From the Foster: Let me have the honor to introduce you to Mr. Capone. One of the biggest love bugs you will ever meet. He loves to give you sweet sloppy kisses and cuddle with you on the couch. He will lay there and watch all your favorite Netflix movies, even if they are all chick flicks. He will cuddle as close as he can to you and watch over you while you are sleeping by laying right next to you with his head resting on your body. He LOVES all other dogs, even my little fluff ball who cannot always be the nicest to other fur competition in the house. He recently had a slumber party at a friends house and discovered he also has room in his big heart for cats, too! Anything furry and fluffy Capone is willing and able to snuggle with :)
He loves to go for car rides and get his daily walk in. He is currently learning how to use a gentle leader, not a fan, but he is getting there.
Now the area that Capone needs special attention to is that he is true to his breed and feels the need to protect his house and family. I can take him on walk and he is fine around other people. Bring him into a friends home to visit and he is just fine. But if someone comes into my yard or house, it is game on and is bound and determined to not be on the losing team! He needs slow introductions to people in his home AND a fenced yard. This is easily managed, but you do need to be aware of this tendency. A home with an 'open door' policy might not be the best for him! He really is the sweetest boy, just cannot fight the urge to protect the ones that he loves.
If you feel you would be a good fit for this young gentlemen , fill out an app and set up a meet and greet !!!
All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
