From the Foster:

Bonjour! Je m'appelle Pierre!

 

Pierre is a really good boy. He knows how to sit and lay down on command. Pierre loves the outdoors by walking around the backyard and seeing all the neighbors outside. He does bark when he is outside and sees someone walking past, but he mainly just wants to tell everyone that he would like some pets. He loves people and would love a belly rub from anyone. He does very well on walking on a leash and even understands that not everyone wants to pet him.  He’s not sure why though because he is so scruffy and sweet. He loves a good short walk by the lake. He has some trouble going on a longer than 30 minute walk. He does have severe hip dysplasia. This is a lifelong condition but the best thing is from him is get consistent exercise. Right now we go on two walks a day, one in the morning and one at night. He is currently in hydro-therapy and is making great progress. We are also working on at home exercise to strengthen his back legs. He loves to do them because he gets peanut butter and treats and he LOVES treats!

 

He loves other dogs and loves going to doggy day care & the dog park. I think he would do great with another dog that wants to play and be friends. He doesn't always realize that some dogs don't want to play with him. He does okay our cat. He tries to play with her a bit and follows her around. He is starting to understand that she doesn’t want to play. They both will lay by each other and stare. I think a dog savvy cat would be best.

 

He likes to chew on his toys/bones and is easily redirected if he is chewing on something that he shouldn’t be. He knows the word no and will back off most of the time. He is still a puppy and some obedience training would be great for him.

 

He is house trained but has had few accidents when we first got him. He knows that he should go to the door if he would like to go outside and he will bark at the door if he has to go potty. He does like to go in and out of the house, so I think a fenced in backyard would be best. He is not a huge fan of going into a crate. We have been keeping him in our spare bedroom with his crate and he does great in there while we are at work and at night. He does cry a little bit but settles down quickly.

He is a really good boy and would make a great addition to anyone's home!
