“I’m wasted on cross – country! We dwarves are natural sprinters, very dangerous over short distances!” – Gimli, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Similar to my dwarf namesake, I am very stout and short with cute little stubby legs. So I don’t take up much space and I’m a mature fella, around 8 or 9 years old so I don’t require a ton of exercise. The thing I love most in the world is to cuddle up on my human’s lap and get lots of loving. I am very affectionate and I get very attached to whatever person is taking care of me. As I’ve been warming up in my new foster home I’ve become increasingly playful with my foster mom and the other dogs. I am still getting used to going for walks and being at the dog park. I get pretty scared if a strange dog comes up to smell me outside of my home but I never show my teeth, growl or ever try to bite – mostly I just try to run away from them. My foster mom has had to keep me on leash even in off leash areas if they are not fenced because I do tend to try to run if I’m scared. I have been making a lot of progress though and it’s only been a couple of weeks! I’m great with other dogs but my foster mom has not seen me interact with cats yet. So far I have already learned how to use a dog door and I appear to be completely potty trained after only minimal training. I have so much love to give so if you are looking for a small dog to be your snuggle buddy I am the perfect match for you!
