Aurora, IL

This is an amazing 1.5 year old dog. Incredibly affectionate, very smart, handsome, calm, interested in pleasing people, excellent on a leash for his walks, and loves to ride in the truck. Would love to go to work or travel with you.

He had a tough start which came with some anxiety, most of which he has overcome through practice and daily routines. Fantastic progress in a few weeks.
LOVES all people. Full body wags, flops at their feet for belly rubs at first meeting.
He needs a home in which someone is around most of the time – he’s a real people guy. Handles a couple of hours in a crate OK, but still doesn’t like being alone in captivity – he’s happy sitting alone on the deck so long as he know where his people are.

For now, slow progress towards other dogs (he had bad experience with them as a pup). Likes to flirt with my females, but not so much with boys.

He’s ready to make some dog-smart family very happy if they can start slow with a good understanding of his world view.
