    He is gorgeous!!! I love his ears, even if they aren't like that in real life.

    I am seriously in love with this guy. I keep coming back and reading your description and looking at his pics. I want him so bad.

    This is all copied/pasted off of FB but figured the info was good!

    He's really awesome. I can't get over it. He crawled into my lap with the mauled 'gator for snuggles. Then I gave him a chew toy and he is contentedly chewing that now. Plays frisbee, loves the ball, ADORES the bite wedge. Is doing EXCELLENT with the Corgis, the BC, the old-man Mal. He's a tiny bit of a bully to Aikon but not over the top.

    He'd make a GREAT sport dog. He's young too, he's still sort of awkward and gangly but the drive is there, and the athleticism. I'm not one that recommends Mals often but he's REALLY nice. Shepherd-knowledgeable people would probably love him. I do ;)

    The rescue that picked him up: I think he's a great first timer Mal. Did great with my jerk dogs who do not like sharing their space and they never even looked twice at him. Most impressive considering how big he is!

    He's actually better with jerk dogs LOL I think his bullying with Aikon is Aikon is sweet and small. He doesn't mess with the girls because while small, they are bitches LOL

    He's been out in some SERIOUS thunderstorms too and no issues. He's the most disgusting water drinker though LOL It splats on the floor as soon as he lifts his head :D

    Rescuer again: I don't tend to like foster dogs right out of a shelter but he was a very amazing guest at my house. No issues with fireworks either. Fabulous at the vet too. We may seem like we are talking him up but he is such a naturally stable dog that it is easy to love him.

    Seriously, I am still floored he was a stray. He's just so...easy. Aikon is racing around the living room now for his out-of-crate play time and Vex is chewing a bone in a crate quietly. No jealous screaming or nonsense. He's just...well, he's just like Aikon honestly only older haha

    His tail is always going, he's a happy, sweet, silly dog. His recalls are fab, he is just SO HAPPY to be coming in for pets, he does this whole body wiggle, ears pinned, legs all over the place. He's just a doll. I can't wait for someone to get him because they are going to be thrilled.

    Pretty much, you just described Nico. He's king of the happy. The pinned ears, the dancing wagging, the all legs. Yup.

    He sounds like a real gem, and whoever gets him will be lucky. I am looking at getting dog #2 in the next couple years when I finish up my degree and am working in a more stable position and I am pretty much convinced now that I will have to get a chaz foster :p This guy sounds like he would be perfect if it was fast forward two-ish years from now...

    Anyway, hope you finds a home that deserves him!

    Yes. This. He sounds like he'd be so fantastic with Trent, too.

    AGHHH. Why can't I be looking for a dog now?

    Oh no, don't you do this to me :p I've already been lamenting over this for the last few hours!!!

    I swear, I can plan for my next dog all I want... but then I hear about a dog like this guy, and think holy crow he sounds perfect. If he was already local I swear I would have gone for it.

    Stop making me want wonderful things. I swore I'd wait another few years so I can finish school (umm why did I decide that again?).

    He looks like he'd be happy to help with your homework. DVG nat'ls are in Oregon this fall, I'm sure Falon would love an excuse to visit. :D

    I can't NOT smile when he's running at me. He's just so...HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY. :)

    Have not tested him with my cats, and to be honest, I'm a little nervous. I have two extremes - one female that loves all dogs and will not defend herself (and likes to taunt the dogs and run around so they can chase her - Kastle carries her in his mouth...) and a male that hates all dogs and will scratch the crap out of them at a moment's notice. I am thinking his prey drive will make him fairly naughty at first, but he's so sensitive and sweet I think he could easily be trained to leave them alone. I'm also a big fan of a ball gag so I may give him a toy and then intro him to the cats.

    OMG he would love Sloan. He adores bossy females hahaha

    Ohhhhh and there's that :D

    Anyone that is interested, know that I'm not choosing the home, I'm just the foster. The rescue is going over applications and such so if you want her contact info, let me know :)

    I'm DYING to teach him some fun stuff but don't want to take away the blank slate-ish thing he's got going if a performance home takes him.

    I can give you the rescue information? LOL

    I'm fairly sure there is a stipulation about your current dog(s) meeting Vex before commitment but you can see if she'll change her mind...OR you can COME VISIT ME IN TN. Omg, lets do that!!!
