From the Foster:
He is a super lovable, very friendly guy. Sometimes not always coming off as the smartest or fastest dog, but he sure has a lot of love to give. He was kind of uncertain when we first got him, but he warmed up to us very quickly. He had a couple of accidents in the house the first week we got him, but he's mostly outgrown that. He is very laid back and doesn't mind just laying out in front of the fireplace or finding a spot next to you on the couch.
He's very dog friendly (unsure on cats as we don't have any) but he hasn't met any dog he doesn't want to just play with or lay next to. He lives with a resident dog who he loves to wrestle and play with in the house. He has made it to the dog park a couple times before his heartworm treatment prevented him from doing so and he did well. He was recently treated for heartworms, but is feeling much better now! Please let SHH know if you have any questions!
He's learning the basics in training, he knows his name (that took a while!) and he knows sit. We are also working on him jumping up to greet people, and to steal food off the counter or table. He has been known to steal food when he thinks it has just been left. I think food must have been scarce given his weight and the fact that he chows down his dog food in record time!
I'm not sure what his past looked like, but I'm guessing someone yelled at him because if you yell loud enough (like when he has stolen food from the table) he will cower down and sometimes pee on the floor. Seems to happen more with males than females, although he's not afraid of anyone outside of the yelling.
He is definitely learning what a loving home looks like and he would do well in probably any situation. He does lay on the couch but usually sleeps on his own bed on the floor at night, he has ventured to my bed a couple times but it doesn't seem to be his thing. He will walk up to you and give you lots of kisses to let you know it's time to get up and go out. We do crate him during the day as he would probably find something fun to chew. He's still in the chewy stage and we found he really enjoys socks, shoes and remotes. He wasn't super fond of the crate at first, but now that he's healthy he pretty much understands that he only goes in there when we aren't home.
Overall he's just a good dog who needs a home that will shower him with love.
