Hello, my name is Loden, but my foster parents also call me "Shadow," "Prince," and "Handsome Dude."
I am the sweetest boy, a gentle giant, who loves being with my humans and dog sisters 24/7. I love snuggling, getting hugs, and lots of petting. When you walk away from petting me, I try to coax you back by putting my paw on you. I will jump short fences and open doors to be with my family, so if you have to leave me alone, I need to stay in a kennel.
Play time is very serious, and it is "go hard or go home." I love other dogs. My foster sisters and I play all the time and love playing fetch and keep away - but fetch is my favorite. I love playing fetch in the pool - the humans laugh when I splash them with water because I'm an awkward jumper and swimmer. I love swimming!
I do very well on walks and am motivated by treats, which makes me easy to train. I am not possessive of food, but sometimes get a little mouthy with my favorite toys. My foster parents are helping me with that. Because I am still underweight, I can't exercise too much right now without getting tired, but I'm building up my endurance and stamina every day so you can take me everywhere with you (and I love to go!).
My foster parents have nothing but good things to say about me, and are having a very hard time letting me go, but they want me to find the perfect home with people who will love me as much as they do.
