Pretzel Bun is a curious, loving, and laidback pup who's waiting to find his forever home. He loves just following you around the house for attention, and once that's done, he enjoys being a couch potato and watching everything going on in the house. If you are looking for a super laid back pup when he's indoors, but one who also likes walks, Pretzel is your guy! He's really good when it comes to meeting new people and just loves attention. He's starting to play with a ball but he slips around the floors a lot so it's a little funny. For a perfect day, he would ideally love a walk and a game of fetch outdoors.

Pretzel LOVESSSS attention, and is practically a 75 pound lap dog. He also shows affection by pushing against your side/hand to tell you he needs attention. When he first started walking on a leash, he was pulling a lot, but now he's getting better. He's also house-trained and knows to do his business outside. He doesn't seem to like being in a crate, and would do best if left to free-roam around the house. He knows how to "sit and is working on "stay/free. He would prefer humans who can respect his space if he's happily munching on a bone.

An ideal home would be with humans who are available to give him attention for most of the day, and are not gone for more than 5 hours at a time. He'd probably do better in a home with adults as he's a really low energy dog and children might be too much for him. Since he also loves to stretch his legs and walk around, he would love humans who can walk him a lot, or where he has a backyard to romp around in. He can be a counter surfer, so someone who is mindful of when they leave on the counter is ideal.

Come meet Preztel Bun and check out his gorgeous coat and smile!
