Favorite Walk: Anywhere, as long as he has an energetic companion at his side
Best Tricks: He's learning to walk politely on leash and to sit calmly on command

Bio: Howie is a fun loving dog, just entering adolescence. He loves to play with other dogs; at the dog park, he is quite the social butterfly. He would love a companion who will take a jog or walk with every day. He has quite a silly and charming personality. Don't let him fool you, though; he does know his basic commands and is very smart. He is great with kids, but would do best in a home with older children, since he's in that gangly, clumsy puppy stage.
According to the ASPCA's "Meet Your Match" criteria, Howie is a "Go-getter." Want to get more exercise? Action is his middle name. His "Let's GO!" lifestyle will keep you motivated to get outside and move. He has tons of energy; and just like the sun, he's burning and working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He'll run for miles, chase a ball for hour, and still want to play at the end of the day.
