A volunteer writes: What time is it? Puppy time!!! Champ is a big ol’ brindle bundle of energy who greets me with sweet stand-up hugs then quickly proceeds to get his bounce on; joyfully chasing after a ball, meeting other dogs with a happy tail and snuffling treats from my hand with glee. His oversized paws are always in motion and his nose works double time too, everything is a toy and every corner holds the promise of new discoveries just around the bend–Curious George ain’t got nothing on Champ! He’s almost house trained and loves getting out and about on leash, though he’ll need some lessons on technique as the rope ends up in his mouth more often than not. His former owner tells us he’s friendly with all strangers, kids and dogs he meets but can play a bit roughly at times and that he even loves taking baths. Life is for the living and young Champ simply can’t get enough of it! Are you ready to be teacher, snuggle buddy and playmate to a bouncing baby boy?
