Hi, I'm Padre! I am a big guy with an even bigger heart! I like treats, my crate and exploring the yard. I am still finding my confidence so I love to take naps in my crate. But, I don't love when the door is closed. My foster mom said when my crate door is closed everyone has VIP tickets to ROOfest2020 so it might be best for my forever home to have no shared walls.

I get along with all 5 of my foster siblings ranging from 4 lbs to 85 lbs! My big, male, foster brother is probably my favorite! We love to find sniffs together! It would be nice to have siblings though I would also okay being an only child. I don't have a habit of making things chew toys and I have caught on quickly to letting myself in and out to potty via the dog door in my foster home. I also like to go on walks.

My absolute favorite time of day is meal time! As soon as I hear my foster mom get out my food bowl I do a little tap dance and sit pretty in my crate waiting patiently for my meal. I like eating in there because I prefer to dine alone and not have my foster siblings crowd me while I eat. Though I do love food I haven't tried to beg for food or surf any counters.

When I'm happy to see people I like to try and jump up. I call it a hug, my foster mom calls it a little "invasive" (whatever that means). Apparently we're working on it. All and all I am a pretty chill guy with great manners! My foster mom says anyone would be lucky to call me theirs.
