|Russell with foster mom Sandy!|
He also fancies himself as a protector, according to his foster Mom Sandy: “Russell likes to "scout" the yard, making sure no unwanted dogs or cats are near. He would spend the whole day outside if he could. We have a couple of neighbors who have big dogs (Vizsla & a Golden). He loves to run (I say that with a smirk, he can't run for very long!) nonetheless he thinks he's running the fence with them, tail wagging all the way.”
He also enjoys walks but does like to come across as a tough guy to bigger dogs when they first meet. Russell may be a little guy but he doesn’t want to be treated like one! He isn’t thrilled with being picked up but would prefer to lay next to you instead. He knows a trick or two and is very proud when he completes them. This pup is completely crate trained and can be trusted on his own at home. His new forever family will be lucky to have this easy going guy!
