Muffin is a five-year-old poodle mix. He is very friendly and loves to cuddle. His foster mom describes him as an "off the charts" cuddler. He loves a good belly rub and always wants to be near you.
He loves sleeping on your side of the bed or right by your head so he can be next to you. He has an adorable way of sleeping with all four paws up in the air. (He needs stairs to get up on the bed, too). He does need someone who spends a lot of time at home and also who understands that he does not like to be picked up.
Muffin gets very excited when his foster mom comes home from work. He does need a walk around the block both in the morning and evening. He loves chew toys and runs around the house with them before he settles down to chew them. He prefers to be left in the house rather than a room like the laundry room. He's great on a leash and does not need to be crated.
Muffin is looking for a stable home where he will be able to give and receive all the love he deserves. Muffin is ready for long naps and many movie nights with you!
