My Story: I'm a happy and affectionate boy who is approximately 2-3 years old. I can be a bit timid with new people but once I know you, I'm extremely loving and sweet. I'm filled with joy when I'm being petted and loved and I like to fall over on my back to ask for belly rubs. I'm approved for families with kids over the age of 15, know some basic commands, and would love to attend obedience classes to learn more! I have a medium/high energy level and will appreciate daily walks and play time. Being at the shelter is stressful so I don't always "show" well in my kennel, but take me away from the kennel area and you'll see how totally wonderful and lovable I really am! If you're looking for a truly awesome companion, I hope to meet you very soon!
The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
