Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! My name is Tux, and with my fur tuxedo, I always look like I am formally dressed for any occasion! I'm a dapper, 8-month-old male Maltipoo weighing in at 15 lbs.
I am a fearless pup and have A LOT of energy! I love running in the yard and two-stepping through the plants and also love dancing on the leash and doing the samba with my toys! I am always looking for an adventure so I need an active home to keep me entertained! And did I mention I am a cuddle bug? I love to shadow my foster so I know where she is at all times. I get up pretty early early and immediately go into "play" mode! After breakfast, I usually go with my foster mom to work. She owns a doggie daycare so I get to play with her pup clients all day long! Did you notice my luxurious coat? It will require regular brushing and frequent maintenance!
I'm potty trained and crate trained, but am still working on harnessing my energy while on a leash - I just want to glide around without any constraints! I'm also working on stay and ringing the potty bell to go outside. Since I'm such a rambunctious, young pup, I can't yet be trusted at home alone. I need daily supervision or to be crated for short periods if my humans aren't around. I haven't been around many small children, but I do play bite. I'm working on it, but it would be best if my home had older kids who can be patient with me until I grow out of my biting phase.
Here’s what I’m looking for:
- Active household to match my high puppy energy
- No small children (under age 5)
- Would love to have other playful dog sibling(s)
- Large yard with a secure fence (I’m very curious and could escape)
- Stay-at-home human who can take me through energetic puppy to cuddly adult.
If I sound like a perfect pup partner for you please chose me!
