Foster update: Mick is a great dog and a pleasure to have around. He loves to play fetch and is quite agile, so a nice yard would be a wonderful. Mick is great in the house and loves to hang out and watch the world go by from the balcony. He does get excited when someone comes or goes and will alert bark so a household without a lot of in and out traffic is best. He is often carrying around his squeaky toys and plushies, waiting for someone to toss them for him, but he is not a toy destroyer. Mick knows sit, down and stay and a few tricks. He will wait until you give him permission to eat at mealtime and takes treats gently. He is great with our teenagers and all their friends. He sleeps all night on his dog bed (or wherever he finds himself most comfy) and will wake us up with hugs (literally) and kisses every morning.
Mick seems to like the ladies doggies with a proper introduction. It's likely he would get on with a mellow female or as the only dog in the home. No kitties for Mick as he very much would like to chase the neighborhood cat and bunnies, lizards and hummingbird alike. He does pretty well on leash but can get spooked by activity coming his way. This is easily managed by distraction and space. Mick is completely housebroken and trustworthy when alone in the house. Besides the initial bit of whining, he has settles quickly and has no separation anxiety. This handsome boy will make a wonderful companion to some lucky family!
