Bryce is a sweet, quiet boy. I have never heard him bark! He knows his name and comes when I call him. He loves walks, his food, treats and sleeping on his dog bed. On his walks, he struts along, sniffing here and there. He can be a little leary of loud traffic if we are near a busy road but keeps on moving along. He is great meeting dogs along the way. Greets them with wagging tail and a good sniff. He perks up at birds and squirrels on the lawns but doesn't pull or strain on the leash. He eats his food and loves all treats, dog ones and apples, carrots, bananas. He can be a little grabby taking treats so I use a flat palm. He curls up on all the dog beds and sleeps well all night. Since on the prednisone he can get a bit restless at night and goes downstairs so I follow and put him out for a pee. That should all stop once he's off those meds.
He follows me upstairs and down and sleeps close by. He seems a bit more comfortable with women than men. He's a drippy, loud drinker! LOL. He doesn't really let me know that he has to go out except that he'll get up from sleeping and pace a bit. He seems to know the sit command but that's about it.
He's good with the grandkids. He doesn't get all in their faces or jump up or anything. He actually tends to retreat away if things get too loud. He is very scared of loud noises. Anything banging or dropping on the floor sends him running away from it. He really hasn't improved in the 2 months that we've had him. He is very cautious on smooth flooring, hardwood and tile. I don't think he has ever gone from one end of my kitchen to the other. Not sure if he wasn't allowed in the kitchen in his previous home or if it's too much tiled floor. He will do the wood stairs but we do have carpet runners on them. He hasn't gone down the basement stairs (also has runner) even to follow his foster Dad with a yummy bowl of popcorn. He doesn't bother with soft toys but seems to enjoy a kong. He will initiate a quiet game of "bitey face" with Jersey. We had 15 lb. Oscar over March break and he was almost scared of him. He rides well in the car and is great at the vet.
