Are you looking for the perfect sidekick? Lucky for you, Poncho is ready to be your wingman! Poncho takes a bit of time to warm up to new places and situations, but he is so playful and cuddly once he does! He loves gazing into your eyes longingly, and resting his head on your lap during mandatory Zoom calls to make sure you're paying attention.

Poncho does well when he's home alone because home is his favorite place to be. You can leave the TV on - don't worry, he won't complain no matter what show you pick. When you come back, he loves to trot around the house checking every room to see how you are doing, and reminding you how cute he is, until it's time to play.

Poncho does well playing with dogs in playgroup, and might enjoy living with a well-matched sibling. For such a young dog, Poncho is very mature and matches energy levels nicely.

Poncho would do well with patient humans that will allow him time to warm up to new surroundings, so he can fully show off his smarts and sweet personality.
