Redford is a handsome fellow--reddish brown with a white chest and spoltches of white on his nose and chin. You should see his coat glimmer in the sunlight! He's quite slender, with strong legs, the sweetest soulful eyes, and the most adorable face!
Redford is happy and eager to please, and has a very calm nature. He loves to go for walks, is easy on the leash, and enjoys riding in the car. In the fenced yard Redford comes when I whistle and plays enthusiastically with his foster brother, Bodhi. He would do well with another dog, but he'd also do quite well as an only dog—as long as his person/people are able to spend a lot of time with him. He is very attached to the people in his life and pretty much goes where they go in the house, usually lying down close to them—at their feet or in their lap. He loves to be petted, and is happiest when he is in someone's arms being cuddled! <p>Redford is a little shy in new situations but not for very long, and he acclimates quickly, and is very receptive to meeting new people. He already knows Sit and Lie down, and is working on Stay. Redford is also learning about crate training, and as long as he goes outside for bathroom breaks in a timely fashion, he is housebroken.<p>Very smart, he is both food- and people motivated and is eager to learn—so he has a lot of potential as far as training goes. He enjoys his toys, and also knows what he is allowed to chew on and what he should not chew on.<p>He is very enthusiastic when his people first get home but settles down quickly. Redford would do well with older children, but young children might be a lot for him to handle. Redford is fine with the other dogs in his foster home; the cats there are experienced with dogs—and now, after his initial fascination, he gets along quite well with them. Redford is a sweet, bright young dog who will make a great addition to a loving household!
Redford is neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative.
Redford came from a local shelter.
