Foster Home Feedback 

** NO cats, older/considerate children only

7/21/2022 Foster Feedback: Viking is a goofy guy that will definitely keep you entertained! While he currently spends most days flopped over watching his foster dad work from home, he is still a puppy with a lot of energy. Viking was likely never a house dog, but he is so smart and eager to please, making training him fun and rewarding! Other benefits of being new to house dog life include: he DOESN’T react to doorbells on TV, actual doorbells, knocks on the door, or any of the sounds that are made in our 100-year-old apartment building.
Viking has learned a lot about being a house dog in the few weeks that he has been with us. He is house-trained, great on a leash, and doesn’t pull on walks. He sleeps in his crate at night and when we are gone. He would love to sleep in your bed at night but would still prefer if you kept his crate around as a safe space for him. On the 4th of July, he heard his first firework and made a b-line for his crate where he put himself to bed for the night! He loves to snuggle and will gladly accept kisses all over his adorable face. He will boop you with his paws and can get mouthy when playing, but is learning to be redirected with toys. We would recommend a home without younger children for Viking as he is still learning to be gentle. He thrived when we were babysitting another foster. The two of them wore each other out and Viking didn’t come to us for rough play, as well as he was more focused when we did structured training. He would love to be part of a pack! Viking loves house dog life but he really loves lake-dog life. He loves the car ride there but not nearly as much as the swim in the lake, being towel-dried, and the nap he takes in the sun afterward.

7/21/2022 Volunteer Feedback: Viking is one of those extra special dogs. There's just something about him, it's hard to explain. He is so friendly and affectionate. He loves to give hugs! He also loves chomping on toys and bones and appreciates when his human friends join him by holding them for him or letting him press them into an available leg for leverage. He behaves very well on walks and in the car. He responds well to commands - he's also a quick learner! Viking also enjoys the finer things in life like puppuccinos and spray cheese. If you give him the chance, he will swiftly steal your heart.
