What kind of home would be best for me? Stewie is looking for a patient and understanding home. Stewie must have another dog in his home, he relies on happy playful dogs. Stewie wants a home with young adults, his foster mom is in her early 20s and this seems to be Stewie's preference on people. A more mature couple would be fine as well as long as Stewie's active needs are met. He takes to women faster than men. Stewie wants a home with no cats as chasing cats is very fun for him. He can live with small dogs as he currently does. Truthfully, the more dogs you have in your home, the happier Stewie will be. Stewie's perfect home will need to love him quirks and all.
What is my personality like? Stewie is the most loving and affectionate with his foster. He bounces around his foster mom's feet and is always looking for her. If you were watching Stewie through a TV screen with his foster mom, you would think he is a well adjusted dog. And he is, in his foster home. Stewie relies on his foster mom as a security blanket. He adores her and is truly convinced he has found his forever home. Us humans in the rescue world have to look at the full picture, fostering is about saving one life at a time so we can save hundreds over time. Someone will need to commit to coming to meet Stewie and know that you will have to break his heart this one time so YOU can be his happily ever after. We know Stewie bonds hard once he bonds. Stewie has the potential to be someone's very best companion if they can just give him appropriate time to settle and learn about his new life.
Stewie is leash trained, off leash trained (with foster mom), crate trained, mostly house trained, and is working on basic commands. He's smart and inquisitive, Stewie is young and ready to learn as much as he can.
How do I act when I first meet new people? Anti social and frantic, give him time and he will settle. You should expect a fairly long meet and greet if you apply to adopt Stewie.
Other tips and tidbits: Stewie is estimated at 8 months old. We celebrate his birthday 5/29/2023.
House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
