Atlas is a pretty laid-back dog at home. He'll have short bursts of energy where he'll want to chase a toy or have zoomies in the yard, but after about 10 minutes he just wants to lay down with a stick or something to chew on. He likes to roll in the grass and LOVES to roll in the snow. He's definitely a winter dog; in the warmer months he likes to spend many of the daylight hours laying on a cool floor or in some shaded grass. In the winter he always wants to be outside, no matter how terrible the weather is. He's protective of the house and family, and requires a slow, proper introduction to new people, but once he warms up to you, you're friends for ever.
