Meet Garfield. Garfield has never met a person he didn't like, including the vet! On walks, which he also loves, he wants to meet every human so they can take a moment to pet him. At home he likes to cuddle and play with his humans. His favorite toys are his tuggy, flirt pole, frisbee, and/or jolly ball. If you work from home he likes to lay quietly nearby and look out the window. If he sees someone walking, he gives a little howl to let you know (If you ask him to stop, he will). If you go into the office when you come home from a long day at work he will always greet you with a wiggly bottom and kisses.

Garfield adventures. He loves car rides, especially if you let him stick his head out the window. He enjoys camping and hiking. He will even swim as long as he can see and touch the bottom. Garfield absolutely LOVES the snow. He will run around in it as much as he can until he gets too cold and wants to come inside. Once he's warmed up he asks to go out again. He even loves to eat ice cubes!

Garfield is housebroken & crate trained. He knows sit, stay/wait, place, high five, paw, touch, free/ok, off, leave. He is a high energy and would really benefit from an owner with herding breed experience.
