Picked him up in Alabama from a litter of 12 puppies. Because of the crazy size of the litter, they hadnt had time to train them, and they were mostly left outside.
But he does NOT behave like a dog mostly left to be raisee by parents. He is sweet, affectionate, kind of skittish with new experiences. Very smart - he picked up sit, fetch, and taking stairs in one day. Eager to please and highly treat motivated has made housebreaking a breeze.
He is so far the best dog I've ever had. This may change with the teenager phase, but I doubt it'll change overmuch.!
His worst fault is the skittishness...so far he's been scared literally stiff by a toddler, a man in reflective construction gear, and a much larger dog (he peed a little at that).
But with some comfort he overcomes most things, some socialization will eventually cure this behavior I think.
He is super well behaved; allows ear and foot handling easily. Uncomfortable with teeth and tail llifting, but will tolerate it. Vet exclaimed over how patient he was.
Hates baths, but it's manageable. Barely struggles, mostly looks uncomfortable.
He's seriously the best.
