From the Foster:
Little Man is an affectionate boy who loves to be around his people! He may be a little shy at first, especially outside his home, but he warms up pretty quickly. We are working on his socialization skills by going on runs to PetSmart where we get to meet new people. He follows me pretty much everywhere I go in the house.

Little Man loves to play. He has moments of a lot of energy where he wants to play, play, play! Then when he is tuckered out, he just wants to snuggle on the couch. He loves to wrestle with other dogs and maybe “too much” for an older dog that doesn’t like to play. With his high energy play, he occasionally gets wound up and may pinch with his front teeth. Because of this he is probably not the best fit for small children (probably under 6 yrs).  He loves his toys and loves to play tug with you.

We are working on his housetraining. He does go potty outside (but wants you to come too) or he uses the pee pads in the house. He has been crated with an open door to the crate and will go in willingly. He just needs a little bit of work with a closed door and get him used to being actually confined.

A small heart murmur was detected when he was less than a month old, but after a trip to the U of M this month, he has been cleared and there is no murmur detected. We expect his adult weight to be around 20-30 lbs.

This adorable little man has stolen the heart of every one that meets him.
