If you have a doggie that would love to have a new furry playmate, Spotty can be your boy. This sweet young boy has played with multiple pups - seniors, puppies, hyper canines, you name it - and he's been very gentle with them. He's very polite to dogs he's met on walks and hasn't barked at them. At his foster home, he hangs out in the yard with the dog, playing most of the day.

Spotty also wants to be friends with his foster's cat. They get along well in the house. He's also encountered cats on walks and at stores and isn't interested in them. He has been incredibly gentle with a 1.5-year-old child. He didn't mind being poked and grabbed by the little hands.

He is a great leash walker, doing no pulling and just happy to sniff dogs he passes by. If they bark at him, he brushes it off and walks away.

At home, he can be playful, but mostly likes just laying around on the floor. He loves being cuddled and lets his foster dad pick him up and use him as a blanket. He loves to plop his head in laps for petting. He also looks for head scratches when new visitors come to the house. And he enjoys going to stores with his foster to get petting from anyone who walks by.

Spotty is a super smart, treat motivated boy who listens intently and quickly learned to understand sit, shake and down. He sleeps in his crate at night and snoozes there when his foster dad is away, having no anxiety. And he is house-trained.

An easygoing boy, Spotty should fit nicely in any home. Come offer him a doggie playmate and he'll move in with you!
