From the Foster:       

Lion, also known colloquially as Lionel Richie, is 100 pounds of absolute laziness. This dog needs to nap constantly. Ten minutes of playing fetch in the backyard wears him out and he's ready for a nap. Just ate dinner? Ready for a nap. Made eye contact with you? Ready for a nap.

When he's not napping, Lionel loves taking walks and watching out for squirrels. He's also starting to get into the newest season of the Bachelorette. He groans a lot when we watch, but honestly, it's because a lot of those men aren't good enough for Michelle and he knows it. 
He's good with humans and has become our little (big) shadow as we move from room to room. Lionel also loves his crate and occasionally wanders in there for a little peace and quiet. Bedtime has been the easiest with him too; our key phrase "time for bed!" and Lionel heads into his room and lays down on either his dog bed or in his crate. He's been silent until we get up the next morning and then does a little happy dance when he sees us.
Lionel sounds perfect for you, right? Well, plot twist because he does not want to share you with any other dog. Lionel is not dog friendly and is the reason he was originally surrendered. He's clearly very selfish and can't handle attention on another dog--and honestly, with that face, we really can't blame him.
