Vivacious, tenacious, and courageous, I'm a lively and independent dog. I prefer to make my own decisions, but I will listen to you if you make a good case. What I really want is a partner to share in my adventures. I have been told that I'm seemingly tireless and inquisitive, and that I thrive on action and adventure. This is true. I'm an energetic dog who will need daily mental as well as physical stimulation to be on my best behavior. I'm not the kind of dog who will be satisfied just sitting around the house all day. For me, boredom can lead to frustration, and frustration can lead to destructive behaviors. I'm not proud of it, but it's true. I'm usually good with kids, but my friendly overtures might overwhelm the little ones. I think I would be an ideal companion for an active family with a good sense of humor who wants entertainment-and possibly some mischief-all in one dog. If you love me, but can't take me home, please ask about sponsoring me while I wait for my perfect match.
