Christian is the best thing that has ever happened to us. He is a great dog. Christian loves to meet new people and dogs alike. He is very social. When I first saw Christian, he was the cutest little thing I had ever seen and I had to have him. Christian was 10 weeks old when he came to live with us. Life hasn’t been the same since.
My husband never even liked dogs before he met Christian; now they are best friends and inseparable. Christian wants attention 24/7. When I am home, he is under my feet wherever I go.
Christian is very playful. He loves to fetch balls, play tug a war and chew his bones. When we go outside, Christian loves to go for long walks sniffing things out the whole time. He loves to chase birds, roll around on the grass, eat the grass and mark his territory. Christian loves to go for car rides; always sticking his head out of the window, ears flopping in the breeze. In the winter time, Christian loves to run, hop, and jump in the snow; not to mention eat it!
Every night before bedtime, Christian rolls over onto his back for a nightly belly rub. He is so silly. I love knowing that when I get home from where ever I am, he will be there waiting for me; stubby tail wagging and a smile on his face. I love my dog Christian with all my heart!!
