This little guy is so smart, he knows basic commands and is eager to please, is potty trained on a schedule, uses potty pads, doesn’t mark inside the house and is super friendly.  He loves being outside, going on walks, hikes or just hanging out, outside with his human, would be fabulous for him.  “Happy” , his nickname, is pretty independent, he doesn’t demand a lot of attention, but he loves to be by his human or in the same room with them.  He is kennel trained, but does ok left in a room with the door closed, which he prefers over a kennel.  He’s not a big barker, just to bark, only if there is a reason, more out of fear, someone knocking on the door, for example but he understands NO and will stop barking.  Happy LOVES toys, any kind of toys, but the squeaky kind are his favorite.  Christian  does need eye drops to keep his eyes moist and he had a skin infection, (not contagious) and his hair is now starting to grow back from this, other than this, this young Senior, definitely hasn’t let age hold him back from having fun and he has a lot of bounce in his step, definitely doesn’t act like a Senior.  Christian  gets along great with his foster dog sisters, (although he does like smelling their butts and they’re not too thrilled about that, lol)  and the cats here. .  
Christian  is looking for a human companion that will love him forever, he’d be a great dog to take to work, visiting with people, he’s good with older kids, we have no information on younger kids, but I’m thinking he’d be ok.  He LOVES to please and reacts well to praise. He’s a bright spot in this foster moms day and he’ll be that in yours as well.  Don’t let his age fool you, he’s young at heart and has a lot of love to give and loves adventures.  He also rides great in the car, so he’s a good traveler.
