Remember when free hugs were a huge trend? Well Micah’s never gotten over it — and he’ll hug you every time you come home. This sweet 3-year-old loves, in this order, cuddles and the mysterious things that live in trees. And he has smarts to match his excellent taste: he’s conquered his fear of stairs, is learning leash manners, has catch mostly figured out and is eager to learn allllll the things. He’s even fully house trained, so you can confidently hang one of those “0 days without accidents” posters at your place.

“This dog is a total catch,” his foster parent says. “Micah is the ultimate good boy.” Bonus: is a total gent around cats. “REPEAT,” his foster adds, “THIS. DOG. LIKES. CATS.”
