Hi friends. I’m Pierce. I’m a 1 year old 45 pound sweet boy with piercing blue eyes, soft fur, and a playful, friendly, happy, cuddly personality. I might be a husky/beagle mixed breed and probably shepherd mixed in, but we don’t really know. I lived in a shelter in southeast ohio before finding my foster family in columbus. I’m good with kids and good with the few dogs that I’ve met since being here. Belly rubs are my favorite and I flop onto my back when I get pets. I’ll walk around with a stuffed toy in my mouth and my foster mom says it’s the cutest thing. I love fetch and I’m good at dropping the toy for you to throw again.
I sleep calmly in a crate at night as long as I’m in the same room with my humans, but I don’t like being in a separate room, and I do get up early. I get a little anxious when I’m left home alone in my crate so my foster family is working with me on how to be okay with that.
I really want to please my family, and enjoy being trained with treats. I’m getting better at the commands sit, wait, shake, down. But when I get outside with distractions, it’s harder to listen, so I’ll need some work with training around distractions. I also get very excited with all the people and dogs I see when I go on walks (because I love them so much!) so I still need work on leash training. I will chill out in the back yard with my family hours, but I once chased a rabbit and jumped a 3ft fence, so I will need to have a sturdy tall fenced yard or a stable tether if not on a leash outside.
My foster family really loves me and says I make them laugh every day. If you’d like to meet me, please apply today!
