Junior is about 6 years old and weighs 70 pounds. Junior is a very smart dog that can't wait to impress his new adopters with everything he already knows. He knows sit, down, paw, other paw, roll over, and touch. He's a medium energy dog, so he'll need daily exercise and of course, daily cuddle sessions. He is housebroken and loves his crate. He loves Kongs, bones, rope toys, squeaky toys, and stuffed animals. Junior also loves playing in water! Give him a baby pool or give him a lake, and he'll have fun all on his own! Junior is very unsure of new people at first, so he needs someone who will be patient with him in the beginning while he's getting to know you and adjust to your home. Junior is also unsure of dogs, so if his new adopters have a dog he'll require several slow introductions. Junior seems to do better with dogs that are laid back and non-threatening. Junior is a fun-loving dog that can't wait for a family of his own! He gets to hang out at one of our volunteer's houses to get him out of the kennel and she has nothing but great things to say about Junior! Junior is very loyal and a great cuddle bug.
Junior has been examined by a veterinarian and is up-to-date on his vaccinations and flea/tick/heartworm prevention. He is also neutered, microchip, and had a normal health check blood screening. Junior has a skin allergy that is being treated with Apoquel. This medication may or may not be something he'll always need to take, but The Princess Buttercup Foundation will help cover this expense in order for him to find a new, good home. If you are interested in adopting (or fostering) him please email Valerie at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a meet and greet.
