Colt is a middle-aged dude who is looking for the right home to match his fun personality.
Colt came to us as a stray, but we think he must have been in a home previously. He seems to know basic commands, and he walks quite well on a leash. Why would anyone want to give this guy up? We can't tell you. We love his relaxed but happy temperament. He usually stays fairly calm, and loves to stretch out and relax with his favorite people. But he also enjoys going for walks, and loves to play with his favorite toys.
Colt would probably do best as the only dog in the home. His size and occasional bursts of energy might not make him a great fit for a home with small kids, though adults and older kids would be great for him.
This guy will be a fun lower-maintenance companion to the right family for years to come. Don't forget that APA's behavioral team will be available to help with any questions after he joins your family. Plus, remember that when you adopt Colt you'll also let us free up space so that another dog can join us at APA!
