BANDIT UPDATE ♥️
Bandit continues to steal hearts everywhere he goes. He is such a happy easygoing puppy who hasn’t met a single person or pet he hasn’t liked!
He’s a growing boy and he spends much of his day sleeping. He loves to snuggle, specifically pushing his body into yours as he stretches his long little limbs. His favourite way to show affection is by pushing his face into your face or neck. It will melt your heart.
Bandit is food motivated and isn’t a stubborn dog which has made him easy to train. He’s got the basics down and we are continuing to work on new tricks and recall. He’s a smart puppy with an old soul who doesn't bolt, isn’t loud, crate, and potty-trained. Makes for a pretty easygoing dog :)

Bandit will make a great loving companion for anyone lucky enough to let him in. All you have to do is meet him and he will steal your heart too ♥️
Bandit has been an absolute treat to foster, not at all what I was expecting when I signed up for a puppy. This sweet boy has such a calm, quiet and gentle demeanor much beyond his years (months?). This is contrasted by giant feet and Bambi-like legs that make him that much more endearing. He's the kind of dog who will nuzzle his head into the crook of your neck when he's tired and give you the ultimate side eye when you take too many photos of him. He's always at your side but if you must leave for a bit he understands. As a puppy, he will need continued training in the basics, but he's already shown signs of being a very trainable and obedient guy. He loves people and other dogs and would be happy in any home that can provide him with the love and attention he deserves. He is a sweet and trusting pup looking for someone to show him the world, in return, he will give you all his love and loyalty for the rest of his years.
