I’m a slender little thing, and I’m in my gangly stage a bit late so I seem tall for my little frame! I am a super sweet puppy boy and I always look like I’m smiling or laughing – when you talk to me my expression brightens even more as though what you’re saying is the best thing in the world. My tail is always wagging, and I just want to be touching you somehow all the time! If you lay on the couch, I’ll lay on your legs if you’ll let me!
I’m great with kids, excellent with other dogs, and cats are just fine with me. I ride in the car well so trips would be fine.
I cannot be left alone yet – I will chew up everything in sight if you leave me. It’s my way of saying, “please don’t leave me again”. I will also do my business on the floor if you leave me. I had accidents in the beginning of my time in foster care, but I am doing much, much better now, though I’ll need continued training.
I do not like the crate, and I will harm myself to get out of it, so no crates for me at all please until I can be properly trained with them – this will take patience and time. I will happily sleep on the bed with you all night long with no accidents and I’ll stick to my area of the bed too. It makes me feel secure and happy to be with you.
I am going to be one amazing dog for my new family if they commit to loving me and continuing training. I am really smart so I will learn fast. I need positive reinforcement, and a gentle voice – loud voices do not help at all, and will only make me fearful. I love being petted and that is enough for me to know I did a great job at something!
