Hi, my name is Luca! 

I’m a male GSD-mix and I’m about 6 years old. I was found as a stray and am currently being fostered with two female GSDs. At first, I was timid and scared to meet anyone new but have always been very comfortable and friendly with other dogs. In fact, my foster mom says that I seem to be more confident when other dogs are around, which makes total sense to me because they are just like me!  I have been around a few teenage kids with no problems but the little kids scare me so my foster mom says I might do better with a family where there aren’t younger kids around.

I am fully house trained and like to go and sit quietly by the door until someone lets me out. My foster mom says I am such a polite boy! I am also crate trained, but it is not my favorite place to be for long periods of time. I am very good when left out at home. I just like to lay somewhere comfy and take a nap until my humans get home. I love naps! I am not really interested in toys or games and sometimes I get scared of those toys that squeak or make loud noises; I am not a fan of loud noises in general.  

I am not food driven and not even really motivated by treats but my foster mom did discover that I LOVE coconut oil. I know some of the basic commands: Down, Come, Crate, No, but for some reason I just don’t like to Sit. I am very good on a leash and even do well off-leash once I know my surroundings. My foster mom says I heel better than her own dogs! 

Overall, my three favorite things are taking a leisurely walk with my dog friends, being wherever everyone else is, and taking naps in a comfy bed. I have had some hard times in the past, so a low-key, relaxing life is the way for me. It would be great if my new forever family had a comforting, relaxing environment for me where I could socialize with other dogs and not have to be alone for too long. My foster mom says I am a truly special dog and will make someone a great companion.
