You can’t find a better dog playmate or listener than Stockton. He is on track with leash and potty training and his foster mom expects within a few days of his new home he'd be house-trained. He is young, but learns fast. Just today he learned how to give paw in under 5 minutes. He shies away when new people try to pet him, but is extremely loving and cuddly to people he lives with. He is fine with cats and has started to take on some cat characteristics, from his foster-cat-brother, such as pouncing. Stockton is 5 months old and just over 20 lbs. He is expected to grow to 40 lbs. He’s 1 of 7 little pups from a high kill shelter in Texas. Looks like Lab and maybe some Aussie mixed in when considering his siblings’ coloring. He has sugary sweet disposition and has great recall for when he's gone too far away. If you say 'No' he stops on the first no and is easily redirected to a toy or rubs from his human. He's always looking for his human when at the park with other dogs. He just started playing fetch and every week he becomes more confident in new situations. He tends to follow the lead of the dog he is around to determine how to react to different situations. He sleeps through the night in his crate and is good about chewing his toys and not human items.
