Hayden simply put is a LOVELY dog! He does great with my resident dog and plays pretty gently for a puppy. He enjoys squeaking toys, chasing balls, wrestling and bouncing around and all puppy’s do! He likes

being at the party and going with the flow. He has not been around cats but imagine he’d be fine with them as he doesn’t seem to have a high prey drive.
Hayden is crated while home alone and at night (in our bedroom - he likes to be able to see his people when he goes to bed) so he's used to using it but does take a little while to get settled. Once settled, he is great in his crate for extended periods of time. We are still working on potty training, but he is doing great with it thus far. I have no doubt he’ll have it down in no time if we keep working on the schedule with him. He also is able to hold it throughout the night in his crate which is impressive! 
He is a very lovely little knucklehead who bounces around and flops his ears when excited, and loves to be held and rest his head on your shoulder and give kisses. He is literally the best snuggler, EVER! He’s got the puppy energy for about 10 minutes and then plops down to rest. He loves cuddling and napping with his people, always! This dog is truly the best of both worlds.
Hayden is from Arkansas. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
