Dev (Dakota) is 100% great with all people, including kids! He loves to snuggle on the couch and ride in the car or truck. He behaves like a perfect gentleman when taken along to run errands around town, and he attracts a lot of attention!

His foster reports that he is house-trained, has never chewed on or destroyed a single thing (other than dog toys!), sleeps well through the night (and will let you know if he needs to go out), rarely barks unless he hears noises outside (that's a good thing!) and can be left alone inside for several hours with perfect behavior.

He understands "sit" and "no" commands, walks very well on a leash, loves to play, and when off leash he comes when called. He is chill around food and takes treats out of your hand very gently. His foster has a Chihuahua mix and they get along great inside and outside of the home. He is fine with most dogs, but it's best to introduce him slowly to other large "dominant dogs to see how they react to each other.

He has already become pretty attached to his foster and will make someone a perfect and loyal companion! Come meet this lovable boy!
