Dash is a fun and affectionate little guy. He bonds really well with his handler and enjoys doing everything with them. He is quiet inside the home and great on leash. He is generally housebroken but if left for more than 4 hours will use a pee-pad. Dash LOVES cats, by this we mean - Dash MUST live with a friendly & affectionate cat because that would just be the ultimate dream for him. Dash is also great with other dogs and very non-confrontational around them. When he meets dogs, even mean ones, he will try to nicely say "Hi" and present them with the opportunity to play.
Dash has come a long way since coming into foster care after being dumped by his previous family. He is great meeting new people and will allow his handler (whom he is bonded with) to groom him and pick him up. That said, Dash still does not like strangers to handle him too much and may exhibit guarding behaviours around his toys and food with them. For this reason, he will need a home with an experienced family.
We are seeking a furever home for Dash with no children. Must have good experience with guarding behaviours and dogs that are sensitive to manipulation. Dash would do well in an apartment and doesnt necessarily need a fenced in yard. MUST have a dog friendly cat.
