This is Sprout! He is loving and affectionate. He is fully potty-trained – no accidents at all. He is very smart & learned how to use the doggy door just by watching his foster brother. Sprout loves belly rubs and wrestling with his foster brother. He also loves playing by himself and will toss his toy tiger and chase after it. Sprout is very athletic and bouncy. He loves to jump on stuff or bound over whenever his name is called.

Some things Sprout and his foster family are working on:
– Leash walking. Sprout walks well on a leash, but pulls a little and always wants to be in the front.
– Barking. He does bark a lot at upcoming strangers or dogs while on walks. His foster tries to stop this by being aware of surroundings and crossing the street when they can. He also likes to bark at his reflection in the window.
– Mild separation anxiety. Sprout generally follows his foster into every room, even the bathroom. He does whine when he’s placed in his crate. Although for some reason, he prefers his foster brothers’ crate and will voluntarily go hangout inside.

-Aggression.  Sprout does have a bite history and has been known to get excited/upset with new strangers in his environment.

 

Will you give Sprout a new chance at life? He will surely flourish like the sweet, angelic little sprout he is in your home!
