Introducing Mason, a gorgeous 19-month-old house trained Terrier mix. Mason enjoys living with other dogs and has not barked or reacted to the two resident dogs in his foster home. He enjoys playing with them, and plays very respectfully. While on walks, he has not been reactive to other dogs!

Mason is an incredibly sweet and quiet dog. He is fully housetrained. He is dog and people friendly and greets everyone he meets with calm happiness. Mason is a great balance of energetic and couch potato. He is happy to go on walks or sunbathe and play in the yard before settling down to snuggle on the couch. He may be missing an eye, but he has quickly gotten used to navigating his environment without any issues. He would love to go to a home with a yard and someone who does not mind him on the furniture. Mason loves laying on the couch or bed. He is crate trained and sleeps through the night without a sound.

He is still perfecting his play manners with his foster's resident dog, but he has been easy to redirect. He has already learned "sit" and is working on other commands with his foster. He has quickly learned loose-leash walking skills with an easy walk harness. Mason would likely do best in a home without an indoor cat, but has reportedly ignored cats he's lived with in the past so he may just need some extra time to warm up to them! He has not been exposed to children but is very friendly and calm with all adults he's met.

Would you like a sweet, gorgeous, loving dog to complete your family? Come meet Mason today and follow him on Instagram @Mason_fosterpup!
