Caleb Cuddles hasn't had an easy time in life. When he was a older puppy he was struck by a car which left him with a shoulder fracture. This injury did not heal perfectly and if too active he will limp.
Despite this, Caleb has a zest for life! He absolutely LOVES water. He cannot get enough of it! In fact, when at the shelter the staff put a small kiddie pool in his kennel which he loved lounging and playing in! We can just picture him spending summers lounging by the pool or lake! Caleb adores people, including a 10 year old girl who he became fast friends with (see photos). He's incredibly affectionate and wanted nothing more than to snuggle with her. Caleb was also happy to show off his smarts, doing sit & down on command!
Caleb would prefers low-key/mellow dogs who aren't bossy. However, he would most definitely be happy as an only dog. He is NOT reactive on leash, and can happily and calmly be walked or go in public without issue. He's such a good boy and is very quiet in his crate.
This handsome boy very much deserves a family to call his own. He entered the shelter in July and we know his best chance of adoption is in New England. If you're interested in learning more about fostering or adopting Caleb, we'd love to hear from you!
