Hi there! I’m Poe. I’m a 1-year-old, 42 lb mixed breed male. I have a handsome black and tan coat, with cute eyebrows and a white stripe on my nose. I’ve got a lean build and a curly tail. My favorite thing is to be scratched on my shoulders- I make a goofy face and look like I’m about to fall over onto you.
I am housebroken, crate trained, and I’m pretty smart; I know “sit,” “stay,” “down,” “come,” “watch me,” and “touch.” As far as my energy level, I go for a 15 minute morning walk (some days), a 40 minute evening walk, and I run as fast as I can around the back yard for about 5 minutes. I even went for a two mile run one day and I did great!
Occasionally my foster mom works from home and I am content to sleep on my dog bed while she works. I get insecure when I see new dogs, so my foster mom is working with me on that and could show you what I’ve been learning. I am improving, and luckily I am very food motivated. I need someone who wants to work with me and help me build my confidence with positive experiences when I see other dogs. I also have a foster cat brother. If he runs I will chase him, but I can be redirected.
I require a fenced yard and would do best with a more active family! I can be a really good boy, and I hope to find someone who will give me the love and attention that I deserve!
