Introducing Frosty the Snowman, a vivacious and endearing pup ready to melt your heart! Frosty loves to play and has a gentle touch, especially with smaller dogs like his 12 lbs pug buddy, Kevin. He's a gentle giant, mindful of his size while playing, gingerly pawing at his smaller playmates.

Frosty's a hit with kids, too. He adores running around the backyard with his 5 and 7-year-old nieces, never tiring of their playful antics. He's also great with cats, paying no attention to the resident felines, making him a versatile addition to any pet-loving family.

When left alone, Frosty does well in his crate, staying calm and content. He's still working on house training, wearing a doggie diaper most of the time due to some hind-end issues. Despite his hip dysplasia and possible nerve damage, Frosty's spirit remains unbroken, and he's full of life and love.

Frosty loves leash walks and is a polite walker who doesn't pull or jerk. Crate time is easy for him, and he stays in his crate without fuss when his foster family is away or during the night. Although basic obedience is a challenge due to his inability to sit, Frosty's eagerness to please shines through.

This affectionate boy loves human interaction, seeking out pets and butt scratches often. He's sweet and loving, though his excitement can be overwhelming-watch out for his enthusiastic jumps! Frosty's playful and curious nature makes him a joy to be around, and he's always up for a game or a puzzle.

One of Frosty's most adorable traits is his excitement over treats. He'll hop side to side on his front paws, underbite on full display, making it impossible not to smile. Frosty's perfect home would include kids of any age and pets of any size, ideally with a moderate energy level to keep him active and happy.

Frosty is a big lug with a soft heart and a warm, welcoming demeanor. He's truly a "bubba dog, ready to bring joy and love to his forever family. Ready to welcome Frosty the Snowman into your home? He's excited to meet you!
