Do you love redheads? I, Andy (#2796), am a beautiful, young, neutered male with lots of energy to keep you entertained and make you laugh. I would love to adopt someone who likes to jog every day, go for hikes or long walks and is home most of the day. I am a very loving and affectionate dog and really need to have a back yard, so that when I get the zoomies, I can run laps freely!
I am housetrained and know several commands, including sit, down, find it, and shake and have almost mastered roll over. I am very food motivated and can follow commands easier at home where it is calmer, but I also need to have a person who has good control of me so I don’t get overly excited and then become mouthy. I need to know you are in total control so then I can learn to be in control of myself. That is something I need work on. I’m still learning to listen where there are lots of distractions, like on walks. Right now, I’m working with a great trainer who is teaching me how to greet other dogs nicely.
I am crate trained and will go in there on my own if the door is left open during the day or night. I also love dog toys and Kongs. Currently, I take a drug called Prozac which helps me relax.
I need a forever friend with dog experience who is willing to continue my pawsitive reinforcement training and teaching me to better control myself. While learning with you, it is best I don’t go to dog parks or daycare at least for now. I’m thinking I might be happiest kicking back in the country where I can have zoomie space and not have to be so social.
I absolutely love, love, people!!! I love to snuggle and get lots of attention. Scratch my belly and chest and I’m yours forever. Can I get in your lap too? We’re going to make a great team!!
Adoption fee: $350 plus $35 microchip fee
Andy is being fostered in the Portland, OR area
