From the Foster:

Trapper is looking for a best pal! He loves to be around me whatever I'm doing. Whether he's watching me fold laundry or chewing on a bone in the office while I'm working, he's there. He's a big snuggler and loves to curl up next to me on the couch when watching TV. He does good on the leash and enjoys a good jog.

He gets along with my two resident dogs and plays well with my super energetic one (though I think he'd prefer to be with a human over a dog).

He is fully house trained, though on his first night in the house decided he wanted to mark a couple spots. Once I caught him in the act the 2nd time, a good "No" put an end to that and he has been very good about asking to go outside when he needs.

He does go into his crate but whines for a few minutes to begin with before eventually calming down. He really doesn't need the crate, though. He is not destructive at all and I have left him out of the crate a few times already when leaving the house.

Trapper is VERY treat motivated and eager to please which makes training easy. He does get SUPER excited when the treats come out, but he picked up the "wait" and "stay" commands pretty good within the first week of fostering.

Trapper is just a big sweetheart looking for someone to love!

It seems pretty obvious that Trapper has some type of Hound in him. He will bark and howl at the random squirrel, but it is something we're working on and he has started to show improvement. Shared walls may not be the best.

Trapper also tends to dart for the door and fence gate. I have a 6ft privacy fence, so I don't know if he'd try to jump over something shorter. He may be a flight risk until he bonds with his new pal.
