Meet YIPPY! This high energy dude is looking for some nice humans who are committed to snuggles, training and long games of fetch. He’s very affectionate and has a great personality to go with those ridiculous good looks… he will require some help to overcome some bad habits. He’s still very much a puppy and thinks that your hands are chew toys. Mmmmm fingers. He’s been working on it but he’s just a big goofy dog and sometimes forgets. He’s very smart and has picked up on most basic commands but he’s also very stubborn and impatient so may not always follow through on them. Although he loves his people he doesn’t really care what you think and isn’t really looking to please you. He’s in a very one sided relationship where you snuggle him all the time and then he ignores everything you say. SO FUN. He needs firm boundaries in order to thrive. He would definitely benefit from some structured training to help exhaust him mentally and physically. He’s a big boy and does tend to pull on leash, he’s been using a halti in foster and does pretty well until a squirrel comes around. He’s the most affectionate dog and wants to be around you always. Say goodbye to personal space because he likes to be beside you at all times, even in the bathroom. Can you just snuggle him forever? YIPPY needs to be the only pet in the home at this time. He’s not great with other dogs, especially higher energy males and will growl/lunge at them. He’s ok with calm dogs but really isn’t all that interested in making any friends. He hasn’t been tested with cats but has a high prey drive. We think he’d be ok with older kids who understand his size and what to do when he nips.
