My story

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

Black is a handsome fella. Don't know why he gets overlooked.
He could not be a better dog. He COULD use a big dose of confidence. He is people friendly but takes a little time to warm up and then he is mush in your hands.
He is dog friendly and goes in a play group with other dogs during the day.

Black would benefit greatly from an adopter who would make him feel safe, loved, and who would work on building him up to feel like the good boy that WE KNOW HE IS.

UPDATE-Black has recently gone on a weekend field trip to see how he behaves in a home. The weekend fosters said he was absolutely wonderful, a little shy at first but so loving and a great house guest. He even let them give him a bath.

Black is waiting for his much deserved forever home.
