Being so young, we are looking for adopters to keep up with training and socializing such a bright kid. He is pretty in your face with the snuggles, so if you do have other dogs at home, they will need to tolerate such a party.

He can be a bit timid when he first meets new people, but once he realizes you have treats and want to play, he will be your bestie.
