I am a noble dog with a shiny coat and soulful eyes.
I am family a man. Well, a family dog anyway. I love my people and am happiest when everyone is together- whether we are hanging out watching a movie or going on a hike. I am affectionate and like to show my love with a gentle body lean, a nuzzle, and if you happen to be lying on the floor I would love to lick your face and lie on your chest. Is that cool? I know basic commands and really want to please you. Treats are great, but I’d just as soon have a belly rub, back scratch or praise. I am curious and can be a little clumsy but am told that is sort of endearing. I love walks and am very polite on a leash.  I am also developing a new found love of playing fetch.
I am also a sensitive dog and a bit of an introvert. Listen, I love you, my people, but I don’t always love hanging out with your friends. I love when we go on adventures in nature and strolls in the neighborhood, but I find mingling with the crowds at Home Depot and the Farmers Market to be a bit much. Cool? Cool. Don’t get me wrong, with good clear guidance and direction I can meet new people and be polite. But maybe when you have a big dinner party I can just hang out in my own space? I also really don’t like when you leave. I know you have to do it sometimes, but I miss you a lot. I am working on that and working on my abilities to stay calm and relaxed when I am alone but it is still hard sometimes. Just because I love you so much and like I said, I’m sensitive. Hey, we all have our issues, right?
In sum, I like hikes in the woods, drinking out of rivers, snow, snuggling up in a pile of blankets, belly rubs, romping around, and my family (including kids over 12). I don’t love dog parks, dog day care, cats, crowds or when you leave.
I am a loyal, handsome, sweet dog with personality and so much love to give in search of a family who will provide love and belly rubs in return.
