Additional Details:

Iggy is a smaller 69lb, red brindle male that is very timid at first. He is a littermate to two of our other dogs BT Ember and BT Fire that have been adopted and are great pets. Iggy's birthday is Jan 28th, 2008 so he is 3.5 years old. His sire is the famous Flying Penske! He loves to watch TV and has actually laid on his foster dad's lap and napped while watching TV - see his photos. He is living with quite a few other dogs including a couple of puppies in his foster home and seems to get along very well with others. Ignite crates quietly and likes to be in his crate. Although he can be shy out in public he warmed up in his foster home after just a couple of days and now is friendly and happy and a big snuggler. Iggy is living with cats and small dogs in his foster home so should be fine living with either. He seems to prefer women over men but did warm up to his foster dad. He could go to a home with only a man and would be fine since he would be forced to interact with him. In a family situation with a woman and a man we have noticed that he prefers the woman and takes a longer to warm up to a man. Iggy will be a great devoted pet if he just is given a little time to warm up. Because of Iggy's shyness we listed him as older children only, this is something we do with many shy dogs. We think that small, loud children would scare him and would just be a little too much for him to handle on a daily basis. We don't think he would ever intentionally harm a child in any way. He would probably be OK with visiting children although he may choose to stay in another room and not interact much.
