Sounds like knocking at the door, dogs barking outside or on TV, and delivery trucks will get my attention, so I let the household know – it’s part of my job!
I am very affectionate and love to snuggle up to my foster parents. I don’t get on furniture (unless invited), which in the morning, I am allowed to get up on the bed for morning snuggle time. I love to snuggle, what can I say! I’m also a “Velcro dog”, as I like to be where my people are – either in the kitchen while cooking meals, sitting near them when playing the guitar or in the office – I like to follow them around the house and wait for the next activity.
Did I mention that I love children??? I do! I am very gentle and kind around them. I am fully housebroken, I don’t chew furniture or your shoes or slippers, only my toys , especially stuffed toys (I love to tear up stuffy toys)! I enjoy chew toys, digestible chew bones and having a toy in my mouth, especially if I get nervous or overly excited to see you. I don’t jump up on people.
Sometimes I get reactive, so we have been working on it with training. It may be a good idea that I get more training to ensure I don’t forget what to do. To help with my reactivity and anxiety, I am currently on medication which has calmed my anxiety and I feel much better.
My foster family believes the perfect family for me is one that wants a playful, yet loving companion who is willing to work with me on certain behaviors so we can all have a good life together. Because I worry, I need a family that can help me feel confident and safe. My home needs a fully fenced in yard where I can get plenty of exercise, off leash! My forever family wants a playful companion with a fun personality, is willing to give me plenty of exercise on a daily basis, such as walks, fetch time, jogging or swimming, etc. I can ride in the car safely, but I don’t particularly like it. I’m happy when we get to our destination! I need to be the only pet in the household, but I’m interested in meeting other dogs – my neighbor dog is my best friend! We play chase, tug and hang out together. I’d prefer a family that is around most of the day because I like hanging out with you. I am a super sweet beautiful dog. Please click on me if you think I’m the dog for you. Would you be my forever family?
