Hi guys, my name is Chowda! 

If you’re looking for a fluffy ball of energy, look no further! I’m a bouncy guy who loves toys, wrestling and pretty much anything active. If you’ve always wanted a running or hiking partner, I’m your man. Hyper is my middle name.

I love playing with my foster brothers. We will wrestle and play around for hours. I like rough play that can sometimes be too much for a puppy or smaller dog. While I love my brother, it takes me a while to warm up to new dogs.  Slow intros are a must!  I am not a dog park dog. My interactions with other pups need to be carefully monitored until we become friends. An ideal home would have another active dog who wants to wrestle and play with me. I do well as part of a pack. However, cats are way too exciting for me, so a cat free home is a must. 
I love my humans so much. I want to be close to them and give them lots of cuddles and kisses. I like to sleep right between their heads at night. I’m hoping I go to a home where they will also let me sleep in the bed. I am such a loyal boy, I will be your very best friend. 
Meeting new people can be stressful for me, so it’s important that we take things slow at first. But once I feel safe around them, I will love them like they are a member of our family! Kids are scary for me though and it’s best that I go to a child free home.  I know basic commands like sit and lay, and yes, I do respond to   Chowda . I have a lot of energy and love spending lots of time outside, because of this, I really need a house with a fenced yard. 
I am such a special boy and I can’t wait to find my forever home!
