Meet Sputnik! This little guy will rock your universe! He is about 3 years old and only about 15 pounds. But he plays like a big dog and would love an active home. He would be a great hiking or walking buddy (although his legs are a little short to run along with a human). He gets along great with other dogs and even tries to play with the cat in his foster home.
Sputnik is settling in really well and learning how to be a good boy. He is very receptive to training, and in a few days of leash training is close to perfect on leash. He will do really well with someone who will spoil him but also give him boundaries. Rules and regulations make him feel safer and secure because he knows what to expect.
Sputnik is neutered, up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative.
