Hi! My name is Shiner, can I be your shining star? I'm an older Dalmatian mix but don't let my age fool you: you'd think I was a puppy with my energy level. I'm just like any other puppy except I'm already potty trained! No pesky messes to clean up! I am a big goofy dog who happens to be deaf. I do very well with hand signals and love to be by your side any chance I get! I like kids, but do better with older ones since I'm a big guy and can knock over smaller children in my excitement. I would do best in a home without other dogs since I am deaf and don't pick up well on social cues. I'm energetic and playful without being super hyper. I can go for a run with you or happily mosey along and take in all the smells on a nice slow stroll. I love bath time which is great because I enjoy a good roll in the yard too. If you think you could be a good fit for me, please contact Barkies. I was saved on my last day at the shelter and can now live the rest of my life outside of four walls! I have been in their care for some time now, and would really appreciate a loving home to call my own...are you the one?
