Description: Vail has short white-blond fur, with one tan ear and one brown that stands up.
Personality: Vail is very sweet, smart, and independent, and is one of the best dogs you'll ever meet! For someone his size, he is very enthusiastic about running and hiking. He is fairly easy to train because he loves his treats. Vail became fully housetrained and crate trained in a matter of days, and requires little to no supervision at home. He loves his toys and often collects them on his bed for safekeeping!
Vail is good with other dogs after a slow introduction. He's been going to a dog park, and he loves to run and play there with other dogs. We are currently working on leash training and he is definitely making big strides.
Animal History: Vail was surrendered by his owner and brought to a rural animal shelter in North Carolina.
