Affectionate dogs like me are cuddly and love snuggling and giving kisses. I might be a little shy or bashful as I adapt to a new environment, but that should be easy in a home with moderate activity.
I love to be busy, both physically and mentally. I'll enjoy seeing and doing things with my new family, and prefer an active household. Energetic dogs like me need a companion who can provide adequate mental stimulation and exercise, such as running, hiking, or playing Frisbee.
I participated in a behavior program for Possessive Pooches because I've exhibited guarding behaviors when people approach me as I'm eating or playing with a valued item (like a delicious chew toy). My new family will receive support and materials to help make my transition to a new home successful. If you have any questions about me, please see a staff member or volunteer.
