From the Foster:
Trouble wants to please his humans and is very person orientated. He takes treats very gently and has never met a person he does not love!
Trouble also has a love for jumping in the shower or chasing the hose as you spray water - its actually quite endearing. He also loves going for walks and might pull a bit at first, but once you get into a rhythm (and start going on walks consistently), he settles right in.
Trouble also LOVES to play fetch. He will actually bring the ball back to you!! He will drop it on the ground in front of you and sit and wait for you to throw it. He loves when you loft it and he can catch it on the first or second bounce. He is patient and will still bring it back while you learn ;)
Trouble does sometimes love his humans too much and wants to protect them from other animals. He does this by positioning himself between himself and what he thinks is going to take you away from him (usually this happens most with other dogs). He will just try to keep them away from you. This will diminish over time, but its something to note if you have another dog in the home. He's lived with other dogs and absolutely loves them, and after a few days and being consistent with not letting him guard you, he will stop.
He also does well with my cat. I think he would chase a cat if they were fearful and running away, but only to play, not to hurt them. He is completely house trained, but might mark sometimes if it’s a new area. This too wont last but it might be something that happens in a new home initially!
If you think Trouble would be a good fit, I hope to hear from you!
