From the Foster:

Cruze is a smart little ball of energy. He is very playful and always looking for something to do. After a tough day of “working” (playing) he loves to snuggle up with his foster parents on the couch.  

True to his breed, he wants to work and please his owners. If he can’t get the energy out, he can become a bit of a Tasmanian devil in the house. Luckily, he lives with a Siberian Husky who has been teaching him how to be a good puppy. Cruze loves to play with his Husky brother in the backyard all day and go to the dog park on a daily basis. He is a bit cautious meeting new dogs but it doesn’t take long to warm up. Cruze also lives with a Lhasa Apso and a Chawinnie. He thinks it’s fun to chase/heard them so we are working on that.

Cruze may be behind in his training but he is very smart and has learned a lot in the three weeks he has been with his fosters. He is 99% house trained and very seldom has accident.  The door to the back yard is open most of the time when his foster parents are home and he’ll go outside on his own when he needs to go to the bathroom.  Cruze doesn’t care for his kennel and will not go in to it on his own so his foster parents have to pick him up like a baby and put him in there. Once in the kennel he is ok, it’s just the anticipation of going in that he doesn’t like. At most, Cruze is in his kennel for no more than 4 hours. At night, he sleeps in the bed with his foster parents. It only took 3 nights for his foster mom to allow that.

Cruze is looking for an active forever home that understands his breed. He can’t live on the leash so he will need a fenced in yard. We think he would do best with another dog so he can play and get that energy out but an only dog would be ok if his owner can get him to the dog park or on runs every day.
