From the Foster: On the first day we got this sweet boy, we nicknamed him Pibble and it's stuck ever since! He is the most gentle, sweet, and cuddly puppy we have ever raised! Pibble loves blankets, cozy pillows, and sleeping in! In the morning and after naps he does his best to hide under blankets and avoid waking up. He also loves to play with toys, and chew on nylabones (he can only have the flexi puppy kind to avoid hurting his jaw).
Pibble does great with people, dogs, and even cats! He's very respectful and calm, so everyone accepts him and enjoys his company. He was once attacked by other dogs, so he's a bit timid around new dogs at first. Places like dog park make him nervous, but he's slowly improving. Men also make him a bit nervous at first, but once he gets to know them he will bond! Because he can be a little timid, he would prefer no children or older children who know how to be respectful with puppies!
We are still working on potty training, but he's about 90% of the way there! He doesn't always want to go outside in the rain, but that's understandable! He makes up for it by being very quiet and excellent in his crate!
His little tongue always hangs out of his mouth because he was born with a jaw that's a little different, but it just makes him extra adorable! He has no idea he's different, and it definitely doesn't slow him down! He can still eat and drink normally, he's just a bit more dribbly than some! He'll need to be rechecked by vets around 6 months old to see how his adult teeth are growing in, and whether he will need an extraction.
