Humerus (aka Hume or Homer) is a sweet puppy around 7 months old and loves attention from his humans. He would be happy to be a lap dog to get lots of affection, but also enjoys sitting outside in the sun while he chews on a toy. He will gather all of his toys into one spot to play with, but in true puppy form, will get distracted, leave them and look for a chew bone. Because of this, all other items need to be kept away from him and only his chew bones and toys made available. He also needs to monitored closely in the yard as he will take every opportunity to eat tall grass and weeds or chew on pine cones.
He is starting to counter surf so keeping him in check is necessary throughout this puppy phase. He needs to be crated at night so he doesn't wander about.
He appears to be housetrained now as long as he is taken outside every few hours. A 2-3 hour outside potty schedule is necessary.
Hume tends to get carsick so he should not be fed before traveling, although he is improving with every ride.
He is such a big love that is just in need of training and guidance. He is incredibly smart and has already learned 'walk', 'going to bed', 'no', 'breakfast' and 'dinner' and he is working on 'off' and 'down' and 'meet' and 'greet'.
He currently goes on a 2 1/2 mile walk every day and though he loves being off leash, he is learning to behave on leash. We would not recommend him for someone gone all day as he doesn't really like to be crated for long and away from his humans.
He loves to play with large resident dogs so he would easily fit into a home with multiple dogs and would probably prefer a play buddy, but could potentially be an only dog as long as he gets lots of attention and exercise daily.
He has shown some interest in cats, but has done very well with a dog savvy cat that doesn't run.
He has not been around any younger children much, but with him being so friendly and loving, he would most likely suit children 7+. He also can be a little skittish around loud or new noises and would probably steal toys laying around.
He will steal your heart with his goofy, loveable self! Come and meet him!!
