Foster comments: He is very affectionate and loving. Snuggling on couch is his favorite with bel-ly rubs. He “talks” to you when he needs to go outside by groaning. He eats once a day Purina dog food. Occasionally he will want more and will tell you by staring at his bowl and groan. His quirk is not to place the food in the bowl but have to pour out for him to eat it. He sits, shakes and loves his treats. He gets super excited to walk soon as he sees the leash. He prefers the in-doors to outside so can be around people. He will back up to you so you can scratch his hind area.

Backstory from owner surrender: was rescued by my daughter a few years ago. she moved and unable to take him to college. My son helped me with him but moved 6 months ago. I’m allergic to dogs so now with him all the time has caused major health problems for me.
