Captain would be great in a pack of dogs since he gets along so well with everyone. He is even very tolerant of other dogs that get a little testy with him. He knows his commands sit, down and is learning wait, loves going for walks and hikes, and walks well on leash. He loves lying in front of a large window or in the driveway observing all the goings on. He loves being outside but needs to be able to check on his people and assure they are safe and ok. He does very well with positive reinforcement that respects his integrity. Exploring new places is his favorite thing to do and being a camping companion would be his greatest joy. He loves learning new things and enjoying time with you. He doesn't tend to want to sit on the sofa and is more likely to lie at your feet or on his bed.
If you are interested in meeting Captain please complete an adoption or foster application on our website below. You will also find our available dogs on both our webpage and Facebook page below.
The adoption donation for most healthy adult dogs is $300. Special consideration is given to senior and special needs dogs. This amount only partially covers the cost of vet care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. All dogs will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and be current on vaccinations. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis.
