Thaxton loves getting treats of people food but he's very polite while we're eating and doesn't go after our food. He's still being trained and there are a few things he's got to work on a lot more but he's always very well behaved - if he gets a little crazy running around with his toys he takes it down a notch when you tell him to calm down. If a squirrel starts teasing him and he decides he needs to try to run after it he'll tug at the leash a bit but stops when you tell him 'no.' Other dogs in the neighborhood don't bother him much - he rarely ever barks just gets very interested in them.
Thaxton is a very funny quirky dog, if there's a strange noise on the tv he'll trot over with his head tilted and his nose right up near the tv to figure out what's going on. He's makes lots of goofy noises in his sleep, whenever he's given a rawhide bone he makes a huge deal out of trotting around the house with it proudly before 'burying' it in his blankets, digging it back up and burying it another dozen times and then finally chewing on it. He loves swinging on our front porch swing and pushing the swing with his nose when no one is sitting in it.
Thaxton loves his kennel, he often goes inside after a walk or a treat to roll around snorting and growling and kicking happily. He's still pretty shy around new people sometimes but after a minute or so he's full of kisses and happy wiggles for his new friends. He loves to try to hop into the shower with us and he's been having a blast running laps around the backyard and playing fetch.
