My name is Loki and I am an adorable mix of bulldog, German short hair pointer, and several kinds of little terriers. I’m 3 to 4 years old, neutered, up to date on shots and 35 pounds - easy to pick up but substantial for cuddling. I am smart and very affectionate. For the most part I am low key but I do have a bit of zip. I am looking for my forever home.
I have been living with my foster family for a while learning lots and making many friends. I recently graduated from my first training class and still practice every day. My trainer saw how hard I worked and how much this kind of training helped me and she said that my adopter can have a special discount to take the class with me. This is important because I need to continue learning how to stay calm and confident when distractions (like other dogs that I don’t know) come up and I need to trust that my adopter knows what to do to help me.
I have great house manners and am a good listener. I am house trained and I never chew anything but my elk antler. I am gentle with my toys - my favorite is a squeaky red bull. I’ll fetch it if you throw it but I don’t need you to entertain me – I can prance and play on my own. I don’t mind staying in my crate when my foster mom is not home and I like to go into my crate to relax when eating. Usually I am snuggling in my favorite chair or following foster mom around or, best yet, snuggling up to her when she sits down. I love my smaller foster brother and sister dogs and we play or do antler chewing together. I am very gentle with them but play a little rough with my rougher playing dog friends. Although I end up liking most other dogs , I need to get to know a dog a bit before I feel comfortable. My foster mom respects that about me and does not take me to dog parks or into situations that are too overwhelming. You see, I am a bit fearful and can startle quite easily. I have some leash reactivity so I really need to be adopted by someone who has some experience and will take things slow. I probably am not a good match for someone who has not had a dog before. Although I’ve done fine with children on an occasional basis under supervision, I am more comfortable with minimum chaos so cannot be adopted to a home with children. I am fine with cats and I would love to live with another dog but I would also be okay as an only dog.
One of my favorite things is to go on hikes and when it is warmer do a little swimming. With my foster family that only happens once a week or so. In the interim I am happy with 2 nice walks a day and some indoor play. I would not mind more exercise. If my new person is a runner I might want to run but a mile or two with her/him.
If you think I would be a good fit with you and you are able to take good care of me, please submit an application to Bella’s Bully Buddies so we can meet.
