Nick-Knox who's there... Introducing SEPR Knox !
Our big black cuddle bug. This guy will knock you out with his puppy like demeanor and love for play time. So far his favorite toy is a yellow tennis ball....he will walk around with it in his mouth all night if you let him. He loves to play catch and is very good with the GIVE command! We are working on our manners and trying to learn that just because you are happy about EVERYTHING doesn't mean you must jump. He loves to jump from couch to couch and over anything in his way. We are also learning that jumping up on his humans is not always welcomed with open arms.
Mr. Knox thinks he's quite sneaky and does an army crawl at times. He will just plop down on the floor or grass and army crawl his way to his next destination. Knox loves belly rubs and snuggling up next to his humans on the couch after a good play session. He does really great in his kennel no accidents! I will let you know that I want to come out with a little whine here and there but I quiet very quickly with a No or UH AH. A kong with Coconut Oil or Pumpkin helps lots! I am working on learning commands and am catching on to sit and wait. I love treats when I'm learning so I should catch on quickly. FM says I am great on car rides though I have only been on few. My freedom ride and to the vet. She says I sit nicely and stay quiet. I have lots of adventures to tackle in the future and you can bet I'm excited!
I am getting oh sooo comfortable with a home and a foster family. I am showing more and more of my wonderful personality every day. I'm a big cuddle bug who loves his belly rubs, but on one condition however. I need to have exercised my body and mind. I'm learning my commands. I know sit, shake, lay down and look! Now mind you I'm not shy when it comes to cuddling! If you want to scratch my belly you got it! I'm kind of sloppy though with my cuddling because I'm not aware of my size. I will tell ya lap dogs come in all sizes so you might as well accept it!
Did I tell you I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE my tennis ball. I can carry it around all day if you will let me. I'm doing really well with catch and I am learning to bring the ball back! I know how to "give" and don't argue about giving up the ball. I LOVE bath time even! I have no problems hopping right in the tub! Sometimes I will even jump in there when it's not bath time just because I can.
I get up pretty early with my foster parents. We have a routine of me laying down and waiting for my breakfast. When I’m done I go out for a bathroom break and maybe some laps around the yard before I curl up and go right back to sleep. I do sometimes like to whimper in my crate. I cry because I think I need to come out and be with you but I usually quiet down pretty quickly ....I don't mind so much being in my crate if I have had some good quality time with my ball and you. I will settle in my crate for the day while you are at work making money for my food and toys! I do my part by keeping my crate clean just so you know.
I get along great with my human and furry foster siblings. (3 to be exact) I like to find my human bro when he's playing hide and seek with me. He gives me so much attention and he loves running with me, petting me and he just talks to me like we are best buds. My furry siblings ...well we like to run and play too! We get along great! I even share my ball and water with them. I can be stubborn sometimes like a teenager but I'm very sweet and am I happiest when I make you proud of all of my good manners! I bet you are wondering if I like cats. I don’t mind them but my foster parents said I will need some boundaries. Whatever that means…. Did I tell you like car rides to? I get a little nervous when I’m left alone and I will bark until you get back. BUT if I have my tennis ball I don't get so worried. You have to come back to throw it right?
Oh before I go I can’t forget to tell you about my other favorite thing. Can you guess? It starts with an H and ends with dog…. It’s a HOT DOG! It is my most favorite treat! I will do anything for them! Even listen to commands and leaving my GL alone....most of the time. Oh that GL is a collar for my nose to help me walk nice. So if you have a family of kids, pets and are active I can be the right boy for you! I think I might even enjoy some agility training too if you were thinking about me.
