Knows sit, stay, House broken, Shy
From Luca's Foster:
Luca is a calm, quiet, sweet guy who is shy at first but has warmed up very quickly and enjoys a lot of reassurance, pets and cuddles. He was hesitant around my boyfriend at first but he warmed up in a a couple days, seeking out cuddles and attention. He’s really good on leash and enjoys walks. He seems to prefer chewy hard toys and likes to fling them in the air to try to catch them on the bounce. He briefly gets the zoomies inside or outside and likes being chased.
He’s fully house trained. He barks briefly when he hears someone at the door and comes over to let you know. Once we acknowledge him, he stops. He has been sleeping through the night on his own bed at the end of ours. He has attempted to jump up on our bed, but as soon as you tell him to get off he goes onto his bed. He was quite relaxed and accepting of being bathed. He sits/lays down when offered a treat, and is pretty obedient going outside or back inside. We're working on his recall right now and he's doing great!
Luca's interacted with some dogs now and he seems good with calmer, more socialized dogs as he seems to match the energy of whoever he meets. We haven’t interacted with cats or children yet so not sure how he is with them.
Since we work from home, he's rarely left alone in the house but when we we leave him, he stays in the bathroom with his crate door opened, blankets on the ground, food and water. He barks for a few minutes right after we leave but stops shortly after. He's always super happy to see us when we get back, there are no accidents and he seems calm. The longest we've left him alone is 7 hrs.
Luca is a really bright guy who loves following you around the house and being stimulated with games, but is also happy to relax when we’re relaxing. He’s a very good boy, and would probably love to be in a home where he can be around his owners a lot, get in lots of walks and cuddle time as well.
