From his foster mom:
He is good on a leash and loves, loves, loves walks and playing with balls and toys in the backyard. He has a lot of energy.
He is very quiet - rarely barks. One woof in the back yard yesterday and then quite a display (appropriately so) when a man crossed the street diagonally and headed toward us. He doesn't lunge at dogs, bikes, people, cars, or cats when we are walking....squirrels are a whole other story!
He is very loving and understands boundaries (he could get into so much, given his height, but he doesn't). We're working on "off" (jumps up on people sometimes and sometimes puts his paws on the counter, being nosy). A 5 and 7 year old stopped by on Sunday and he was fine (typical) with them! :)
He doesn't react to his name or basic words (walk, treat, eat, outside, car ride), let alone any commands. His hearing is fine, though. He is learning "leave it" and "no" quite easily. He is not food or toy aggressive - and he let me retrieve a sock from deep in his mouth without blinking an eye (snatched it pre-walk and ran, our first night...doesn't do that anymore).
