Pupdate 1: Tex gets up from his crate at 5 AM with me and my resident dogs to go out and go potty, he gets right to business when outside. He might have an accident in the house if not taken out often enough, but he has learned to sit by the door and ring the bell when he does want to go outside. He goes back to his crate with a treat-stuffed ball or a frozen KONG and peanut butter for 4 hours then gets the lunch hour to go potty and run around outside. Another 4 hours and he’s set free for the night! He burns off his energy well, playing with his foster siblings, but loves being around his human. He’s working on basic “down” and “sit” commands and doing well. After a few hours of playtime in and outside, he becomes a lap snuggling puppy! Once it’s bedtime, he sleeps well in his crate all night and keeps it dry. He may whine for a few minutes but then lays down to sleep. His kennel is in the living room where one other dog sleeps nearby, that may provide him some comfort that he isn’t completely alone. Tex is super friendly and in tune with humans. Tex has not interacted with children while in my care, but I think he would do great with kids of any age, after learning not to jump on them of course, as he does like giving many kisses! He would be great as the only dog in the household or sharing with another playful dog as well.
Tex is a typical puppy with bursts of energy. He loves to play with toys and tear around the yard with the other dogs. He really mellows out at the end of the night and snuggles up on the couch with me. He is just starting training on leash walking and sometimes refuses to go the direction you're taking him, but will come with coaxing. Tex currently resides with my 4 resident dogs and gets along with them well! Some of them get tired of the puppy and will let him know they don't want to play, he respects that and finds another dog or a toy to play with instead. Tex did meet a cat and after initial sniffs, paid him no mind. Tex is left in his kennel with a Kong to occupy his mind and mouth in the morning. He doesn't chew up the bed/towels left in the crate and seems to be just fine. He is very excited when I get home to see me and get out of the crate! Tex is incredibly in touch with his human, and could be a great Emotional Support Animal as well! He loves being in contact with his human and getting all the belly rubs he can! Tex is a real sweet heart, quiet even when the other dogs are barking at passerby; I haven’t heard him bark once while in my care! He is looking for a home that will give as much love as he does.
