Raleigh is a LOVER. He likes everyone he meets. If you’re not giving enough attention, he will push his way under your arm, onto your lap, or grab your arm / hand with his mouth to get your attention. He LOOOOVES to give kisses. Like, incessantly. He has gotten better with being told too much or sitting before he gets attention but I think this is just his personality and needs a family that will be ok with it. This is why I’ve recommended no small children. He means no harm but he would likely be too overbearing for a small child. He is absolutely a velcro dog and always wants to be with his person. He will follow you wherever you go. He’d probably also do best with a family that is home more often than not.
He loves food which makes training a little easier but it also means he will counter-surf (this includes jumping on the stove if something is cooking) or be in your face if you have food. We’re working on his manners but his family will need to continue with that when he goes home.
