Promise has been around a 2 year old girl. He is tolerant and relaxed around the young girl. The surrender states that when the 2 year old cries that Promise with walk over to her, start whining, and cuddle with her. Promise has not been socialized with other dogs but when she sees them on the street she will pull and bark. She also has never been socialized with promise so, it is unknown how she will react with them. The owner says that Promise is kept mostly indoors and has a high activity level. The family describes her as playful, pushy, excitable, affectionate, fearful, anxious, and friendly (with the family).
Promise is not bothered if members of the family touches his or remove her food bowl when eating. When the family removes Promise’s rawhide bones, he will growl but will not snap. He is friendly when his family removes his toys and thinks they are playing. He does not jump on furniture. He is friendly when given a bath and brushed.
