My name is Timone and I am a 1 yr. old lab/hound mix with tons of energy and even more love. I love snuggles and naps. If you let me, I can be your 45 pound lap dog! I enjoy a comfy bed or lap to curl up in. My bed is my safe spot and slowly my crate is becoming another too!
I am very food motivated which makes it very easy to train me, especially since I’m so smart. I have learned sit, down, to jump through a hoop, and NO. No is especially useful when I do something mischievous and works very well when said in a stern manner. Sometimes I am too motivated and go counter-surfing, it just smells so good! I love learning new things and am currently working on recall on a long leash. I am pretty good at it though I get distracted by different smells. You can see my nose at work! My foster family and I are going to keep working on that.
I love to run around and burn out all my energy. It’s even more fun if someone is chasing me. I need to go to a home with a fenced yard, I love running free and sniffing around for a very long time. I also love playing fetch; indoor, or outdoors! I walk well on a leash. The only exception is if I see another dog, rabbit, squirrel, chipmunk, etc. Well, you get the idea! I am a great walking partner though it doesn’t get out my energy. I need a different outlet to channel all of my playfulness and late puppyhood! I am very energetic and love to play. If I could, I would play all day! I love tug of war and it is my favorite game. They say that I am the best at it and that it is impossible to win against me!
I am still learning manners and would do best with someone who has experience with intelligent, strong willed dogs. I am mouthy sometimes and have a way of rolling around and mouthing though they think that I do this for belly rubs because I stop the behavior immediately when someone gives me a vigorous, satisfying belly rub. A family with children over 10 would be best for me as I have been very gentle and loving to younger children however I think that I can jump in the mix and play too, though my foster family says that won’t be suitable for young children; jump and play being the key words.
I have been with a 109 lb dog and we get along well. My foster family thinks that I would love having a playmate around to drain my energy, but it needs to be a playful dog or else the dog may not appreciate my playfulness, oops! I would still be great as an only dog! I wanted to play tug of war and lazy bones wanted to lay down so I pulled him across the room while still laying down. Yep, I am strong. I will back off when sternly told NO.
