Tiny is his name, and butt wiggling is his game! This pup has perfected the full body wiggle, and that is exactly how he greets you every time you enter the room. (Even if you just left for one second.) He will also be at the ready with a toy, parading proud, ready to play fetch or tug. He loves to be outside and is happiest going on walks or running around chasing squirrels. After burning all that energy, a good belly rub and a few treats are his favorite way to settle down.

He can be timid when first meeting people, but he warms up fast, especially when cookies are involved. Now in foster care, this rough and tumble kind of guy lives with another dog he loves to play with in the yard. He wants to be the one getting the most attention, so he'll do best as the only pup in the home or with a well-matched pup. He is completely house-trained and does great when left alone. All he needs is a toy for entertainment and he will patiently free roam and wait for you to return, greeting you with the wiggle! He has never lived with kids and has not been around cats. He listens very well, sits like a champ and is eager to learn everything that you are prepared to teach! Tiny is motivated by treats (especially anything with peanut butter!), but even more so by love and praise.

Tiny can be shy at first and isn't big on surprises, but he warms up fast and then becomes just a ball of wiggly love. He would do best with people who love to be active, giving him plenty of exercise and showering him with belly rubs on the couch. Tiny will make the most loyal companion. Come see the butt wiggle in real life!
