He's really, really cute.

I see beagle and shepherd, but it's really hard to pinpoint anything.

I could agree with beagle. Maybe some flavor of terrier and spitz.

Whatever he is, I wanna give him smooches. That is the cutest face. I absolutely love his eyes. I hope he finds a home fast!

I can't believe he HASN'T found a home yet. I am absolutely in love with the dog. I gave him a bath and although he clearly wanted out he didn't get upset with me at all and continued to enjoy the petting he got in the tub. He was happy to see me after the bath too. He was really responsive too. You could get his attention fairly easily and if you called him and made welcoming gestures he ran right over. when playing tug if I held the toy up he would jump once or twice but would rethink it and try sitting. I don't know if he had previous training or is just good at training.

The weird thing was his reaction to a family that came to see him. Now when he first met me we were quick friends, I reached out and he was happy to leap on me and get petting and play tug. But when this family came in he acted SO scared of them, he clearly was most fearful of the boy (he was like 8), followed by the dad, then daughter (like 12) and was most comfortable, although still weary, with the mother. He would dodge their hands but didn't stay completely away. He would come to me and let me pet him normally when they were around but just wouldn't let them touch him. After a half hour or so he had finally warmed up to the daughter and if someone was already petting him he'd let the son pet him but he continued to dart away if the son approached by himself. The family didn't see put off by it, not even the boy who really liked the dog, but clearly they decided it wasn't a good match.

Perhaps that is why he has no home yet, he's a completely different dog around kids.

Maybe it's a sign that he needs to become a chaz dog.

Kaiden has rears, and throws rears, even double dew claws.
