Tux can be a little unsure of new people and places. However, after he takes a minute or two to size up the situation he is relaxed, silly, and snuggly. Tux's greatest love is other playful dogs. He loves his dad bunches, but also loves to play with other young, silly dogs--this will be a requirement in his forever home. Tux's other great love is the garden hose, something we just recently learned.
Tux has never really spent much time with cats and kids. We think Tux could get used to cats with some training. Our impression is that he would be curious and maybe even afraid at first. As for kids, Tux would do best with older kids who are able to give him a minute or two before jumping right in with hugs and kisses. With time and more socialization, this aspect in Tux's personality could change for the better. He just isn't 100% there yet.
Tux is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartwom negative, and microchipped. He is also solidly housebroken, but has never been crated. He does well being confined to one room of the house when unsupervised.
