    I’m on the lookout for my new family, and would love to find someone that is experienced with dogs like me that need a bit of extra polishing. I’m a beginner as far as training goes and would love to take a few training classes to help us get acquainted with each other and to give us a good foundation to start our new life on! New situations can be a little scary for me, and my rambunctious side comes out in full force once I feel safe and comfortable, so my family should be comfortable with managing me in both scenarios! I will require a home with another playful, fun dog as this will really help me get out of my shell. Don’t expect me to cuddle with you right away, as I am still learning to be comfortable around humans, and with things like being leashed and walking. A yard will be ideal for me, as it will give me that safe space to run, play, and really learn to dog. Give me time, and my personality will really shine!

      Shy and avoidant when unsure and in new situations, but we have seen a shift towards excitability and arousal as he gains more confidence.
