Red Velvet Cake wins MVP for his ability to adapt and improve during his time with his foster family. He is just a lovable guy who wants to go on adventures and show his humans lots of affection! His fosters say that he's relaxed, easygoing and loves being close to them. He's very friendly and eager to meet new people. He shows some interest in his foster cats but stays away from their area.

Red is a very active boy who likes to explore the yard and all who have entered it, but he does so without barking! He's a very quiet and observant boy. He loves investigating where the squirrels and rabbits have wandered around. He's even taken a squeaky toy outside and tried to bury it. He also enjoys running errands with his fosters! After his busy day of errands and investigation, he's happy to return to the house and take naps. At night, he settles in his bed in his room and sleeps through the night.

He's house-trained and learning his obedience skills, though he can be a stubborn boy at times and requires reinforcement! He will need an owner that is willing to continue to work on leash training with him since he does pull, but this loving boy is so smart and will develop leash manners with time and patience!

Red will love a home with an active family who can take him on walks and continue his training. He will be a great companion for parents who like being out and about during the day or work where he can tag along and stay with them. He'll also be happy to stay home with them during the day. He also may enjoy a dog buddy. Come meet this adorable boy!
