    I’m ready to play with you and crawl into your heart.

    I am a gorgeous, smoochy guy with a big smile who is great with new people and I love everyone I meet. I am looking for someone who understands that I sometimes find it hard to share toys and food; but with a little time, you’ll find I’m fantastic and loving! There are a few things that scare me, but when that happens I back up and bark at it because that helps me feel powerful. Being in a kennel isn’t too fun, I am learning that it is a safety thing for me; however that doesn’t make me like it more. My foster mom is impressed with my knowing to go outside to go potty – or she is really good at timing the breaks from play! I have learned so much from my foster siblings in regard to manners and am learning that food is not always taken fully away so I don’t need to panic about not being able to finish it off.

    Let’s set up a play date so I can crawl into your heart and into my furever home.

      Dirk likes to bark for attention, when he is lonely, or feels he has been in his kennel for too long. We are working on that, but he enjoys the sound of his own voice a lot.
