Osito is affectionate, playful, friendly, and full of energy. He needs someone with an active lifestyle who is able to give him plenty of exercise, playtime, socialization, love, and attention. Osito is a great dog and we never imagined that we would have to find a new home for him, but recent medical issues in the family have forced us to make a lot of changes and we can no longer give him the life he deserves. He is intelligent and eager to please, so he is obedient and easy to train. He’s house and crate trained, and has never had any behavioral or health problems. He is very friendly and good with small children, babies, and other dogs (no experience with cats). Sometimes he is a little too friendly and gets very excited when he’s in a new place or meeting a new person, but he will still listen to commands and sit/stay when told (especially if you have treats). He loves being outdoors; he loves swimming and is a great hiking companion.
