Cleveland is a quiet, calm, 1.5-year-old gorgeous male dog who loves to give kisses. He is potty trained and crate trained. He gets along with other dogs of all sizes as well as cats. He’s quiet around the house, enjoying laying in his favorite spot. He loves being scratched and will approach you for it without being demanding. He loves going for walks, and does great on a leash, although he is a bit shy of other pedestrians (but not other dogs). He is shy, and takes a while to warm up to new people. He needs someone who will be patient with him and give him the time and understanding he needs to settle in to someplace new. He was turned in by his owner to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, and was picked by OPA for their rescue program, passing all their health and temperament tests.
