From the Foster:
You know how everyone says they have the sweetest and cuddliest dog?? Well they don’t because it’s really Walleye, no contest.
Things he loves: Walleye LOVES food. So much that he’ll steal it from where ever he can. I can’t blame him since he’s pretty skinny – it will be easy to get some weight on him though! He also loves to snuggle all over his people. He's still learning the good life so it may take some time to learn to love toys and playing - but he has some play instincts in him.
Things he does not like: If Walleye had his way he’s be near or on his people 24/7 – he hates to be alone. He’s not a fan of leash walking – outside can still be scary for him so he’d prefer to go out on his terms. He doesn’t mind the leash inside so I think once he gets used to the new environment he’ll be just fine on a leash.
Things I love about him: Walleye is so loving and extremely smart – it’s been a breeze to start on training. He gets an A+ in snuggles and adorables. He also is a pretty chill dude for being a young pup. He gets along great with other dogs and completely ignores the cat.
Things we are working on: Walleye is still learning basic manners and basic commands. He’s so smart though he’s picking it up quickly. We are also working on his confidence so the world doesn’t look so scary which will take some time.
Change is hard… all the new things he had to endure had a toll on his heart and it showed. He was so scared of this new place and new sounds and new smells, he didn’t even want to go outside! BUT he quickly warmed up to his foster parents and has spent a lot of time cuddling with them, on them, near them, all over them! As he gets used to his surroundings and builds trust with his foster people he’s venturing out into the world more and more. His heart is healing but whoever is lucky enough to adopt him should know that change will be difficult for this sweet dude. All he needs is love and patience – it will be more than worth it!
