Radiohead is a precious 1-2 year old, 15 pound ball of fur that appears to be a terrier mix - my foster mom thinks maybe Shih Tzu? Regardless, he is crazy cute. He is super smart and does well with other dogs in the foster home, even the one that is super excited to see him all the time. He is a medium energy dog and would do well if paired with another dog that is of similar or lower energy. He is very gentle with other dogs. His best trait is his kindness and affection which he shares freely with the dogs in his foster home and his family - he loves to give them all kisses.😘
More about Radiohead:
- he is a shy boy, and does well with slow controlled introductions to new situations, new people and new dogs. He can be scared, and retreats to his crate for time out if there is too much going on. He has never been reactive in his shyness.
- he could do well in any family situation, and doesn't need a yard, but he does need someone who likes to walk him 2-3 times per day.
- he is working on his potty training which is improving. His new home will need to be diligent and consistent to help him transition with all his potty manners.
- he does well in a crate and it is his little den.
- he walks well on a leash and is ready for a walk when you are. He is currently using a harness to walk which is a great option for a small guy.
- he is well mannered - he doesn't jump when he meets new people, or jump on the furniture and he is leaning more commands all the time.
- he has barked at some dogs or people when he is out and about but has not been heard to bark in his foster home.
- although he has not met a cat in his foster environment, his foster family believe he could be happy in a home with cats with proper introductions from both sides
