My name's Howie. I am 8 years old. I'm very quiet. My foster parents were shocked when they finally heard a sound out of me. I make lots of cute piggy sounds though. I love baths, long walks and sitting outside and just watching everyone go by. Even though I'm mellow, I get super excited on walks, so it would be best if I have someone who is comfortable handling a strong dog. I'm a people person. I love everyone. I love large dogs. Small dogs and cats? Not so much.... ? I haven't been around small children, but I am good with kids 10 years or older. I enjoy enjoy softer foods and my stuffed toys. I love cuddling and lounging. I would be great in a home with people who want a chill dog. If you're looking for an easy mellow big hunk of love that's me.
