Sydney

Hi! My Name Is Sydney

I'm Available

Sydney is a handsome, shy, gentle boy. If you want an easy to care for guy, he’s the one. He is housebroken and crate trained. Although he won’t alert us that he needs to go outside, he has not had a single accident in our house, as we keep to a schedule for multiple potty sessions per day. He loves his crate or any quiet space where he feels secure. His favorite spot is at my feet under my desk while I work all day. He rarely moves from his safe spot, so we have no issues with any destructive behavior. He is very good with our resident dog. He won’t play, but he is mostly un-reactive. He does accept treats from our hands, and in the most gentle way (he loves milk bones, cheese, and hot dogs). He also will allow very slow gentle petting, brushing, being picked up, etc. There is not a mean bone in his body, but he is still very much adjusting to a life inside a house with loving humans. He has been around older kids, and while my energetic 12 year old is son sometimes a bit overwhelming for him, he does allow my son to quietly approach him, give him treats, and pet him. And he will eventually lay down a relax with my son, but only in his safe spot. Although Syd is still working through his shyness, I am confident there is a VERY smart boy in there. He is very good at listening to me on walks (he walks wonderfully on a leash once he has gotten his “business” out of the way), looks to me for calming words when he gets startled, and I think would someday be a great candidate for CGC certification. He has the most adorable snore when he’s sleeping, and once in a while falls asleep with his little tongue sticking out. Sid will make an amazing, easy dog for someone willing to have the patience to go at his pace!
