Tidbits: Initially, Bishop was shy and timid upon arrival. He is not a demanding fellow but he will politely ask for some affection. He is learning how to interact with both people and dogs (and doing very well). He is content to sit next to you on the sofa and loves to sleep snuggled up next to you in your bed. Playing with toys are not his thing but chewing a bone makes his day. If adopting a true gentleman is what you wish, Bishop is the answer.
The adoption fee for this dog is $150.00 which includes altering, heartworm testing, vaccines, micro-chipping, harness, leash and identification tags. This dog is being fostered in a private home and is not available for viewing.
