Ray takes time to warm up to strangers, but is a snuggle bunny once he gets to know you. He loves to play with toys and is learning basic obedience with clicker training. He is timid by nature and was not socialized as a puppy, so he will need someone who is willing to take time to help him see that the world is not a scary place. He has been in a foster home for four months and has made great progress. Because of his timid nature, he would do best in a house without small children. (They would likely scare him.) He is currently living with five dogs and absolutely loves to run and play with them. He is still all-puppy and needs exercise (mental and physical). He will chase cats that run, but ignores them if they do not. Ray is house-trained, neutered and up to date on his shots.
