About Me:  Hi! I'm Peter. Don't I just look sweet and cuddly?! Well, I am! And my foster Mom says my fur is super soft. If you'd like to be my furever family, I would love if I was the only dog in your home and you could give me lots of attention and let me cuddle you, or share your attention between me and one other dog who doesn't mind my sometimes-rough-playing. Also, I like those things you call 'kids', but if they're older that would be better, as I love to get their attention and may jump to do so. I'm told I'm bigger than I think, so I might knock the little ones down or nip a bit; I'm just trying to get them to pet me! 

Health Notes:   Peter found his way to hart after tussling with a porcupine but has since had his quills removed and healed up well.  Healthy and happy, Peter is now ready for his adoptive parents.  Peter is up to date with DACPP, Bordatella, Rabies and is neutered and microchipped. 

Behavior Notes:   Peter was a bit of a handful when he first came into care, but has made some great improvements. He is good with other dogs, but needs proper introductions. He can be a bit pushy with other dogs because he wants to play and has a hard time with boundaries sometimes, but he is getting better in that area. He is a counter surfer which the foster home is working on, but it is best to just take away temptation and make sure there's nothing he can reach when your back is turned. He did show some signs of destructive behaviors when he wanted attention, but that has shown immense improvement as well. He is fully house trained, he is crate trained as well. He is learning some basic commands, and leash training is a work in progress as he is a puller.

Think you have found your furever friend?
