Comments: Hi Everyone! My name is Bandit. I am an older and chill guy - 7 years young. But I am wiser than my years and have some pep. I love people and other dogs - all sizes. I was cat tested and they really don't interest me. I am also not interested in my foster family's parrot. I would like to find a fur-ever home that will love and cuddle me and take me on walks and to the dog park.

I really love this big silver box - whenever the doors open, yummy treats come out. I leave the counters alone, but I let people know I want something by saying, "boof-boof." I do like to be fed first, since I was found by Animal Control wandering or tied to trees in Iowa, I am still learning that there is plenty of food and treats. And I will always get some. I take treats gently so you will give me more. And I can sing! I love to sing and my foster brothers and sister sing with me. We sing several times a day, so I think a house would be great so my songs can resonate in the house and you can really enjoy my songs.

The last time Animal Control had me - I was there for over 2 months - so right now I am used to going potty while I am on-leash, but I am starting to go on my own without a leash. I do go pee out in the fenced yard. I love to walk - so I walk nicely on the leash. I don't pull much at all. I would rather be closer to you. And I just had a bath - so I am looking handsome now! My foster mom said I did great, even with the blower and I let her brush me a bit - but I am not used to it yet.

Please be patient with me, I am still afraid someone will leave me somewhere - so I don't like going out after it gets dark. I am just starting to enjoy walking out into the fenced-in backyard and laying down in the grass when all the rest of my foster brothers and sister are with me.
