From the Foster:

Tiramisu is a 14 month old bundle of joy.  He responds to “Terry” and sometimes to “Tux.” He is very sweet, energetic, and will cuddle with you during naps.  Though we are working on him not jumping on people during greetings, he still does it if too excited.  A home without children is recommended, unless adults closely supervise their interactions.  He is responding well to “off” “no” or “no jumping” commands when he starts jumping.  After the greeting, he moves on and just follows you like a shadow or plays with his toys.    

He is smart and trainable, especially if there are treats involved.  Aside from the above commands, he understands “sit” “stay” “go night night” “shake” and  “over there” when you need some space.  He will sit and wait while you serve him food (with commands).  

He is well behaved.  We trust him when we leave home or go to bed and just let him roam free on the main floor.  He leaves items alone and there have been no potty accidents.  He is strong.  He does well walking on a leash only if there are no distractors.  If there are, he makes sure to let them know he is ready to play.

He loves too much.  When you leave, he shows signs of separation anxiety.  He will whine (and maybe bark a few times) for the first 20 minutes.  Then he stops.  This has improved dramatically over the first week we had him.  Also, we believe having another dog in the house helped him ease into being alone.  

Very sweet.  He does well with dogs and has shown no aggression at all.  He’s very playful though, so senior dogs (or lower energy dogs) may find him bothersome.  He likes to burn energy by playing with our 4 year-old bulldog and running around in the yard.  The only thing he dislikes, and we recommend not using with him in the room, is a Roomba.  He will bark and throw bites at it, we don’t know why.  

He is a great communicator.  He will let you know when he needs to go outside to do his business by gently nudging his head on you along with little whimpers.  He will also let you know that it is time for his dinner.
