Introducing the fabulous Fabio !

This cutie came into foster care at the end of Feb 2024 and is so excited to find his forever home!
Fabio currently lives with two other dogs and could live with another dog or not. He plays well with his brother (same size and age) and is interested and gentle with the resident adult dog in the house.
Fabio does not live with cats or kids currently but due to his gentle nature he could possibly learn to live with either. He may try to chase or play with a furry companion so slow and controlled introductions with a dog savvy cat would be required.
He is going through his puppy nibbling phase and is teething so he would need to be watched around kids as well, older and respectful children would be required.
We believe Fabio could fit into most home environments as long as he has slow introductions and someone who is willing to be patient with him as he adjusts and gets comfortable.
Fabio is curious and affectionate. He loves to investigate and explore new toys and rooms in the house. Fabio is also food motivated and a quick learner. He is working very hard on his crate training and house training right now. He can get a little anxious and cry when left alone but he eventually settles. His foster parents are working on this and it would be recommended that any potential adopters are committed to continuing this training. Fabio would benefit from having someone home more often as he continues his house training. Fabio has done well on car rides.
Fabio’s foster mom says “Fabio is happy to be near you, if that means either sitting on your lap or laying in his bed across the room watching you work. He is a rolly-polly puppy and seems to always find himself on his back with his belly facing the sky asking for pets.”
Does Fabio sound like the perfect cuddle partner for your home?
