Hi, I’m Baloo! I’m about seven years old and weigh about 55 lbs. I still need to gain a bit of weight but that shouldn’t be a problem because I love food. I’ll even do a little dance for you as you get my food ready for me.
I’m very shy meeting people but once I warm up I’m super affectionate and playful. I love being around people and am playful with other dogs. I would probably do best with someone home most of the time or a house with another dog. My foster family doesn’t have small children, but think I would do well with them, too. I’m a pretty mellow guy!
I love being pet and scratched all over and enjoy being outdoors. I don’t play with toys but am slowly learning to catch a ball when it’s thrown to me. Going on long walks and digging in dirt are my favorites. I have to be leashed at all times right now, as sudden noises can startle me. I’m getting used to the urban environment, though, and recover from these scary moments quickly. Lots of noises that used to scare me don’t anymore!
I don’t like my crate or being enclosed in anything, really. I’ll bark when I feel trapped but otherwise don’t say a peep.
If you have a little void in your heart, let me fill it for you!
