My story

***foster or adopt***
Est DOB: 9/6/2020

Current weight: 52 pounds

I like big butts and I cannot lie

 Are you a fan of the pitty butt wiggle? The blockhead nudge for pets? The “omg you are so awesome, I love you so much” pibble hug?

 Shamu is your soul mate then. Shamu is the longest resident in the rescue and is looking for a foster or an adopter or both!

 He’s about 1.5 years old and weighs a solid 52 pounds. He was found with a chi mix that he did well with. Some dogs aren’t fond of his strength and play style so he would need to meet any potential friends. He has been in play group before during training with other confident dogs. He’s also be completely happy as an only dog.


Shamu is strong - he loves to go on walks but is still learning his manners so if you’re looking to get toned arms, he will help. He does know how to sit very well. He also loves to play with a tennis ball.


Given he’s still learning manners and his strength, Shamu would do best with older children, such as teenagers. He also needs an experienced owner.

 If you are interested in fostering me, I’d love that too (just note my name on the app):

Please consider making this handsome boy a member of your family. As we are a foster based rescue, we do require a completed application to be submitted before we arrange a meet.  This can be found on our website at :

 $200 (including tax) adoption fee includes core vaccinations, rabies vaccination, heart worm test (in dogs over 6 months of age), microchip and registration, spay/neuter, wormer and flea and heart worm prevention while the dog is in our care. All breed and size categorizations are estimates.

If transporting out of state, the total adoption cost will be $500. This amount is inclusive of adoption fee, transport fee, health certificate, and taxes.
