Gouda is a gentle and loving little guy that needs a home with another dog and someone around often. He needs to be with another dog as he loves the companionship. He also loves running around the house but also will also love to find a comfy lap to curl up in for a nap. He can be a little shy at first, but with a little time he will be completely open to your pets and affection. Gouda is still working on his housetraining so needs to be taken out every 3 hours or so because or will have accidents. He seems to be off and on with his separation anxiety–in his current home he doesn’t seem to be exhibiting any separation anxiety, even though there are no other dogs. So we think he can be left alone for a couple of hours and will do just fine with that, but any longer and he may not do well. He can also be jealous toward other dogs for attention, but this can be easily controlled as he is eager to please.
Gouda is a bit sensitive around the neck and and face area as he learns to trust you so will growl to let you know he is uncomfortable. Fortunately, this improves after some time and patience. Gouda is learning to love going on walks and gets excited when he knows it’s time to go out.
