I am not a couch potato and would therefore do best with a more active family who has some yard to play in. I would prefer a home where my forever human(s) could provide me with a great deal of stability and help me work on my anxiety and trust issues with other humans. An understanding family who could be patient with me when I get scared would be simply amazing!
