My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Say hello to Nugget, a genuine diamond in the ruff, with a heart of gold waiting to find his perfect match! This spirited hound may still be a work in progress, but he looks to his person for confidence and reassurance. Despite his uncertain start, Nugget has embraced the world-he now revels in car rides, aced his sit and down cues, and struts his stuff with impeccable leash manners!

Nugget would do best in an adult-only home as the only pet, but he does enjoy buddy walks with other patient pups. Nugget's hope is that he finds an experienced owner who will guide him further on his journey of learning and exploration.

And here's the cherry on top-Nugget's adoption fee will be waived as part of our Patient Paws special! This charismatic bundle of energy is poised to fill your days with laughter, adventures, and an abundance of tail wags. Are you ready to welcome this precious guy into your life? If you're ready for a whirlwind of fun, adventure, and endless tail wags, Nugget is here to be your loyal, playful partner in crime!
