He is a 1 year old terrier (possibly american dingo) mix, weighing 30lbs. He loves his kong toy, stuffed animals, balls, ropes (pretty much everything).
He loves any sort of treats and I have him on Science Diet kibble. We have 1 cat and 2 dogs and he plays very well with them. He loves being chased by dog friends and playing tug of war. He loves walks and the dog park, but still gets a little nervous in public. He was on the urgent list at the arlington shelter due to fearfulness. He is nervous around new people, but is warming up quicker and quicker. I don't know how he would be around kids. Older, mature kids would be best. He does not like to be alone and would do best in a house (no apartments) with a dog friend to be with during the day. He is definitely an indoor dog, but loves to play outside with his dog and human friends. He knows, sit, down, stay and we are working on shake. He is crate and potty trained and can either sleep in his crate or in one of his dog beds. He also loves snuggling up next to him humans for a nap. He is all legs and ears :) He is a bit of an attention hog and nudges me when petting my pups. He always wants to be by your side smothering you with kisses.
Quirks: He talks. Not barking, but a groan/whine type of thing when he wants to snuggle or go outside. He is a bit mouthy. He's is still in puppy mode and he likes to mouth everything, but hasn't destroyed anything. He also clicks his jaws when he is excited. It sometimes makes people nervous, but he actually does it when he is super happy and excited.
