From the Foster:
He is an absolutely amazing puppy! Such an adorable snuggle boy with a cute curled up tail that wiggles all the time, sweet gentle kisses, and the best snuffly little puppy noises when he burrows up into your neck!!
Casper loves everyone! He is incredibly friendly and loves to sit for treats and pets from everyone he meets! He is also very playful. He loves toys of all types and is gentle when playing and isn't particularly nippy for a puppy-- he easily redirects to an appropriate toy. He hasn't chewed anything he shouldn't and doesn't chew excessively or destroy toys. He is always happy to play with you but is also unusually good at entertaining himself appropriately with his toys and will go off to his kennel or dog bed for a nap when he is bored or tired.
Casper has done well meeting other dogs--he is great right away meeting new puppies and smaller dogs his size. He has great social manners with them and plays appropriately and absolutely loves it. When he first meets BIG dogs he is just a little bit shy --understandably he is a smaller puppy! If the big dog is calm when they meet he is just fine and is super excited to play. He takes cues well when a dog doesn't want to play with him.
He has been introduced to our cat who he finds interesting but not overly so. He listened well when kitty said-- no playing please!
Casper does well in his kennel. He sleeps mostly through the night just fine in it, as long as he has had a good day of playing and exercise and has gone potty before bedtime. He chooses to go into his kennel if he gets scared by a loud noise, etc.
Casper is also doing well with potty training, for a puppy! He knows the door he needs to go to and generally lets us know he needs to go out. He is a puppy and so needs frequent potty breaks as all puppies do but he is smart and learns quickly. He will need to be watched closely, and be on a leash or in a well fenced area, when he has potty breaks as he tries to get as far away from his "home" as possible to avoid pottying where he "lives".
So far, Casper doesn't seem to bark much, at least at our house and is pretty quiet in general. He has learned to sit for a treat when he meets people and is gentle taking treats from children and doesn't jump up a lot so I think he could learn to be gentle with smaller kids with practice as he gets older.
He is really an amazing little guy and sooooo cute!
