This little dude is DANTE and he was the runt of his litter who were trying to make it by in some pretty tough conditions. As a result, he becomes defensive when he sees something as threatening and will sound the alarm and start barking. When he did this with his siblings they would protect him and now he’s getting used to the idea of taking care of himself…. Jk he wants you to do it because he’s a huge baby. We’re definitely looking for his forever home to continue to build his confidence and gently teach him that the world isn’t so bad. He currently lives with fellow scruff PATCHES who is not from his litter but likes to boss him around like a big sister. He likes playing with her but clearly has a desire to not be treated like the younger sibling and likes to have something that’s his, like a special cushion just for DANTE. He also takes a mouthful of kibbles and runs under something small so that PATCHES can’t steal them. Do you little man! DANTE could definitely live with another smaller dog who is chill and able to show him the ropes. Bigger dogs make him nervous – he hides between your legs if they’re close or barks if they’re far away. He’s a bit of a drama queen but is totally chill when he’s just hanging out with you at home. He loves being outside although the cold has been a bit much for him. He is housetrained but still gets let out regularly as he’s a puppy so a flexible schedule is key. He is very affectionate with his people and is generally good about meeting new people, even kids, as long as they don’t move too quickly with him. He hasn’t been tested with cats.
