Meet the Dice Master! Dice was born 11/07/2011 and was rescued from a horrible living situation, coming to live at his foster home only weighing 32 lbs. He was very timid when first coming into our home, but now he has really come out of his shell. After a few good meals, re-hydration, and lots of playing, cuddles, and love, he has transformed into quite a character! He currently weighs 48 lbs. and is more than happy to greet you with a big kiss at the door.
Dice has completed a six week basic obedience class, and passed with flying colors. He walks well on a leash, is crate trained, and has a fantastic recall. He absolutely loves car rides and all toys (or anything he could make a toy). He loves attention and will do anything to make you happy. He has been house broken, and is quite a gentleman when in his crate. Whenever I am not home, he stays in his crate in order to stay out of trouble. This will be necessary in his permanent home as well, for he is still very much a puppy. He has done well with my house cat, although he does stalk her wherever she goes. He does fantastic with other dogs, and will probably need to go to a home with another canine buddy or two to help “show him the ropes”.
Additionally, Dice is a pretty high jumper. When throwing the ball with Dice, I have seen him jump at least 5 feet tall. He has never thought about or attempted to jump my backyard fence, but I have never left him out for long periods of time, nor left him completely unsupervised. Even so, I believe it would be better if Dice went to a permanent home with a fenced-in backyard. In new situations, it might take him a few minutes to warm-up. He has done well with kids, adults, and the elderly. Dice is an easy boy to groom, always standing still and willing to let you bathe him. He has been on multiple car rides, to new surroundings, parks, and has even stayed a weekend in a hotel with me, and has done wonderful every single time.
Overall, Dice needs a family who is patient, loving, and ready for an energetic beautiful boy to give their affection to.
