From his foster: "Pawlie LOVES attention and is especially cuddly at night. He's a velcro dog that likes to be wherever I am. He does not have a discerning palette - he'll eat anything." He's a great guard dog and will bark to get your attention. Pawlie is good with most other dogs, but I've noticed him being selective. He is very agile - I've seen him leap over a large crate, and he's managed to climb on top of garbage cans (and almost over a fence!) He is crate trained and housebroken. I have not seen him get car sick. He does not fight a bath, but we haven't tried nail trims yet. 

He's very interested in the cat, but has not broken into the laundry room even though he easily could. He knows his name, but he also thinks his name is Dobby, Sabrina, and Solace - whenever I call one of them, speak to one of them, or try to spend time with one of them he'll come running and push them aside for some attention. Pawlie is a counter surfer. He's very strong and gets really excited when you start playing with him, so maybe no small kids. He's ok in the crate, but will whine if he thinks he's missing out. Pawlie has eaten slippers, insoles out of shoes, pulled up strands of carpet, and knocked loose a few boards in my fence - he has the potential to be destructive, so he needs A LOt of exercise and attention.

Pawlie has already been fixed. Our trainer recommends a six-foot fence - since he's shown above average agility and drive.  He does not do as well with strangers (because of his protective nature) or intact males. He would need proper introductions and time to acclimate. In addition, his fur-ever human will need to continue to discourage negative behaviors like chewing on inappropriate objects and counter surfing.
