Butch is a handsome black and tan 4 year old male weighing 90 lbs. Due physical limitations, he was relinquished by his prior owner because she was unable to manage the exercise Butch deserves. He shared his home with multiple Chihuahuas and welcomed all human visitors without hesitation. He currently shares his Foster home with a dominant female (see Zana, available female dogs) who eagerly tries to engage him in play. Initially he appeared aloof, but slowly he is returning the request with mutual action! In the home, Butch is quite content in the company of his human. He is learning to walk well on a leash and loves exploring the neighborhood. He finds the water enticing and has no hesitation entering the shores on a lake walk or wading his paws in the pool.
Despite his size, Butch is relatively calm and gentle. In moments of excitement, however, he will jump upward, so caution with small children. He has great house manners, knows basic commands, and is learning to maintain appropriate boundaries when another dog receives attention.
Butch will no doubt benefit from one on one training to build his confidence and learn how to please his human. He sleeps quietly in the crate through the night and appears housebroken. Car rides are still a bit intimidating, but he is slowly adapting to them as he discovers they often end with fun adventures! This sweet boy will make a wonderful addition to a family willing to offer him opportunities to explore and succeed.
Cats and small critters unknown.
This is a Level 2 Dog
