Tito is such a social love bug. He just wants to be loved and be with his people. He has a great goofy personality and will definitely make you laugh, especially when he tries to talk to you. He is good with older children, other dogs and visitors. Tito is untested with cats but would probably try to chase them. If Tito were a human, he would have a job where he would be some kind of care-giver or a coach for any sport that includes balls.
Tito is full crate-trained and almost fully house-trained. He rides well in the car (crated), and does well at the vets office. The staff all love him! Loud noises don't seem to bother him either. Tito walks well on a leash with a prong collar. He knows "sit" "lay", and is working on "stay" "off" and "leave it". He is easily motivated by praise, food and toys.
Tito's ideal home would be someone who can continue his socialization, training, and who could provide structure boundaries since he can be a trash can raider/counter surfer. He responds well to verbal correction and redirection. Tito might be good for someone who wants to try barn-hunt, Rally or Obedience. He would do well in almost any home, and is ready for his next adventure!
