Meet FALCO! He’s from Saudi Arabia so is still adjusting to his new life and will need a confident owner who can provide structure. He lives in a very busy part of the city currently and we think he would probs prefer somewhere quieter. Space wise he’s good in an apartment as long as he gets some exercise each day. He’s generally quiet and chill at home, usually just curling up near you on the couch. Rarely actually touching, but finding comfort in the fact that you’re chilling with him. He’s very loyal and affectionate with the people he trusts, loving belly rubs once he’s comfortable. He doesn’t really bark or whine but he does like to chat with you, especially when he’s begging for your food. Other than the noise he doesn’t really invade your personal space and understands to stay out of the kitchen. When he does push his boundaries he responds well to a verbal correction. After initial issues, he has now taken to his crate and will go in and lay down just from hearing his treat bag being opened. Continuing with crate training will help to reinforce positive boundaries with him going forward. Although we all love cuddling pups all night long, it’s something beneficial for them to understand that they have their own space while the bed or the couch is yours. Sudden movements or noises outdoors can make FALCO nervous so it’s best to have him on a martingale and harness as he acclimates to his new environment. FALCO is leash reactive toward other dogs and has been working on this in foster care. We would like to see him go to a home committed to ongoing socialization training. If he does have the opportunity to meet another dog properly he is dog social, however, he needs some support to get to that point. He hasn’t been tested with cats and has been ok during casual interactions with kids but we would prefer for him to go to a home with older, chill kids only. FALCO will be such a great companion with the right support! If you’d like to meet him fill out an application to adopt NOW!
