Foster comments: He loves to cuddle and will lay in bed/on the couch with you for hours. He seems to have a good concept of what are the "cuddle chairs" and the "non-cuddle chairs," as he is mostly independent when I am working, but when I go to bed or to watch TV, he is all over me.
He is "well-behaved, but not obedient." Does not really know any commands-- I have tried to train him but he is not treat motivated. He never does anything mischievous though.
He snores pretty loudly sometimes, but generally sleeps pretty soundly through the night. If you are a deep sleeper it wouldn't bother you. He sprawls out on his back wherever we are-- whether we're at home, taking a break on a walk, out at a brewery, etc., if you leave him for a minute, he will make himself comfortable. Likes birds, rabbits, frogs, etc., but does not chase. He just freezes up and gets into staring contests with them. He walks with a J Leash the whole time.

We will do our best to set up a volunteer transport for your adopted/foster dog to within 2 hrs of your location. If you want to transport your dog by air, you must make arrangements yourself.
