An emotional support animal for his previous owner, Mueller is incredibly loyal to his human friends. You'll never question how much he loves you as this highly affectionate guy will nuzzle his head underneath your head and give you soft little side kisses from the corner of his mouth. His favorite place to be is in your lap, and he's described by his friends as having a very comforting presence. He seems very in tune with how his people are feeling and will offer kisses if he thinks you need them. As cuddly and loving as Mueller is, it does take him some time to warm up to new people, but once he trusts you, you become everything to Mueller and a more loyal friend you'll never find.

Mueller is also super low-maintenance - he likes to play in short bursts, but overall has a pretty low energy level. He likes to play tug of war and roughhouse with his people and also enjoys his toys, especially ones with bumps and nubs that he can chew on. But what Mueller really enjoys are his walks. He loves to get out on the trail, his floppy ears bouncing along happily, before he's back at home chilling with his people.

This smart pup and enjoys showing off his skills and he's got quite a few. He already knows "sit", "stay", "come" "lay down" and "shake". He walks well on leash, is fully house and crate-trained and is good at keeping himself entertained when his people are busy, either laying on his back, enjoying the breeze or giving his chew toys some attention.

Loving and loyal and a pleasure to have around, Mueller would make a wonderful addition to your home. Come meet him!
