Conrad is a snuggle bug who loves his humans and wants to be with them all the time, giving them so many kisses. If you're watching TV, this Velcro pup will want to be your couch potato, curling up with you and dozing off.

This sweetheart is most attracted to people, but he's also very happy to be with his dog buddies in his foster home, seeking them out and being curious about what they're up to. He also enjoys going on walks with his people, and he's a strong walker who would love some continued leash training as he can dart from side to side, very interested in cats he sees and eager, of course, to try to chase those pesky squirrels.

At home, he is house-trained, but because he is not yet neutered, he can try to mark objects. His fosters are managing this with belly bands. He also does very well in his crate, settling and sleeping there, and doing well when home alone.

Conrad should do well in almost any home, especially one with a family who is home a lot, and can take him on errands and trips. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. After that he will be as good as new. Come meet this boy, he'll want to be your new best friend.
