Boots is a very smart but timid boy. He loves to play and likes toys, balls, chewy treats, and bones. He also loves blueberries and chicken! Boots also loves the chance to run around at the dog park!
Boots other favorite past time is cuddling up on a doggie bed or making a nest out of some blankets. He loves to cuddle with his human. Boots likes to go for walks and is working on not pulling as much. He will continue to need some help with training in his new family.
He's good with other dogs and lives with several in his foster home. He prefers female dogs. Boots appreciates his pack at his fosters home and would do best in a home with another dog. Boots is housebroken and will let you know when he needs to go outside.
When Boots first arrived, he was cautious of new things, but his foster family has helped to show him that there is nothing to be worried about! He is still timid when he meets new people but will warm up, given some patience and time. Boots is a laid back boy who just wants to find a family who will love him!
