Meet Lucius! (Everyone calls him Luca) He is just about the perfect pup.. has tons of adorable puppy energy but also is well-behaved when hanging out around the house. He's great with other dogs, big and small, but also is happy playing by himself with some toys.
Potty training is going extremely well. This is a very smart little dude! He understands and (sometimes) listens to commands.. he's getting there!
Sleeps well in his kennel at night, but sometimes wakes us up to go potty.  The good news is no mess in the kennel and he quickly uses the bathroom and then easily right back to bed. He also does well in his kennel during the day once Foster Mom figured out he prefers his kennel to be covered with a blanket and some soothing music next to him.
The last thing you should know about him is he incredibly loving. He wants to be by someone most of his waking hours and get pets and kisses as often as he can!


Lucius is from Texas. 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.
