My story

Hi, my name is Dennis! I am available for Adoption -

Age       2 years
Size/Weight  medium/54 lbs

I’m very smart and kind; everything you want in a new best friend. Even though I have had a rough life, I’m still the happiest guy who will cheer you up everyday! 

My favorite activity is sniffing my treats from boxes when the volunteers tell me to 'Go Find it', and learning new tricks and commands  (as long as I get food in return)

What I already know how to do: 
Quite a few commands and tricks (sit, spin, touch, paw, down, stay, etc)
Engage, listen and learn quickly
Walk politely 
My dream home: 
A stock of nylabones and treats
A family who can give me belly rubs, love and continue to work with me
Games to do nose work with! I love my nose work sessions at C.A.R.E
No dogs 
No cats (sorry!)
What I need help with: 
Learning to not react on walks when I see other dogs
Remembering to not get too excited when I greet people

I’ve already been neutered and microchipped and have had a full veterinary checkup and vaccines. My adoption fee is $300. For more information or if you would like to meet me, please fill out an adoption survey at

Our adoption facility hours and location can be found on our website.

Additional adoption info

See our process and policies on our website. Our fees include a full medical exam by a veterinarian. This includes a Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) test for cats, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, deworming and Spay/Neuter. Dogs receive a Heartworm Check, Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, Canine Flu Vaccine, deworming, and Kennel Cough preventative. Our modest adoption fees do not cover the procedures and vet work that we provide the animals. We fundraise to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that C.A.R.E. is aware of are explained fully, (including daily medicine costs), to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.
