Phil's Firefly

 Cyber Sofa /

Firefly is a sweet boy!  He started off extremely skittish and still startles easily when he hears a noise he doesn’t expect, but he has come a long way.  He can be a deep sleeper and might have bad dreams on occasion.  He has a couple times woken with a huge startle ready to snap at whatever and whoever is near, but quickly apologizes with his sweet puppy eyes when he realizes he’s safe.  Firefly would do best in a quiet home with a very predictable schedule, people and sounds.  He is warming up to us and might be a completely different dog as time goes on.  He loves to be petted and will wander over to get attention, and will come when called. He does not like to be in his kennel when people are home unless it is bedtime and will whine pathetically until let out, even if it is only 30 seconds after he’s done eating. He is on a 7am and 7pm feeding schedule but seems pretty flexible.  He doesn’t need the other dogs, but he does like them.  He’d be fine as an only dog or one of the pack, he’s definitely not an alpha dog. He’s not the best on lead, but doesn’t have a need to run often, so a fenced yard is more of a want than a need, leash walking would be fine. More info to come as his personality develops.
