Welcome handsome Herschel! This 5 year-old lovebug is the definition of sweetness. His favorite activity is diving in for cuddles with his foster mom. He’s well-behaved and very smart to boot, and is showing off his skills by being 100% house-trained and sitting on command. He also has learned to wait for his dinner and is proving to be a very patient pointer. Herschel isn’t so sure about other dogs, so we’d like him to go to a home where he’ll be a solo canine. He has been more successful with joining other dogs on walks, but will do best if interactions with other dogs are limited. That is pretty much the only thing that’s not picture perfect when it comes to Herschel! He’s such a handsome gent and he can’t wait to find that home who will love him as much as he deserves!
Pupdate on Herschel: We just discovered he’s a champion at agility! Not only does he have good looks, he’s got smarts, too! He zoomed right onto the A-frame, then through some tunnels, all like he’d done it a thousand times before.
