Introducing Seymour! Seymour still has a little room to fill out but he isn’t a big guy at all – he only weighs about 20lbs and won’t get any larger than 30, if that. This adorable fluffy pup looks to be an Australian Shepherd/Rat Terrier mix and was born early this year.
Looking for a furry playmate for your current pup? Pick Seymour! This little man loves playing with other dogs. With as small as he is, he would do fine in an apartment but would do best with a furry sibling to help expel his energy. He currently lives with fellow ACR pup Lucy and the two of them are buddies. You see, Seymour is that quintessential big dog, in a little dog’s body. But he’s also not that little – small enough to carry around the house, but large enough to hold his own. And he doesn’t act like a 6 month old puppy (cha-ching!!).
Ok, so he still has a couple of things he’s got to learn, like housebreaking. So he’s definitely got that puppy-ness to him. But he is such a friendly and loving pup that with a little more time and consistency, he’ll have it down sooner than later! Keeping his crate clean isn’t an issue and he sleeps through the night, but when he gets excited, he tends to piddle a little; meeting new friends and Foster Mom returning home are the big triggers for accidents, but he also hasn’t figured out how to signal that he needs to go out. All-in-all, Seymour is crate trained and will happily enter when asked to do so. Sometimes there’s a little complaining once inside, but that doesn’t last long.
Seymour absolutely loves the dog park and has met several children there, elementary aged and older. He’s a pretty friendly fellow and gets along with everyone. If a rude dog comes up and gets in his face, he can be unsure at first but calms down quickly. Otherwise, he’s a wrestler with his friends and a chaser for the newbies in town. He’s a total ham, too; this lovebug fears nothing and no one and will soak up all the attention he can get.
If you’re looking for an energized pup who will love on you all day long, Seymour is perfect. It’s important he gets as much mental stimulation as he does physical exercise, because he is always looking for something to do. A focused puppy mind is much better than a wandering one. Several walks a day or a trip to the dog park are necessary for Mr. Seymour, but if he has a doggy friend to wrestle with, that will help immensely. He’d make a great long-distance running partner with his stamina!
