Erik came to the shelter as a stray but we are pretty sure he lived as a treasured housepet before getting lost. He has excellent manners, is gentle and doesn't jump on people, and seems like he is probably housetrained already. Erik is pretty much the perfect dog. He is calm but has a little bit of a playful side where he will fetch a bit. He loves treats and learns new things very quickly. His best tricks are crawl, going through a tunnel, and rolling on his back for belly rubs but he knows more! Erik is an absolute sweetheart and loves attention. He is a perfect angel for baths, brushing, and nail trims, has been great with all the dogs in class, and is also perfect with cats. What more could you want from a dog?! Erik would be fine in a house or an apartment but he needs to live in the house with his family, not as an outdoor dog. Erik is a smaller guy, really the perfect size! Come check Erik out...you won't be disappointed!
From his handler: "Erik's personality is calm and outgoing. Because when he walk or run he don't get tired and when its time to stop, he will chill and calm down. Erik is a playful dog around other dogs and gets excited when they want to play. Erik loves to play with kids and is very gentle when they want to play.
Erik is a medium active dog. He is playful and active but will chill after being out of the kennel. Erik learns really quick and well if you show him that you care about him and show him that your excited about it, too. Erik doesn't like toys but he likes treats and when he see that you have some in your hand, he will sit until you give it to him. When he lay down and you pet him, he'll roll over on his back.
When I take Erik out the kennel, he always goes to the restroom and he never uses the restroom in the class, he waits till we go outside."
