Hello my potential family, my name is Linux and I'm a pretty cool catch if you ask me. I'm 4 years old and currently in NC.
I do love my people, especially the ladies. It takes me a minute to warm up to men but once I know they're safe I'm fine and love them too. I used to live with small human siblings and I really loved them but I would do better with bigger kids in the home just in case I get too excited and accidentally hurt them.
I take my job of protector seriously so I do get protective of my humans. However, once a new person is in the door I do get a little frightened so I'll go into my crate to calm myself down.
I do love other dogs - especially ones that will play rough with me, but if I'm the only dog that would be okay (if you play with me). I'm not so sure about cats - I've never met one. I'm a smart boy too. I'm crate trained, house trained and healthy.
I like to take naps in my crate and often use it to just hangout. I'm still working on commands and since I'm really food motivated, I'll pick up on your new commands easily. I know my name well and I'm great at responding to my name and coming to you when called. Oh yeah, I'm sweet, at least that's what my foster Mom says. I'm a hugger. I admit it. I love to snuggle up with my familys and give tons of hugs to everyone.
I adore my humans and crave love and attention. If you love me, I will love you back double! In my spare time (when I'm not playing with you) I like to just relax and hangout with my humans. My only vice is counter surfing. I'm actually quite good at it so my foster Mom says my new family will have to be even smarter than I am and not leave things out within my reach.
I'm an outdoors kind of dog. I love hikes and just being outdoors (especially if you're with me). Before I forget, if you have hickory trees in your yard, I'm not your guy. I eat the nuts and that's dangerous, so I'd prefer a house without hickory trees please.
If after reading about me you think I'm "the one" please complete an adoption application (if you haven't already) and email my foster Mom Samantha .
P.S. I'm fully vetted, neutered and temperament tested so my adoption fee is $375 (a real bargain for a healthy GSP, especially a handsome one like me!)
