My Ideal Home:Phelix’s ideal home is with someone whose energy matches his own and can give him a consistent daily routine. He is an affectionate, young Frenchman with high energy and wants to be with his people, near his people, even on his people. He would love to share a home with a playful canine companion, but regular interaction with other dogs, playdates or trips to daycare would suffice.
Phelix loves brisk walks and meeting people and their dogs along the way. He pulls on his lead, particularly when he has pent up energy, so it can take a while for him to settle into a rhythm. He’s working on his leash skills and his new owner will need to have patience and a commitment to helping him with the basics. He knows his name and comes when called. He understands ‘no’ means no and reads cues from the resident foster dog (and foster family) enough to know when he can and can’t interact with him.
Phelix is a curious, confident adolescent who requires a watchful eye, though he has shown no signs of destructive behavior in his foster home. His foster family is diligently working on house training and leads him in and out of the house through one door. He has peed but once in front of it and has not marked in the foster family’s house. He is crated overnight and when his foster family is away and has not peed in his crate.
Phelix was recently neutered and had a surgical procedure to correct his stenotic nares so he can breath much more easily. He has sensitive skin and a sensitive belly, both of which have been helped with a limited ingredient diet.
If you’re looking for a playful companion and can provide him the routine and leadership he responds to, Phelix may be just the bundle of energy you seek!
Phelix was surrendered by his owners who are expecting a baby.
