Larry is a low-rider and our best guess on his mix is bulldog and pug. What a great mix! He is right at 25 pounds and around 2 years old so he is a perfect size, shape and age! He is a gentle boy that looks a bit like a tough guy – but don’t let that fool you – he is a total sweetheart!
He is still learning housebreaking and crate training, but has pretty much picked up on them both. He will run right to the door as soon as he comes out of his crate, so we think he is very smart and a quick learner!
Larry lives with other dogs in his foster home and he seems to really like them! He is curious and seems to really want to play. He hasn’t totally opened up yet, but we will keep you posted if he turns into a good playmate! While he doesn’t play yet, he is very tolerant and happy to be with the other dogs (big and small). If things get to crazy, Larry will just go and chill out under a shady tree!
Larry is submissive to both people and dogs. He really wants to get lots of love from people but is very careful about asking for it and gently gives kisses. Right now he is nervous in new situations (like riding in the car) and will look to his foster family for comfort – it took about 10 minutes for him to fall in love with them! Once he realizes you are there to love him then he is a total marshmallow. He will work his itty bitty legs and jump up to sit next to you.
He is a relatively low energy dog. He would do great with a few walks a day and a backyard to explore. He likes to sniff and investigate and then will come back to lie at your feet when he’s tired or hot.
Larry’s cute underbite and his short little legs won us over immediately! When he gets excited he prances back and forth and then will get running and his legs just work so hard. You cannot help but smile when you see him run because he is so low(and kinda slow) but he has a blast! He has an easy going, chill personality and we believe he could adapt to any home! Underneath that touch guy exterior is a big softy that will run(really slow)and play during the day and snuggle(and snore) on the bed at night!
