Dino (Deeno) is so easy to fall in love with!
He is an absolute snuggle bug who loves people. He's very friendly and loves meeting people whether out in the world or guests at home.
He's very excitable and happy but does struggle with major separation anxiety. He barks and howls a lot when home alone - but is very quiet when with people. A detached home is best, so he won't bother neighbors while getting used to being alone. He may benefit from another dog in the home.
He does great in the car, laying down or watching out the window. He's definitely more comfortable being held than sitting on his own, though. He also does great getting a bath! Slowly learning to have his teeth brushed. He's VERY food motivated and loves treats. His behaviour suggests that his past owners fed him human food from the table - so he's currently learning to not jump up and try to grab food at dinner time.
He is a tiny & speedy little escape artist - having a harness is a must because he tries to slip out of his collar. Having a fenced yard is important, as he is reluctant to relieve himself when wearing a sweater or harness but will try to run if he gets off leash.
He is so cute, and he definitely knows it! Great with kids.
He has not been tested with any dogs while in his current foster home but did live with another dog in his foster home in California. He has not been cat tested.
