This is Cedar. Cedar carries things. That's his thing. If you don't mind your things, mostly socks and other soft items, being picked up and carried around (never chewed up) then Cedar might be the dog for you. We think it's the cutest thing ever. If you don't mind this one thing about him, you will have adopted, in our opinion, the perfect dog. Cedar was at our home for maybe 30 minutes and he had bonded with everyone in the house. He loves everyone unconditionally and without hesitation. He loves to be loved and petted and just touched in general. He will do anything you want him to do if it means you are touching him. He'll let you cut his nails, pull burrs out of his fur, or just rest your hand on him. In addition, there isn't a mean bone in this dog's body. My resident Golden is a big growler and teeth barer when he plays, and some dogs find it unsettling and can get defensive. Not Cedar. At first, until he figured out that my dog was playing, he would just immediately back down and turn away (for an unneutered dog that is very rare). Now, he just plays as though my dog isn't trying to pretend he's Cujo. He never growls back at him or ever raises his lip. Even when they are playing tug with a toy, or there is food between them. He's truly a lover not a fighter. He doesn't need to be crated, ever. He's the first foster I've EVER let roam my house when I'm gone and I've never come home to find anything other than happy dogs and cats in the house. He has never had an accident in the house and can hold it all day while we're at work. My 10 year old can walk him easily as he never pulls on the leash (he just wants to smell EVERYTHING on walks...hopefully getting neutered will cure him of some of that). He is gentle and sweet and follows me everywhere. Cedar is a dream dog, and even though he is 10, almost 11, he is very healthy and acts more like a 5 year old. He will be ready for his forever home as soon as he heals up from his neuter surgery. This is one foster I will miss greatly.
