I'm Eddie and I like to cuddle! I am a snuggly dog for sure. I get excited when someone sits down because I know I can sit on their lap. I love treats. I am very motivated by them which my foster mom says is great because I can learn new tricks. I don't love my kennel, but I tolerate it pretty well. Throw a treat in there for me and I run right in. I love other dogs. My foster mom has two, one that loves to play and we chase each other and snuggle together and one that likes her space, I know well enough to leave her be. I love to play with toys especially chew toys.
I need someone to work with me on what mom calls bad habits. I have never lived in a house before so even though I am older I still need some potty training. I am getting better, but sometimes forget. I also mouth objects. I even do this to mom's hands. I don't bite down I just put things in my mouth, I didn't get much love so I'm learning what that is.
From Eddie's foster mom:
Eddie is awesome! He is so snuggly and likes to be with his people. He attaches to someone pretty quickly and will follow you anywhere you let him. He does so good with the other dogs in the house and loves to try to keep up with the big dogs. He is good in his kennel and very quiet. He is still learning where to go potty and how to ask to go outside but is making progress. I'm not sure how he would do with cats (although I think he would be great) or children, but I think he would just need to figure out the rules. I think he would make a great partner for any family. He is very smart and sweet! He does wander if allowed but comes for treats.
