Available Dogs - Sonny

Sonny 19

My name is Sonny - part of the Sonny and Cher partnership - but my foster mom thinks it should be Sunny with a "U" because of my sunny disposition. 

I am a very happy, curious, intelligent and snugly 4 month old puppy that loves to study and explore my surroundings. I need to have a fenced in yard where I can RUN around, but I am good on a leash and would be happy with multiple walks per day.  I am very fast and a good jumper that loves to come running when you call and I will jump in your lap with a big grin!

My foster mom has been trying to start the training process and she tells me that I am a quick learner but I am a puppy and I still have lots to learn.  I can be a bit mischievous if I get bored.  A good bone and some one-on-one play time or an extra walk (I LOVE my walks!!!) will help.

I met my foster mom's grand-dogs and we got along great!  They are BIG dogs and we had no troubles even though I am much smaller than them.  I haven't been tested with cats yet.
