Meet Deuce. This handsome guy is 6 going on 2. He has a lot of energy and loves to play with other dogs at the dog park (one of his favorite places). Deuce is incredibly smart and learns commands with ease. He automatically sits to have his leash put on before leaving each day for his trip to day care. He can be a little slow to warm up to strangers but once he does be prepared to play and give lots of affection. Deuce’s foster mom is constantly entertained by his funny quirks from carrying a stuffed animal outside to potty to putting her to bed every night. One of his absolute favorite games is to chase a laser light and he’ll continue until you can no longer hold your arm up.
Deuce walks well with a gentle leader and has been to pet stores, busy downtown areas, and trail hikes with no problems. He does not bark at other dogs in public and will patiently wait while you brag to strangers about this handsome fellow.
Deuce has no food aggression but due to his high energy would be best in a house with older children or adults only. He also loves other dogs and would love a playmate. While he does like some treats, he will do just about anything for ICE CUBES! This is actually how his foster mom taught him some new tricks.
Deuce is a home protector and will alert you to anyone at the door or outside. Since his foster mom lives alone she finds this a positive trait. However, if you have many guests, some training to curb the barking would be necessary.
His foster mom’s favorite part of the day is when they go to bed and cuddle. Deuce “asks” for petting and will actually move her arm so that she can pet him. He also has the cutest animated ears ever.
