Switch will turn 4 on November 21st making him a Scorpio. According the the internet, Scorpios are private and cautious guys who don't jump quickly into relationships. They need a deep, emotional, and magnetic connection to fall in love. Once they've found this connection, they tend to be loyal, faithful, protective, and possessive of the one they love. And this does seem to describe this boy to a T. Switch has a crooked nose from crashing into a post when he was a pup on the farm. He has no known lasting issues due to this other than missing teeth on his top right side. We think it makes him even more lovable!!
This boy is a sweet and lovable boy with all humans. As mentioned above, he seems to make a strong connection fairly quickly and prefers to be close to his peeps! He is somewhat selective when it comes to other dogs, even greyhounds, so would need to meet any potential housemates before adoption. He would do best in a home without small animals, including cats.
Switch LOVES toys, especially ones that squeak! These will keep him occupied for hours but need to be a durable type (otherwise ears, feet etc are rapidly chewed off giving him access to stuffing!) He will really enjoy a fenced yard to play with his toys and burn off some energy. He is currently living in a home without a fenced yard and enjoys exploring the neighborhood on his daily walks!! ( a harness does help!)
He will sleep through the night in his crate and shorter time periods during the day but does prefer to have his freedom. A bed close to his people is just perfect!! He is toilet trained and communicates very well when he needs to go out. He also loves his food and appears to be quite treat-motivated!
Switch enjoys car rides and will happily accompany his people on adventures. His new family will be lucky to have a loving and faithful friend.
