Up for adoption in Texas and New England: Matthew
Wow!! What a handsome boy!
Matthew (or Mattie as we shorten it to) has it all! He is two years old and weighs about 60lbs.
He is active and loves going on walks, playing with a ball and tug of war, but is also a snuggler!
Mattie is a happy go lucky, excited to meet you boy! He stayed briefly with a foster who had a cat and did ok, but we can't guarantee he's going to be friendly with every cat. Sometimes it also depends how dog savvy the cat is too.
He is mostly good with other dogs, he has a dominant, alpha dog persona and will stand his ground to hold that spot. So he'd need a meet and greet if potential adopters have another dog in their home, their dog should be more submissive. Mattie is housebroken and crate trained. He is good home alone, he stays in his crate with a Kong with peanut butter inside. He will bark once then settles down.
He has done well in his foster homes with adults and kids and even had fun during a sleep over. His favorite play activity: Kong’s with treats. balls. Ropes for tug of war. He walks really well on a leash.
He knows sit, stay and paw and is so cute when he curls into a little ball on the couch to relax/sleep or when he crosses his paws when he gets on his fosters bed while I get ready for work!
He is still working on some parts of being a house dog, like not counter surfing, but is doing good about getting down when told.
Mattie is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
