From the Foster:
This guy is so loving and sweet but still has some insecurities he is working on. Humans haven't always been the nicest to him so he gets a little nervous around meeting new people (some not all). Calm and slow introductions work great if he seems a little nervous about someone, then he warms up nicely....and of course treats ALWAYS help, he is VERY food motivated. He is kennel trained and actually seems to love being in there, often napping in there when we leave the door open. We kennel him when we are at work during the day and overnight as he does seem to have accidents if left out too long without being let outside. Although he’s almost 2, he does still have the puppy tendency of occasionally chewing something if left unattended. One quirk he has almost mastered is being afraid of stairs. He is comfortable with a few steps but it might take a little practice to get use to more...although again with some encouragement he overcomes! Sticks is a quick learner, mostly because he loves treats and will do anything for a treat.
He hasn’t been around kids much but we think he would do great in a house with older kids if they don’t mind getting whacked every now and then by his excited tail and a few doggy kisses! The only barking we have seen from him is when our dog barks or if something scares him, but once he investigates he’s all wags!
Come meet this lovable dog who is just as happy to run, play, and explore, as he is to cuddle up on the couch or bed and nap!
Sticks was recently treated for heartworm disease but is feeling much better now. Please let SHH know if you have any questions!
