From the Foster:

Groovy goes by Honey Bear in our house, because he's such a pretty honey color. :) I have had him and his brother "Psych!" aka Snow Bear since they were about 10 days old, and they came up with their mama from a shelter in Texas. Mama has already been adopted (yay!) but the boys were too tiny to get neutered at 8 weeks, so they had to wait until 12 weeks. 

Honey Bear is a very inquisitive boy. He has a lot of playful energy, and is very curious about everything. He loves exploring new places and new people. He has his cuddly moments also, but right now he's pretty busy. He's very SMART (yep, really!) and does great with potty pads (as long as he knows where they are). The great thing about his curiosity, is that he is definitely a self entertainer! He will sit in the giant dog bed in front of my fireplace for hours running around in it, and playing with his toys while I'm looking on. 

He is extremely socialized with other dogs, cats, and school aged kids. Because he is SO tiny and VERY underfoot, I don't recommend a home with infants or toddlers. Seriously, just a two year old tripping over him right now could kill him, and he doesn't understand to get out of the way. 

Their litter is my first one dabbling in Puppy Culture, and we have done a lot of stuff to work on their neurological stimulation, exploration, exposure, socialization and startle reflex to help them be more well rounded, less anxious and less fearful as adults. Studies have shown dogs in this program really are more well adjusted, and that first 12 weeks is a critical period in their development, acceptance and fear base. I think they have done awesome, even though we haven't gone 'hard core' with it. Please look into this program! There is a lot of neat stuff you can continue to do with them as they grow!
