Hello! My name is Hershey. I am a fun-loving, energetic, and silly boy who is looking for a family who can keep up with me. I absolutely LOVE to run and play, so I would really benefit from having a big fenced in yard or regular trips to the dog park. I should do just fine in a family with children. While I am friendly, families with small children should be aware that I could knock over little ones when I get excited. If you have other doggies at home, I would do best in a family with ones that are tolerant and laid back. I can be a little rough and rowdy and may not be the best match for everyone. If you think I would do well with your family, don’t hesitate to come meet me! Please remember to bring the entire family with when you come to meet me, just so we can make sure we are a perfect match. Once we get home, I would greatly benefit from consistent training. I am trying to grow to be the best doggie I can possibly be, so I will need some help from you. A new schedule and routine should help put me on the right track to establishing my proper house training habits in my new home. I am also already crate trained, so that will help too!

I would also love to go to obedience classes. We can attend classes right here at Sniff University so that I can learn proper doggie manners and cool new tricks. Do you think you’re the family for me? Come meet me today!
