Dog description

Smart, athletic, curious, protective, independent, hardy, loves most other dogs and some people, appealing face-most strangers and kids want to pet him.

Dog summary

A winsome 3 yo terrier mix who loves other dogs and running in the woods.

Quirk

When I'm in the kitchen, he pulls a crate mat out from where it's stored under a shelving unit so that he has a comfortable spot to lay on while hanging out with me. (If only I could get him to put it away again!)

Does best

Figuring out multi-step puzzles to find treats, such as those from Nina Ottosson and others.

Fun Story

He happily goes out with a dog hiking service a couple of times a week, but we had an "interesting" initial tryout: He went a little nervously into the van with the hike leader and a couple of other dogs to nearby wooded trails. Apparently he was fine on the way out, but on the way back, he bolted and got away from them. Imagine my surprise when I went to my front door in anticipation of the van returning, but instead found my pup looking both a little frightened and relieved, as if to say, "They kidnapped me! But I escaped and ran right home! Aren't I clever?"
