Von quickly settled into his foster home and warmed up to his new human companion - and now he loves him so much! He's constantly at his side, kissing him and seeking attention.

This very sweet boy also likes playing with toys and chewing on them. He is unsure about leash walking and will need continued encouragement and training. He can be fearful, but he is coming along with some coaxing, and he's making progress. At home, he understands "sit," and is learning "down," "place" and "stay." He's a house-trained boy who does fairly well in his crate, easily going inside.

Von will live best as the only pet in a low-traffic home. Come meet him, he will focus on making you happy!
