Wyatt is a compact 6-month-old terrier mix who is bright and loves to learn. A bundle of fun, he is always up for an adventure. Exploring, fetching, playing in water, and learning to ride in a boat are some of his favorites. Wyatt knows basic behaviors, like “come” and “sit,” and rides well in a car. Although he likes to be pet or to lean up against his person, he is independent and comfortable entertaining himself! In fact, he sometimes chooses to go to his crate to chill out with a chew toy between activities.
Wyatt is a social butterfly, especially with other dogs. Because he is inquisitive, he may chase squirrels and bunnies, and while he hasn’t harmed the cats or smaller dogs in his foster home, he sometimes wants to play more roughly than they do. Wyatt would do best with a larger, playful dog that will let him know if he gets too intense. He does do some resource guarding, and we are working on his puppy chewing and mouthiness.
Because of his mouthiness and frisky nature, Wyatt will do best in an adult home or a home with respectful, dog-savvy teenagers. His ideal home will use positive training techniques to help him continue to become a well-socialized adult and will follow through with training. He will do great with a family that likes outdoor activities and/or running and would be a great companion in an active home.
With Wyatt’s treat motivation and desire to learn, he shows so much potential to be an exceptional dog. If you’re the type of person who wants a partner for your active lifestyle and want to train with your dog, Wyatt could be a wonderful addition to your home. Adoption fee $350
