Hey everyone! My name is Linus. I came from Texas originally. A little bit about me…When I was picked up as a stray I was completely covered in scabies. My skin is healing, and my fur is growing back.. I was not used to human touch. I was picked up with my brothers who were in the same condition as I was. We have all come a long way. I am working on my socialization skills and I am getting better every day. I am still just a little bit unsure of people yet as I am trying to learn confidence, but I really love playing with other dogs. I am very curious about them, and I feel very comfortable around them. I also very much love any toys that squeak, as they are my favorite. My brother Luca and I hang out together a lot. I love cuddling with him. I also play with other dogs and little kids just fine. As I play with my foster sister who is 8 and very much enjoy it. I am high energy and I need a family that has the time and patience for a puppy. The reward is puppy breath and kisses!
