They said that no dog could have a small body, large head, and bigger heart; Turbine proved them all wrong! This adorable pup is sweet and low key! He doesn't bark, but he does gently snore, sometimes even when he's awake! Turbine loves to sleep, especially on mats. You will find him curled up, wagging his tail while he dreams.

Is Turbine housetrained? You know it! He likes his crate, and is an absolute dream on the leash. He needs a harness to stop him pulling forward, but once it's on, he's gentle, responsive, and follows your lead. If he sees other dogs? Yawn! He's with you, and you're the only one he's excited about. He does well with other dogs at play time, too! We're not sure about kids, but he seems politely interested in the neighborhood cats. He's not too interested in toys, and is a fan of treats, but what really wins his heart is your affection.

Turbine is a calm dog who seems to favor a slow lifestyle. He's a whiz at going down stairs, but going up still perplexes him, so he'll need someone to teach him. He also has dry skin that may be caused by seasonal allergies. He's also heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. When the rest period is over, he'll be ready to get back outside and explore!

Turbine is the perfect pup for a family who wants a sweet and loving pup who enjoys spending time with his human friends. Come say hi to this cute little prince!
