As per the owner Dice has lived in the home with 2 adults and 3 children agres 3, 5 and 6. There was one other dog in the home that Dice loved to play with. He enjoys walking outside and playing fetch. Dice has a medium energy level. He enjoys lounging around the house and laying on his doggy bed.
Dice plays frisbee with his owner an he also likes to play fetch. He loves to tug on his rope with you and he chews on his doggy bone as much as possible. He gets walked twice a day. When he walks he tugs on the leash a lot and tries to run after squirrels and birds when he sees them.
Dice eats a mixture of wet an dry food. When he is eating he allows petting and he is not bothered when his food is touched or moved. He is house trained and does not have accidents in the house as long as he is walked twice day. He has never shown any aggression towards strangers and allows them to pet him when they approach
Dice’s previous owner reported he played with another dog in the house hold.
10/11: When off leash at the care center, Dice take no notice of the greeter dog. He lay on the floor during most of his session which may be the result of a wound on his leg. He was tolerant of the other dogs play solicitations.
