If you have toys that are playmates for a dog, Raffi will love to be your pup. He is so excited to see toys. Raffi also likes all people, and he's very friendly with new ones he meets, including lots of kids who come to his foster home. And if they show him toys, he gets so excited and right away wants to play with them.

Raffi also can be a very easygoing boy. He's happy to hang out with his fosters in the kitchen, family room or bedroom, chilling out in his bed or comfortable on the floor or on the sofa.

He also can be excited when meeting new dogs and may jump up on them. But he is great with his fosters' dog, a Red Heeler. He can have bursts of play energy with her, but otherwise is low-key and they hang out together, two peas in a pod.

Raffi likes going for leash walks. He's a curious boy and may pull for 5 or 10 minutes, and then calms down. Back home, he free roams the house and does well when he's home alone. He'll do well with parents who work at home or leave for work. If confined to a room, he whimpers briefly and then lays down and hangs out quietly. And he is totally house-trained.

Raffi will love a home with parents who can take him for walks and a backyard to roam for exercise. He will enjoy a well-matched dog buddy but may be too excitable now to live with a small dog or cat, and could get overstimulated and potentially aggressive with smaller animals. He may benefit from some training to overcome his excitement. Come meet Raffi. Offer him a toy and he'll follow you home!
Come meet your new best friend
