A SMART LITTLE GUY:  6 years old / 9 lbs.   Mostly Mutts adoption center is open Mon-Sat. 11-4pm.  Some of us are in foster homes so please call 770-272-6888 1st to find out if I’m available to meet during the week.  I’m a handsome little guy who walks nicely on my leash and I’m always excited to get out and about for walks. Before going into my current foster home, I regularly visited a temporary foster home and got along well with the other little dog there as I do with the one in my current foster home, and I’ve met a few dogs at the MM shelter that I liked, though I did growl at them just a little, so if you have another nice dog at home, let’s meet. I’m also doing very well with my potty manners in my foster home, so yay me! I love to hang out in my crate to relax and enjoy a chew bone or two, so please have a crate for me in my new home. I also like to lay on a pillow near the window where I can soak up some sun. In general, I’m a pretty quiet guy, though I think I’m a good watchdog.  When I’m in a person’s lap or being carried, I may growl and get a little snappy towards people who approach, especially men as I seem to think that I should guard my person. This is a trainable trait and I have been working diligently on it with my trainer at MM’s, and I’m making progress, so just ask to see how it’s going. I did bite an unannounced male visitor on the toe who came into my temporary foster’s home while she wasn’t there. But I think I was just being protective, as he was a stranger to me and no one was home to welcome him and show me otherwise. When I met various other visitors in my temp. foster home, with my temp. foster mom present, I did great! Still, using my teeth is not acceptable, so like I said above, I’m in training and will need a good leader in my home. As a learning exercise, my trainer and I go to busy places that are new to me. These outings teach me that I don’t need to react to unfamiliar surroundings, people or dogs. I went to a cross country meet with my trainer where I was very polite to the people and dogs that I met. Instead of carrying me around, my trainer let me explore everything from the ground level, so I didn't try to be the Alpha. I wasn’t bothered by the loud activities going on around me either. In the Mostly Mutts University training program, I’ve learned the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘down’, and ‘drop it’ commands as well as loose leash walking and how to wait for cues to go in and out the doors! My trainer says that I’m a pro at waiting until being called – one of the best she’s seen in the program! When I’m in a home, I like following my person around and I come running when I hear the word “treats”, yummy!  I’m eager to please and super sweet, so come and meet me and let’s see if we’re the perfect fit!  Energy level:  4-6.  A home with no kids is what I’m looking for due to the guarding behavior and the one bite.  I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, neutered, and my adoption fee is $299.00 which also includes an engraved name tag, Martingale collar and leash.
