Phoenix is a fun and energetic dog. He is slow to warm up but when he does, he is very sweet and loving. He loves to play and cuddle and is willing to do either as long as he is getting love and attention. Phoenix has been through basic training and is very smart and eager to please. Phoenix would do best in a home with someone capable of spending a lot of time with him throughout the day. He is not great in a crate and has some issues still with potty training. He does go outside through a doggy door but when the weather is not to his liking or he feels anxious, he will have accidents inside. We recently had a baby and are having difficulties giving him the attention he needs for his potty training. He does well with other dogs, cats, and children.
