Meet CAPY! He turns one this month but is still very much living that puppy life and doesn’t want to grow up. He heard adulting is hard and honestly, we get it. He is super sweet but still has a lot of puppy tendencies that will need patience and support from his people. He will need some training as he continues to build his confidence but has already made serious progress with the help of his foster! Like a puppy, CAPY has short bursts of energy and then spends a lot of time sleeping/resting/cuddling. He is very affectionate with his people once he gets to know them and likes to be in the same space as his people as much as possible. He has been learning to be more independent in the home and entertain himself when his people are busy. He’s eager to please his people and is a quick learner when provided with consistent expectations. He’s in the process of being crate trained and it’s going pretty well so far. He sleeps quietly in the crate at night and occasionally retreats to it for a little break during the day, on his own terms. CAPY doesn’t like being left in his crate when his foster is out of the home, and does better when he has some space to explore in the house while alone. CAPY can be vocal for a short period of time when left alone as he does not like to see his people leave. He’s well suited for apartment living as long as there is no issue with his barking/whining when left alone. He is housetrained but occasionally has a little excited or nervous pee. He’s a medium energy dude and his ideal day consists of a couple moderate walks and lots of indoor playtime. He loooves playing with his toys in the comfort of his home. He’s still a bit nervous outdoors but is getting better with areas that he’s visited frequently and has learned to love the area that he knows best. He’s sceptical of new people, particularly outside, so proper introductions are key. He prefers to make the first move and give a quick sniff before people pet him. He’s more interested in being your friend if you have treats! Other dogs make him nervous but he does well with calm, non-reactive dogs. He hasn’t been tested with cats or kids but has shown some signs of a prey drive. If you’d like to meet CAPY fill out an application to adopt now!
