    My name is Sailor, I can be shy around new people, once I warm up to you, I’m an active love bug!

    My foster family would describe me as a shy boy with a big heart. I’ve learned that the foster kittens I live with, prefer kisses instead of play. It took me a while to realize the best snuggles were next to my human at night. I play very well with the other dogs I live with, and have even coaxed my older dog buddy to play with me on multiple occasions. I love Tug of War! I am still quite young, so a younger dog to play with or doggy daycare are both great opportunities for me to get out to socialize. I am currently working through some fear and anxiety towards new humans. I’m learning that new people are great and sometimes they even have some chicken strips for me! I’ve been working hard on this kennel training thing. I get a frozen Kong every morning in my kennel when my foster mom goes to work. I race her to my kennel as I absolutely LOVE my stuffed Kongs! I’m a very smart boy and I LOVE problem solving, give me a food puzzle toy, ball pit with treats or new environment and I have no problem exploring and figuring things out. I’d also be a great hiking, running, and outdoor buddy. Sailor is working through some separation anxiety and is doing well in his training/medical support plan. He has built up his comfort in kennel to 8-9 hours, and settles quickly, he does occasionally vocalize but is building up his comfort zone.

    If you’re looking for an active boy, that also wants to snuggle on movie night. That’s Me!
