If you’re looking for an easy going, calm housemate, then Piston is your guy! This retired sled dog is truly enjoying life’s luxuries and is taking advantage of his new found life of leisure.
While he loves to laze around indoors, there’s nothing he enjoys more than a good walk outdoors. He’s a strong boy and his foster parents are working on his leash manners. He is mainly being walked on a harness, and is slowly getting used to walking to a gentle leader!
As he’s lived outdoors most of his life, there are still some aspects of living indoors that are new to him and can make him nervous. But he has adjusted well! Piston is slowly learning how to play with toys, and is absolutely amazed at the TV – he will stare intently when it’s on! He’s crate trained and house trained, although he did have a few accidents inside at first. So we expect the same may happen when transitioning to his forever home. But he tolerates wearing a belly band, and adjusted to his new bathroom routine relatively quickly!
Piston’s ideal home would be in a quieter household, with lower energy levels. He would be happy as a single dog or with another doggy sibling. He has displayed minor resource guarding with his food towards other dogs so this will need to be managed if he lives with a friend.
