My foster Mom describes me as being extremely loving and loyal. That means I take my mission of being man's best friend, seriously! Riding in the car is very cool and I am perfectly behaved. I get in and stay seated the entire time with no fidgeting around. While I'd be okay as an only dog I really do appreciate having a fur buddy to pal around with. And, I get along with other dogs large and small. Do you have toys? I like to play with toys and I like to play with children too. I have lived with and around children and been a complete gentleman!
I am completely house and crate trained. I know how to use a doggy door but if you don't have one of those I will go to the door and let you know I need out. I am so reliable that at night I don't even have to sleep in my crate! No cats please as I just can't seem to get the hang of a dog/cat relationship. I am a happy, energetic, goofy, boy that loves attention and snuggling!
Taking leash walks is fun. However, one of my most favorite things is to go jogging with my person! I am very good on lead. My foster Mom says I am gentle in every way! Most all the time I am a quiet boy, not a barker by nature. Some times I may bark if startled by a stranger. But that is a good thing!
In the past weeks I have learned the commands; 'sit', 'come', and 'leave it'. I also understand what it means when Mom is busy and says "get out of the kitchen". Occasionally she may have to say "get down" off the bed, and I know what she is talking about! When you consider my entire bio it becomes clear I am as close to perfect as a dog could possibly be!
Please say your heart has room for me! I have been wishing and wishing for a fur-ever home! Tell HBR you are ready to meet MAXIMUS - that's me!
