Picture this: the heart and mind of a labrador in a compact and bridled body. That's me! I am a ball-obsessed, outdoorsy, food-motivated, nose-oriented, cuddly, no-one-is-a-stranger-for-long kind of dog. On the flip side, I can be a bit overly exuberant in my greetings and easily distract-able. Like the beloved lab!

Since coming to my foster home, I have been learning a lot. I've been picking up cues quickly, leaning into a routine with kenneling, and learning how to be a good housemate. I live with 4 humans, 3 dogs ranging from 55 to 9 lbs, and a cat I have yet to meet. Unfortunately for a fun guy like me, the dogs here are all seniors. I tried to get each of them to play, but was denied. So we happily co-exist. My main source of fun is walks and going to sniff spots for long games of fetch.

All in all, my foster thinks I'm a fun and considerate companion still working through the last of my puppy exuberance. If you are looking for a pal of this variety, please apply so we can meet!
