Hey there, I am Felipe – I bet, you have already fallen in love with my chocolate colour, innocent face, and beautiful eyes. If not, let me endear you a bit more. I am very smart, attentive, and love to interact with my human friends all the time.

Now, you might say – smart, eh? Where is the proof? Try me. Tell me to “sit” or “fetch” – I can do these and more – if you don’t want me on your furniture, just point down with your hand or say “down” and voila, I follow your hand sign.  I also understand when you say “inside” and “outside” – I love that outside place. I love puzzles, and durable toys but you may want to keep items such as charging cords away from me as I am fond of chewing.

I am still working on my house-training, but I will use pee pads if I just can’t hold it. Another thing that I am working on is crate-training, but I am content playing with toys in a gated area while you are away from home. I don’t mind taking a bath every now and then but prefer not getting wet.

Other things about me – I like to take things slow on my walks. I take my time to sniff around and experience new smells. So, please don’t rush – not a big fan of fast structured walks. Go slow when taking me to a vet – I’ll do ok but I’m not a big fan.  I do like to be held so some nice, positive cuddling can get me through most situations.

The rest of the time, I like to go fast, in fact, I’m known as the “Jumping Bean” as I love to jump high in the air to greet new people or just to see what’s going on up there.  I do tend to get under-foot a lot so I would not be a good fit with someone who could easily trip over me. I’m pretty energetic and mostly prefer to play with small, young dogs who can keep up with me.  I probably would not do well in a home with cats or small animals as I am likely too much for them to handle.

I am a perfect companion – smart and adorable. Did I endear you enough to adopt me? Of course I did, start filling out that adoption form!

Medical Note: Felipe was given Pro Heart 12 on November 17, 2022 (this medication protects against heartworm disease for 12 months) and therefore only requires Nexguard each month for flea/tick prevention until October 2023. He is currently receiving Nexguard on the 16th of each month. For November 2023, he will require a new prescription of Nexguard and Heartguard or Advantage Multi for year-round ongoing preventative treatment.
