Personality: Howie is fairly new to us, and is still transitioning to the shelter environment. What we know about Howie so far: Howie is very people social and affectionate, and will approach new people right away to make friends.
History: Howie came to us from a shelter in the Central Valley.
Dog skills: So far, Howie has done best when paired with social and confident dogs. He can sometimes be nervous meeting new dogs, but has had successful playdates with dogs who pick up on his nervous cues and give him a little space. Once he finds a dog friend that matches his personality, he engages in bouncy, forward play.
Cat skills: We do not have a history of Howie with cats.
Leash skills: Howie can be tentative in environments with lots of noise and activity. When he is overwhelmed while out on walks, he may stall and stop walking. He has responded well to verbal praise to encourage him to keep walking. I am sponsored by Caroline Alexander!
