Baloo has been staying with us for just over one week now, and he is just the sweetest little guy ever. His name certainly suits him because he looks like a little bear cub 🐻 He has the silliest personality, guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face. He's playful, a bit clumsy, and such a happy little dude. Baloo is quickly learning his basic commands. He can already sit, stay, lie down, and jump! He also knows leave it, lol.
Baloo is crate trained. He spends work days in our living room napping in his crate, surrounded by our other pets. We have a second crate upstairs in our bedroom that Baloo sleeps in at night. He sleeps through the entire night without needing to go potty. He has been doing so well that we started leaving his crate door open at night so he has the option to snuggle up with our other dogs on the dog beds instead if he'd like.
Baloo is incredibly affectionate, and a big cuddle bug. He LOVES snuggling with his humans and enjoys a good butt scratch or belly rub. Baloo knows to go potty outside and does so 95% of the time. If he's gotta go and you're not paying attention, he'll usually make cute little grunty noises and do a lil' wiggle-butt dance until you notice him and let him out. Baloo is great on car rides and walks well on a leash, he's a bit of a doddler though lol.
Baloo gets along great with our two dogs and loves to play with them. Especially our younger dog! Our older dog is not as playful, but Baloo is very good at reading her and seems to understand her boundaries. Baloo is obsessed with our cat, but he's gentle and plays nicely with him. They sometimes cuddle, it's pretty darn cute. I think It hurts Baloo's feelings though when our cat decides playtime is over and boops him on the head, lol.
Baloo can be a little bit shy meeting new people at first, but he warms up quickly... especially with tasty treats! Speaking of treats Baloo LOVES them, bully sticks are his fave! He also loves to play fetch and enjoys treat puzzles. Honestly, he is the perfect puppy. It's impossible not to fall in love with him 💖🐾 He's such a sweetheart, that just wants to be loved and has so much love to give in return. He would honestly do well in any home environment, especially if there's another dog or kids to play with him!
I could honestly go on for days about how great this little guy is. He is the best 🐻❤️
