A bit about me!
I'm a sweet natured, loving and gently little boy. I'm petite in size, at 9lbs, with gorgeous and soft teddy bear curls. I have rich darker coloring from my mom and a curlier coat and shy temperment from my dad. I was entirely too cute to pass up as a potential daddy dog, but my shy nature has meant that I will do better in a family of my own than passing that trait on to puppies. I'm a fantastic addition to an all adult home. I get along well with other dogs and have a submissive nature, so I'd be a great puppy pal for an existing canine as well!
Am I potty trained?
I'm doggy door trained, which means I'll consistently do my business outside if I have access to a doggie door. I'll need more work to transition this training to classic "potty training" but I have such a firm foundation of doing my business outside that it will take a lot less time than a younger pup. Be forgiving of me, restrict my space until I'm proving that I've got the hang of things and use consistency. I'll figure things out faster if you limit my ability to have accidents by keeping your eye on me, taking me out frequently and making good use of my kennel training.
Do we have special diet needs?
Nope! I'm an easy keeper! I'm being free fed Kirkland Salmon and Sweet Potato mixed with Kirkland puppy food.
What is my bedtime regime?
I head out for a night time potty break and then my humans put me in my kennel. I settle right down, like a good boy, and go to sleep. Please pick up my dog food and water about two hours before my bedtime to help me hold it in the night. If you have other dogs, I'd love to have my kennel near them. If not, I'd love to have my kennel near your bed.
Am I leash trained?
Yes, I'm leashed trained and enjoy walks. All of my walks have been done on an acreage setting, so seeing traffic, meeting strangers and dogs I don't know will be entirely new for me. You'll need to have patience and gentle confidence to help me process all of these new things!
Do I have any bad habits?
Most of my life has been spent in a kennel setting with access to bones, dog toys, friends and my own huge grass yard. So within that realm I'm a well trained little boy! However, there is so much more mischief I can get into in a house setting. So please restrict my space so you can keep an eye on me, finish my potty training and teach me what is mine and what is not. Essentially, I'm still learning good habits and have a soft nature, so I'll be easy to train.
Who would be my perfect love match?
Obviously, I need to go to a home that is willing to be patient and kind to me as I settle in and figure out my new life! I have so much love to give my humans but with my incredibly shy nature, it may actually take me a couple months to warm up, show affection and really settle in. So I need a patient family who is prepared to invest in me long term. I are so excited to go on walks and learn what house life is all about, so I need someone special who has that time to spend with me. That means I'd prefer someone who doesn't work full-time. I'm also very dog social and LOVE playing with my puppy pals if you have a dog already or want to get one in the future. If you don't, no problem, I'll still be fine on my own. I'm submissive natured and social, so I won't cause any ripples but that also means if my playmate was too dominant and wide I may decide to opt out and avoid them.
