If you like your pups small, sweet and spicy, have we got the one for you! Introducing Jackob -- the little dog with a big personality.

Jackob greets each new day with enthusiasm; jumping and running in little circles all around his foster's home. He loves getting out for walks, climbing hills and exploring the neighborhood, happily seeking out pets from his foster and offering affection. Back at home, he enjoys spending time near his people, but prefers to be left alone when he's relaxing. His favorite spot to curl up is on the highest part of the couch or daybed, like a king on his throne.

While Jackob may act tough and confident, deep down he's a sensitive pup still trying to make sense of the world, and humans, around him. He can be wary of new people and likes to take his time getting to know them, especially when it comes to petting. Once he's comfortable, he can be affectionate and enjoy pets, but on his own terms, thank you. Jackob will need a patient adopter who can provide him with stability and love, respect his boundaries, and resist the urge to pick him up and kiss his adorable face. (That's not really his style). While Jackob isn't a fan of kids, he would happily share his home with a doggie sibling.

So if your life could use a little spice, ask about Jackob! He'll steal your food with his persistence, and your heart with his cute face. Check out his adventures in foster on Instagram @tiberius_claudius_nero_organa
