From the Foster:

Biography: Tiny is what I refer to as the "doggiest" dog. He loves chewing on bones, ear scratches, cuddles, walks, and chasing after balls. He is not super attached to a single person but loves everyone and thrives when he has a routine schedule which I am unfortunately not able to provide him.  Not knowing where he should be or when causes him anxiety but he adjusts easily to new environments when provided consistency (whether through routine, by being with the same dog friends or owner, or environment he is familiar with).  He is not strongly food motivated but loves walls, balls, and fresh bones/chews. He also has a special attachment to the panda bears from IKEA ($5/bear). It doesn't matter WHICH panda bear, as long as it's one of the ones from IKEA ;)  He rarely barks but when he does it is usually at another dog or at his own reflection. Tiny isn't a huge fan of being picked up, it makes him nervous, but he loves cuddles and scratches and will nudge your hand to make sure you know what he is looking for. He is great with kids, enjoys running around and tolerates being pet and even tugged on a little but prefers if they don't take toys or bones out of his mouth while he is playing with them. He has never shown any aggression toward any children just gets very sad and confused when this happens.  Like with people he loves any dogs he has lived with and will cuddle up with any of them who tolerate it but is not specifically bonded to a single dog. 


IMPORTANT: Tiny is scared of eating and drinking out of bowls so will stretch out as far as he can to get food and water and stay away from the bowl. If his tag hits the side of the bowl he gets very startled and will stop eating/drinking.  I got him a flush tag for his collar which has helped a lot!
