Spencer is a sweet and tolerant little guy who is used to being a bit spoiled.
He has been around kids as young as three and was very good with them. He used to live with another dog and was fine with that dog, though he can be a little territorial with new dogs and may try to mark his territory. He is friendly with cats, though will tell a cat off who tried to play too hard. He doesn’t bite or anything, just grumps at the cat.
Spencer was once the pampered house pet of an older lady, who unfortunately had to move into a place that only allowed one dog. So now Spencer needs a new family to spoil him.
He gives up toys easily with people. He can be a bit protective of his treats with other dogs, though not with people.
He is very well mannered on a leash and doesn’t pull. He would very much like to go on walks and get back into shape. He loves walks! He does like to bark at things out on a walk.
He is described by his previous owner as cuddly and affectionate, social, and easygoing and mellow. He enjoys having his tummy rubbed. He does love to play and and can be quite active outdoors if you let him. He loves car rides, He also enjoys playing with toys.
His previous owner has said that he would make a great family pet. He would be perfectly happy as an only pet, though gets along fine with other pets.
