Sly is about a year old and about 19 pounds. Our best guess is he's a Corgi or Doxie mix. He's doing well with housetraining and is accustomed to being crated when left at home but would make a different choice if it were up to him. At night he sleeps happily in a crate, and often puts himself to bed. He's a gentle, happy, playful, adorable little guy. He's been instantly comfortable around new dogs, and shy around new people. He was very unsure/shy initially in his foster home, but those days are long gone. He took a few weeks to really settle in, figure out the routine, and decide that people are good. Now, after almost 4 weeks, he's a happy little cuddler who follows his foster mom from room to room. He's quiet in the house. In the yard he does like to warn you when there are new things happening outside the fence. Sly wrestles with gusto with the resident dog that is 3 times his size. He loves going on walks, riding in the car, and romping/sniffing around the backyard, all with other dogs. Sly is a follower rather than a leader and we are requiring that he be adopted into a home with another confident dog that he can follow and learn from. He needs a home that will be patient with his initial shyness and will be comfortable taking it slowly, working to build his confidence, and allowing him to adjust in his own time. He's a sweetheart and is well worth the effort .
