From the Foster:

Crate - he doesn't like it but he goes in with a little convincing. Does cry for about five to ten minutes. Right now he spends roughly five hours in his crate and hasn't shredded the mats or messed it. 
 
Kids - he does awesome with our 7/5 year olds. His tail is the only thing about him that is dangerous.   He lets them squeeze and lay on him and loves every minute of it. 
 
House training - so far only one accident and that was most likely more our fault. 
 
Cats - untested (most likely would chase)
 
Dogs - he does great with our beagle. They eat side by side with close supervision, but he has yet to growl, lift a lip or raise his back hair. Testing with bones soon because he loves bones lol. Little dogs are untested at the moment, he sims interested in them in a good way but doesn't really know his size. Tonight was a big test for him. While on a walk a smaller pitty got loose and charged him. He didn't show any signs of aggression (even with being confined to a leash and another dog charging him). Once nose to nose they had a stare down but thankfully the other owner was able to grab the leash and pull hers back. Once she did that her lil guy went nuts snapping and growling. Papa looked up at me with a look like "can u believe this guy" which made me laugh. He did keep a close eye on him until we were down the block always staying between me and the other dog. 
 
Does need obedience training but he is learning basics like sit and come. He does well on leash but does try to pull from time to time. He does well when told to stop pulling but if he wants to sniff something for now your going to have to let him because he turns into an anchor. He does well with a harness but as for now doesn't tolerate the gentle leader (muzzle). 

All dogs are in individual foster homes throughout the Twin Cities.
