Spaceship is a total sweetheart who is the perfect companion! He adores cuddles, pets, and scratches (especially on his cheeks). This chill dude wants a comfy couch where he can snooze, preferably next to a human companion. If you are looking for a dog that will make you laugh, Spaceship has a cute quirk where he gets excited and wiggles around doing a funny little crawl on the ground next to you. He loves his human to be near him all the times and he will follow you like a trusty best buddy. However, if you are busy doing your own thing, he is happy to politely wait for you to finish your tasks.

Spaceship is house trained, crate trained, knows 'sit', and he takes treats very gently. He is also not very chatty - unless it's important. Spaceship is learning leash walking and with continued training he will be great on a leash. He still has that puppy inquisitiveness and he loves to stop and sniff the smells for a bit. If you want to keep him occupied while you are out of the house, fill up that peanut butter kong, and he will likely not even know you left! To Spaceship, humans are his toys. He is content to have ear scratches and belly rubs over those expensive squeaky toys!

Spaceship loves meeting new people, but he doesn't get overly excited. He really enjoys sleeping on the bed, but he is also willing to take cues from his humans on whether he can jump on the bed, or when you are ready for affection. He is also great at sleeping through the night and will not make a peep! If you are looking for a good Netflix companion to chill by your side on the couch, then Spaceship is your man!

Spaceship would thrive in a home where he is the sole pet. He is always happy to receive human visitors, and he also loves frequent strolls around the neighborhood so that he can stretch his legs. His exercise of choice would be nice long walks holding hands with his human companions.

Spaceship is dreaming of a cozy forever home with cuddly humans to keep him company. Come meet this lovable hunk!
