Named after STEVE from Sex and the City because he’s adorable, goofy, and a little bit awkward but like, he’s everyone’s favourite and you want him to see him get everything he’s ever dreamed of. GO STEVE! He’s still young and settling into his new life in the city. He’s figuring things out and trying to work up the confidence to ask Miranda to be with him forever. He’s a bit shy with new people but after a proper introduction, he is super sweet. He builds strong relationships with his trusted people and will often look to you for a confidence boost when he’s nervous. With continued exposure, he’s starting to realize that the world isn’t such a scary place. He’s definitely not a couch potato. He needs a couple of good walks per day, ideally with some time to run around cause he’s a Whippet and he’s fast as heck. STEVE loves playing with toys and can often be found lounging around the house entertaining himself by chewing on something. It will be important for his people to puppy-proof and keep him properly exercised as he may decide to chew your belongings instead of his toys if they’re left out or if he gets bored. With enough exercise, he’s pretty chill in the home. STEVE does not like being crated which is something he continues to work on. He’s very vocal if left in the crate for any amount of time. He’s also working on housetraining so a flexible schedule with people around a lot is best. He’s ok with other dogs but is hesitant at first. He has run around with a couple dogs once he got over the initial shyness so a friendly, playful role model may be a good fit for him. He’s spent some time with kids and was loving and playful with them after a proper intro. He hasn’t been tested with cats.
