Demetri is a bit overweight at 12 pounds, but he's working on his weight loss journey with portion control and exercise. 9 pounds would be a good weight for this dog.
He's a really good boy. They all are.
He is up to date medically, including a recent dental in November.
Demetri has lived with men and women without issue, but he's a very loyal dog and can show some stranger danger to men when he's with his foster Mom. If he has a very high value item, there is a risk of him guarding it if you try to take it away from him. He will give lots of warning with lip lifting and growls, but if you continue to ignore his warning there is a bite risk with Demetri. Nobody should ever be taking food or toys away from a dog, and trade offs if absolutely necessary are the better route to removing an item.
We will not place Demetri in a home with kids 14 or under.
Due to his small size, we will also not place him in a home with a dog larger than 15 pounds. He has not been cat tested.
Demetri lived in a country setting. He's being fostered in a very hustle and bustle city setting right now in foster care, which is not his vibe. A home with a backyard, or quiet suburbia would be best for him so he doesn't have to feel so overwhelmed when outside, as he does really enjoy being out and enjoying walks.
