ABOUT THIS ANIMAL: Meet Trix - the charming canine companion you've been searching for! With an estimated weight of 40 lbs, Trix is ready to steal your heart and become your faithful furry friend.

Trix may have a few quirks, but his lovable personality shines through in every interaction. While he can be a bit leash reactive when encountering other dogs, he's a social butterfly at heart and loves nothing more than playing with his canine pals off leash. However, Trix prefers to be the only dog in the household, ensuring he gets all the love and attention he deserves.

When it comes to kids, Trix has lived with them before and has shown his sweet and affectionate side. However, due to his preference for being the center of attention, we recommend he be placed in a home with children aged 10 and older. Once he warms up to you, Trix transforms into the biggest cuddle bug, showering you with love and affection every chance he gets!

In terms of training, Trix knows the basics like sit and is housebroken, making him a well-behaved companion in the home. He settles nicely in his crate but doesn't require it, as he's perfectly content lounging on the couch or spending quality time with his favorite humans.

Trix's likes include people, affection, and tasty treats - he's always eager to show off his charming personality and win over your heart. However, he's not a fan of loud noises, fast movements, or sharing his toys and food, so a calm and understanding environment would be ideal for him.

At 6 years old, Trix is ready to embark on new adventures with a loving family by his side. He enjoys spending time outdoors, lounging on the couch, and simply enjoying life's simple pleasures with you. While he may need some leash training and supervision around small animals, his loving nature and loyal companionship make him the perfect addition to any home with a fenced-in yard.

If you're ready to open your heart and home to Trix, don't hesitate to make him a part of your family today. Adopt Trix and experience a lifetime of love, laughter, and unforgettable memories together!
