SUPER TROOPER! This is a very sweet dog. He is exurberant and full of puppy energy. Trooper loves kids like they are his own and when he sees another dog, he become the ultimate social butterfly.
Trooper was rescued from Apache Junction Animal Care & Control. The facility has only 38 kennel spaces and a very small adopter base. As in most cases with kill-shelters, there are more homeless animals than there are safe spaces. Paw Placement showed up to pick up some kittens who were facing an uncertain future. Employees at the shelter begged us to take this young, awesome dog. How could we refuse?
Trooper will make an ideal hiking buddy and family friend. If you are interested in meeting Trooper, know that he will require a bit of behavioral training to properly channel his puppy-dog energy. He is bouncy but quickly learns boundaries.
He is as sweet as he can be -- and will bring joy to whoever is lucky enough to bring him home.
