Hi! They call me Pops (short for Popsicle). I live by the code "Play Hard, Sleep Hard". I am a guy that doesn't like surprises and would prefer to live with a nice person or couple. I really hate those electric vehicles - they creep up on you making no noise and I usually must bark at them when they surprise me! Every morning and afternoon I like to play with my stuffed owl. I can throw it all the way across the room by myself but I would love for you to throw it for me.

I love to ride in my foster dad's convertible and go for long walks. I can't wait until the weather clears up so that we can go to the beach! I do not like impolite or pushy dogs and therefore don't really enjoy the dog park but I do go to doggy day care and love my friends there.

My foster mama says I'm really smart! I've already learned Sit, Down, Come, Stay and Shake! I also like going through the tunnel that my foster sister uses for agility training. I am crate trained and my crate is my safety place to go when I am pooped out. I'm not going to lie, I've been known to put myself to bed in the crate at 9:30PM.

I might do OK in a house with other dogs but it will be very important that we make sure we like each other first.

If you are interested in a best friend that loves to cuddle in front of the tv, go for long walks and pina coladas (nonalcoholic of course), then I am your man!
