Dave is an affectionate little guy that loves his people. He can be a little reserved at first, but once he warms up he is very friendly.
Dave is crate trained and housebroken. He is very affectionate and LOVES his people. Dave loves to snuggle in during a movie or just simply hang out with his people. He loves to sleep with his people or in a bed nearby. Dave is ok with individual visitors in the home, but does become nervous around bigger crowds. His foster family kennels him during such times so he feels safe and secure.
Dave is a mature gentleman and prefers to not be asked to play or roughhouse. He would be best with a mature person or family that are calm and not expecting or asking for a high level of interaction - more of a mellow environment where Dave would cuddle up to his humans and enjoy a quiet time together.
Dave does get along with cats and other dogs, but does not like to be around hyper dogs that get too excited. If they run and play too rough, Dave becomes nervous and uncomfortable with them (or 'the cattle dog in him COMES OUT'). Older dogs that lay around would be best buds for him.
Dave does have a lot to say. He will great you in the morning when you wake up, let you know it's time for his breakfast and will keep you warned of any activities inside or outside of the house that you should know about! A home with no shared walls would be best for this little talker!
He walks well on leash, he doesn't run away when off the leash or loose in the yard. Comes when he is called and really minds pretty well. He is a barker but will settle down with a grasp of his collar and a firm 'no'. Dave rides well in a car and was not scared of recent fireworks.
